Healthy Potluck Recipes

Healthy potluck recipes have to have a couple of important components. They have to be inexpensive, feed a crowd, and something people will like.

Healthy Potluck Recipes

Why inexpensive? If I have to bring servings for 10 or more people, that will cost me if I am planning on serving smoked salmon (so I don’t bring smoked salmon).

Perhaps this is why I don’t really like potlucks. Inevitably, they are filled like the photo above with meaty chilis and meatball covered pastas. Don’t get me wrong – I like these things but I try to eat them rarely.

Also, usually there are too many desserts and my children end up eating five of them (and then complaining of stomach aches). Argh!!

You can be the one who brings the vegetable or fruit packed dish that will be devoured upon arrival. There are many of us out there – trying to be vegetarian or eating less meat and more vegetables.

Don’t tell anyone that you are attempting to change the world through your addition to the potluck. Bring it, put a little sign on it (vegan, gluten-free, vegetarian, dairy-free – whatever) and walk away. Watch how the pasta salads remain untouched as your dish doesn’t even have to be washed as some lunatic licks the bowl.

OR (even better), it remains untouched and you can take it home and have healthy food for DAYS.

What great potluck ideas! You're right about how hard it is to eat healthily at most potlucks unless you eat a salad without dressing and I'm never happy if that's my only option. Btw I probably have over 20 vegan chili recipes and your vegetarian chili recipe has become my go to. Everyone loves it. Thanks for the post.

Thank you! Love your recipes! Appreciate your encouragement. Back at Weight Watchers and trying to eat healthy. Thanks again:)

Great recipes. Potlucks can be very treaty to navigate.

Your link for the vegetarian chili is broken. Thanks for sharing your yummy recipes.

The link is not quite right but it will eventually take you there if you go to the search tool, type in vegetarian chili and go! Voila!!😊👋

I am SO SORRY about the broken links. I have fixed them. I had a crazy day when I did this post and I got interrupted (and forgot to check the links). Thank you for helping me out.
