Take The FMD To Your Next Party
Parties are great! But if you’re living the Fast Metabolism lifestyle, you might see them as a minefield of unhealthy foods. So take control. Bring your own dish to the party. Here are my favorite ideas for healthy party food.
The Big Salad
We’re not talking about an ordinary salad, here. We’re talking about a fully loaded Fast Metabolism packed salad. Start with mixed greens or spinach and add your favorite goodies: raw walnuts or almonds, sunflower seeds, sliced mango, tangerine wedges, avocado slices, red radish, scallions, crumbled turkey bacon, sliced hard-boiled eggs, black beans, exotic mushrooms... you name it. Include one of these healthy salad dressings on the side.
Good luck making it to the table when you show up to a big party with a huge bowl of guacamole. Everyone will want to dive in! I love this recipe! Double or triple the recipe for a crowd. If you like, you can add chopped tomatoes or even diced jalapeno peppers. Skip the tortilla chips and bring raw veggies for dipping. Endive lettuce is great — separate the leaves, and they make perfect little scoopers for guac.
These Italian Meatballs have a great flavor — make a big batch! Serve with toothpicks, and you're all set!
Cocktail shrimp are great for a party — they are easy to make, and they taste great warm or chilled. These garlicky shrimp are so flavorful; they don’t need a sugary cocktail sauce.
