It’s at this time of year where the idea of eating well goes out the window for many. With party season well and truly in the swing for many or if you are hoping to have a little gathering at home, you don’t have to go down the route of unhealthy party snacks. Let show you some fantastic ideas to turn your party into a soiree of sumptuous spectacle that is also sublimely healthy.
The Pulse Party
If you are after something healthy but will actually keep you full, pulses are the way to go! You can check out this black eyed peas recipe that is healthy, hearty, and feeds a crowd. The great thing about pulses, in general, is that they are vegan friendly. If you have plenty of friends that are jumping on the vegan bandwagon, this is a perfect way to load your dishes full of fiber, vegetables, and protein. Where would we be without beans? Your vegan friends don’t need to sit in the corner going hungry anymore!
Filling Up on Fat
We in the keto community live on a high dose of fact. When you are trying to keep yourself full, avocados are the way to go! But adding more fat to your diet is something that proved controversial but we have to stop fearing the fat. If you go for a whole matter of foods, you can stock up on butter, and even make bulletproof coffee for your party guests if they are not drinking. However, for those that need party foods that don’t come full of butter, avocado deviled eggs are fantastic. Full of fat and the flavors of Mexico, you can add a little sprinkling of smoked paprika to give this an extra edge. When it comes to snacks, deviled eggs are always a great way to keep your guests feeling satisfied. Full of protein and healthy fats, this is ideal for party-goers looking to watch their weight. Lest we forget carbohydrates are the real problem. And you might get a couple of keto coverts just in time for Christmas!
Kisir Under the Mistletoe!
Another fantastically healthy dish, but one that many people don’t know about, it is a salad that is usually found in Kurdish and Turkish cuisines. The great thing with this so-called salad is that it is incredibly hearty. Bursting with flavor the main ingredients of garlic, onion, and pomegranate molasses give this a flavor base that is unparalleled. But it’s also an addition that ticks two different food boxes. For the vegans, it is a perfect main dish, but for those who need a bit of lamb to go with their meal, this is a perfect side. Salads tend to be boring, but this is something that will keep your guests feeling full and you will no doubt make too much, meaning you’ve got a fantastic leftover dish for the next day!
Foods at a party don’t have to be all about chips and dip! Looking for something healthy but it’s also low-maintenance, these three options are the way to go!
