Stay healthy with these tips for your next holiday party.
• Fill bowls and platters with healthy snacks, such as nuts, whole-grain crackers, low-fat cheese and air-popped popcorn.
• Rather than serving salted mixed nuts or candied pecans, serve spiced toasted almonds. By replacing salt, oil and butter with cayenne pepper and thyme, you trim unwanted fat and add vitamin E, magnesium and fiber to the snack.
• Serve fruit kabobs.
• Swap chocolate peppermint bark for strawberries dipped in dark chocolate, which provide antioxidants, vitamin C and fiber.
