Holiday Appetizer ideas that AbundantHealth2day LOVES! in Grand Junction CO likes these 7 Healthy Holiday Appetizer Ideas

Holiday appetizers are a tricky business. You want them to be delicious enough to keep hopes high, easy enough to prepare en masse, and healthy enough that you don’t feel bad eating a ton (see: en masse). And in our personal experience, we try to steer away from getting too stuffed—gotta leave room for the actual stuffing, if you’ll excuse our horrible joke. But where there are needs, the Internet has solutions: so here, seven truly fantastic apps that check off all of the above.

1. Sweet Potato Rounds With Herbed Ricotta and Walnuts

Coming back to the sweet and savory again, these rounds are uber-tasty, and pack a great (albeit physically tiny) nutritional punch with walnuts, sweet potato, and cranberries. But maybe that’s just an excuse to eat more of them.

2. Goat Cheese Stuffed Figs with Pancetta

Balancing savory and sweet, this easy fig recipe will prime the palate for literally anything that follows (e.g. all of the mashed potatoes).

3. Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese Cucumber Bites

Finger food gone fancy-ish, these easy smoked salmon bites strike the perfect balance of being satisfying but not crazy filling—leaving plenty of room for the main event.

4. Pear and Brie Crostini

No matter how many of these crostini you make, it won’t be enough. We’re sorry, that’s just the way it is. They’re that good.

5. Roasted Pumpkin Hummus

Feeding a huge crowd (or fending one off)? Either way, this pumpkin hummus dip is the way to go. On theme, healthy, easy, and delicious. Plus, you’ll be getting a nutritional boost—pumpkin purée is a great source of protein, magnesium, potassium, and zinc

6. Crispy Parmesan Cauliflower Bites

These savory cauliflower bites are so delicious you’ll forget they’re also super-virtuous—giving you a dose of vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants.

7. Spinach Cheese Balls

Our favorite thing (cheese) meets our other favorite thing (spinach, when it’s done right). Luckily this recipe nails it: Just mix, bake, and enjoy.
