Snacks & Appetizers

When you want a crowd pleasing appetizer that everyone will eat, my Buffalo Cauliflower recipe fits the bill. These are mega-tasty and healthy too, without guilty calories and bad-for-you animal fat. Buffalo Cauliflower bites go with summer parties, football games, and anytime you want some cauliflower that’s fun. – Veronica

Here’s my Mango Avocado Burrito Bowl, a spin on Chipotle Mexican Grill’s awesome burrito bowls. Use my recipe as a starting point and add any of your favorite ingredients like grilled chicken or fish to make your own. You can also turn this into an easy wrap with gluten-free tortillas.

Have an acai bowl -The acai berry is a grape-like fruit native to the rain forests of the amazon. It has a tropical, sweet taste and a very short shelf life, so we don’t often find them fresh in the store. Acai berries contain antioxidants, fiber, and heart-healthy fats.

My Spinach Artichoke Dip is a favorite snack for watching football, as an hors d’oeuvre at a party, or with a glass of wine on the deck while the sun goes down. 

Take it from me, as someone who travels often, you need a healthy snack recipe to keep your immune system strong when traveling. I usually make a batch of this recipe before a long trip. This recipe is one of my go-to healthy snacks when I’m traveling on a plane….

For easy Hummus: Vitamix for 1 to 2 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon of water if needed for better blending. Serve on cucumber slices, as a dip with your favorite veggies, or spread on a wrap or gluten-free toast. Sprinkle with paprika and sesame seeds.

Improving your diet is the most important healthy change anyone can make. Yes, you can exercise more, you can get more sleep, you can meditate. But if you’re still filling your body with junk, none of that is really going to work the way it should. Change your diet and everything else falls into place. Start with this healthier and delicious red beet hummus dip.
