Holiday parties can be a calorie minefield. Mini quiches, chicken wings, cheese platters--and dips laden with mayo are common this time of year.

It's easy to eat an entire meal's worth--or even a day's worth--of fat and calories without ever picking up a fork or a plate.

When you're talking and standing in front of the food, it's easy to forget to be mindful of your eating, but when you serve lighter fare, your risk of sabotaging your calorie budget is reduced.

I created five new recipes that have fewer than 100 calories--and a sixth one that has only 113 calories! Serve these recipes at your office party, neighborhood potluck, or game night alongside a huge platter of fruits and vegetables.







NEW Prosciutto Lettuce Bites (20 calories, 1 g fat)







Pumpkin Dip (32 calories, 2 g fat)







NEW Easy Cucumber Cups (27 calories, 1 g fat)







NEW Mini Taco Cups (60 calories, 1 g fat)







NEW Festive Polenta Rounds (41 calories, 2 g fat)







Deviled Eggs (85 calories, 6 g fat)







NEW Wilted Lemon Lettuce and Beef Bruschetta (113 calories, 4 g fat)
