Healthy party food?
I can hear the sound of a million rolling eyeballs as I type that. But, seriously, there is definitely a middle ground to be found when it comes to healthy party food – somewhere between the cheese product dips and the funny flavored chips no one wants to eat. Maybe over there by great aunt Edna, who you’re always trying to avoid, especially when she brings that suspicious looking dip every darn year.
Holiday season is truly upon us now and before you know it, you too will be donning your favorite clothes and probably hanging out with some of your not so favorite people. Work functions, I’m lookin’ at you. But don’t worry! You CAN actually show up to your latest shindig with food that you can eat – while still being tasty enough that people don’t treat you like you bought another prepackeaged vegetable tray. DOWN with sad pre cut vegetables, low fat dip and gut-wrenching gluten bombs! Bring any one of these 50 healthy party food treats – drinks included! – and be known as the person who shares delicious food!
Just maybe don’t bore them all with how it’s paleo, primal and grain free. Not even great aunt Edna wants to listen to that.
The other advantage of this awesome roundup of healthy party food recipes? Everything is either bite size or will fit on one of those obnoxiously small party plates that’s really too small to fit the food you want onto but impossible to balance. Especially while you’re holding a drink and trying to evade people you don’t want to speak to.
I included as many ridiculously cute mini adorable tasty things in this healthy party food recipe roundup as I could. You’re welcome!
