Healthy food is a bit subjective depending on the way you choose to consume your macronutrients.
Some people choose a high protein, low fat, low carb diet, whereas others may choose a high fat, low carb, low sugar diet. Or maybe you prefer plant based or organic foods.
Either way, I have a few healthy appetizers that are sure to wet your appetite!!
The categories could go on and on as there are many different ways to eat that are healthy. This page separates our appetizer recipes into the more common requests for healthy appetizer recipes.
Low sugar is always a good idea
Low Sugar: I think no matter what diet plan your family eats most of us would agree that low sugar is one of the healthiest things we can do for our bodies.
A couple of ways you can reduce your white sugar intake is to use
Sugar substitutes such as stevia, xylitol, erythritol, or monk fruit sweetener.
Natural sweeteners such as coconut sugar, honey, maple syrup, and molasses.
When picking out your menu, try to provide an appetizer from different categories that way there is a little something for everyone.
Have 2-3 different appetizers for fewer than 10 guests. Add another appetizer option for every 5-8 more guests,
If appetizers are the only food on the menu then plan for each person to have 10-12 pieces during the first 2 hours. Add 5 more pieces per person for every hour after. If they are being served before a meal, then plan for each guest to have 3-5 pieces total per person.
