It’s easier than you think to eat an entire day’s worth of calories just in the snacks at holiday parties, gatherings and functions. But going to a party doesn’t have to equal nibbling endlessly on high-calorie, low-nutrient dense food. The best way to avoid overeating the junk is to bring a healthy plate to share at a party. This vegetable wreath offers an array of micronutrients that are low-calorie and full of healthy fiber with a bit of zing from the healthy plant-based dip. You can lightly blanch your vegetables or plate them up raw for a colorful and festive platter.
Note: You can use any vegetables that are available to you and this is a great way to use up any leftover vegetables in your fridge.
Cashews – blanched almonds, macadamias
Lemon Juice – apple cider vinegar
