6 Party Recipes Under 100 Calories

By , SparkPeople Blogger
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)

I will be hosting a small holiday "girl get together". I will be serving healthy foods that I have found on SparkPeople. Report
I always host a couple of dinner parties, for family and friends. It is so nice to have a house full. I love it, even though it is a lot of work. Report

Yes, hosting and attending! This is a wonderful time of the year - a time to celebrate all of our blessings with friends and family. Report
For once, I'm hosting. I'm considering deviled eggs - they tend to be a staple at holiday gatherings with my family. We normally have veggie and pickle trays too. Grapes are also great grab-and-go appetizers. Report
