Everyone is gearing up to host a fabulous Christmas soiree with delicious food and festive treats. These foods are delicious, rich and loaded with sugar and calories. Dont get us wrong, we love them and it definitely puts our "there is no such thing as healthy eating during the Holidays" guard up.
This year for your Christmas party why not stir things up a little bit and put out some healthy dishes for your friends and family. These appetizers are delicious and they look amazing that is sure to add a festive cheer to your party. The key ot putting up these healthy Christmas dishes is "presentation".
Here are dishes that are our favorites:
Cheese Board Tree
Put out a variety of cheeses, crackers, fruits, nuts onn a board or a slate in shape of a Christmas tree. Add a few sprigs of rosemary on the sides to give it that Christmas tree feel.
Caprese Salad Cane
Slice the tomatoes and mozzarella into thick rounds. Arrange in an alternating pattern in a serving dish or a board of your choice. You can even add Basil leaves in between tomatoes and cheese. Drizzle Balsamic reduction and you are done.
Veggies & Dip Wreath
Arrange the veggies or breads of your choice in a circular manner to make it look a Christmas wreath. Add the dip of your choice in a bowl in the centre. Try to make it as colorful and festive as possible by adding different colored veggies and breads.
Pancakes Santa Hats
There is no party without a sweet treat. Believe it or sweet treats can also be healthy. Make some mini oatmeal pancakes, smear them with some cream cheese or whipped cream and add the strawberries upside down. They look super cute and will add a bit of whimsy to your Christmas table full of food.
Pinwheel Yule Sandwich
Baking is not everyone's cup of tea. But we have an amazing hack for this treat. All you need is a bread slices, cream cheese, strawberry jam, and fresh strawberries.
- Cut off the sides of the bread (choose gluten free for healthier option) and roll them flat with a rolling pin
- Smear Cream cheese and jam on it generously
- Cut up the strawberries and spread them on the jam and cream cheese
- Roll up the bread into a wheel and cut it up into slices
We hope these dishes inspire you to put up some delicious yet healthy dishes for your loved ones this holiday season.
