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.


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:

How To Make A Healthy and Glamorous Snack
The Tiniest (and Yummiest) Pizzas on The Planet
A Dip that Won't Kill You
Wasabi Peas: Are They a Healthy Choice?
Cheese and Crackers
Fun for kids to make and eat (adults too!)
Snap along to a healthy place

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.
