27 Aug / Entertaining Goodies
With Labor Day weekend on the way (and the holiday’s looming – have you seen the Halloween displays??!), entertaining and eating wheat-free and dairy-free takes some extra thought.
Below are a few ideas, although there is some sugar included – but nothing processed – I promise!
First up – Trader Joe’s always has great dark chocolate covered something and right now I’m digging their Dark Chocolate Almonds. Belgian chocolate and raw sugar – yum!
-Blue corn chips & salsa – you can never go wrong with this combo.
-Veggies & hummus – recommend Trader Joe’s hummus – best on the market
-Amy’s Rice Crust Cheese pizza (add toppings like chicken and red onion), sliced into tiny pieces
If you’re going to a BBQ or gathering, bring these yummy spicy mixed nuts – it’s from a recipe I snagged from a former roommate:
1 egg white
2T cold water
1/2 c walnuts
2/3 c pecan halves
1/2 c Splenda or raw sugar
1 1/2 t cinnamon
1/4 t ginger
1/4 t nutmeg
Beat egg white and water until frothy. Stir nuts into mixture.
Mix sugar and spices in large plastic storage bag. Add nuts and shake to coat.
Spread nut mixture on large microwave-safe plate in a single layer. Microwave 2 minutes, turn, another 2 minutes and turn and then a final 2 minutes.
Put in fridge for 1 hour and voila! Perfect party snack!
