Make yourself and everyone at the party healthier!
28. Blood Red Beet Hummus with Carrot Fingers (3 Freestyle SmartPoints)
This dish of ours is great for Halloween parties (hence the “blood” red and the carrot “fingers”), but it’s also great for any party at any time of the year. Beets have so many health benefits such as:
- treat anemia
- aid in digestion
- improve blood circulation
- help ease kidney disorders
29. Pizza Zucchini Boats (4 Freestyle SmartPoints)
Get the irresistible taste of pizza in the healthiest way: by eating our Pizza Zucchini Boats! They’re super easy and fun to make, and the kids will love them too!
30. Spinach and Artichoke Quiche Cups (2 SmartPoints)
This may be a breakfast recipe, but I’ve found it to be an equally satisfying Weight Watchers appetizer recipe. I’ve found it to be especially good for parties that start earlier on in the afternoon. Quiche cups are just the perfect thing to hold everyone over until it’s (finally) time for the main course.
31. Tomato and Basil Bruschetta (3 Freestyle SmartPoints)
I may not be Italian, but I know a good bruschetta recipe when I taste one, and let me tell you, ours is GOOD. The recipe calls for a whole wheat baguette, extra-virgin olive oil, tomatoes, and other healthier ingredients so that you can enjoy your favorite appetizers and feel healthier too.
32. Sweet Potato Wedges with Chinese Five Spice (7 Freestyle SmartPoints)
Who needs French fries or potato wedges as an appetizer when you can have Rachel Cooks’ Sweet Potato Wedges with Chinese Five Spice?! I’m a huge fan of sweet potatoes, and had no idea that they’d be so good with some Chinese Five Spice and coconut oil!
33. Stuffed Baby Bella Mushrooms (5 Freestyle SmartPoints)
These mushrooms are great for popping and munching while chit-chatting with old friends, while trying to pay attention to an old family member, and even just while waiting for dinner–you know, those dinners where you feel like you’re getting old just waiting for it to be done.
34. Baked Coconut Chicken Strips (8 Freestyle SmartPoints)
You can enjoy 4 or 5 of these coconuty chicken strips for just 8 SmartPoints! Honestly, sometimes it’s hard to not eat 8 or 10…or the entire batch. But, sometimes I limit myself to just a couple of them so that the SmartPoint count is even lower. I mean, as much as I love appetizers, I do have to eat dinner too, so just a couple of these yummy strips is plenty!
