Holiday Party Tips (cont.)
For some light party ideas, check out these recipes from the Weight Loss Clinic's collection (and see two new additions below):
Sweet 'n' Sour Turkey Meatballs
1 pound extra-lean ground turkey (around 6-8% fat)
Yield: 8 servings
Per serving: 170 calories, 10 g protein, 21 g carbohydrate, 5.5 g fat, 1.7 g saturated fat, 61 mg cholesterol, 1 g fiber, 347 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 28%.
Best Spinach Dip
This is a light rendition of that colorful and tasty party staple, the spinach-dip-stuffed sourdough round. You can make the dip and carve out the sourdough round a day ahead of time. Keep the bread in extra-large resealable bags and the dip, covered, in the refrigerator. Then fill the bread "bowl" with dip just before the party. (If you like, skip the bread bowl and serve with slices of whole-wheat sourdough or French bread, or with whole-grain trackers.)
1/3 cup real mayonnaise
Yield: 1 bread bowl (about 16 appetizer servings, 1/3 cup of dip each).
Per serving: 161 calories, 5.5 g protein, 24 g carbohydrate, 4.5 g fat (0.8 g saturated fat, 1.4 g monounsaturated fat, 2.1 g polyunsaturated fat), 3 mg cholesterol, 2 g fiber, 295 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 26%.
