Why Wait for the New Year? Party Healthier Now

December 29, 2009   2 Comments

Why not start on your New Year's resolutions early this year? How about New Year's Eve? If you are holding a party this year, there is no reason to wait until January 1st, 2010 to start eating healthy.

Party-Snacks

To me, "snack" is just another word for "appetizer". And serving snacks allows you not to have to cook a big meal for your guests (hey, who needs more work?). It is also really fun to nibble on a bunch of tasty goodies instead of a big sit down meal.

I'm sure after a full holiday season of eating, your guests will thank you for leaving out the seven layer dip, meatballs, and cheese puffs. Actually, a mix of fatty and healthy would be best. You don't want a mutiny on your hands.

Over the last 8 months, I have featured a bunch of different snacks that would be great at a party. Here is my list:

The Tiniest (and Yummiest) Pizzas on The Planet
A Dip that Won't Kill You

I have made a simple, elegant, and nutritious snack for my New Year Eve's parties - Walnuts and thinly shaved parmesan cheese. One eats a small piece of the cheese with a walnut. Yummy with sparkling water or champagne. This snack tastes rich and so 2 or 3 nuts with parmesan does it. Not as low calorie as a celery stick but very low calorie for something so classy.

I make small cups by baking wonton shells inside cupcake tins in a 350 degree oven for about 7-8 minutes. After they are cool, I add a spoonful of crab salad. The crab salad is lump crab meat mixed with minced onions and celery with salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Then I put a touch of cocktail sauce on each one.
