Plate of vegetables
The healthiest snack. “Who do you want to cheat! Do you really think people will happily eat carrot sticks? We think so. Carrot sticks, celery, bell peppers, cucumbers and even fresh cauliflower. It will definitely be a pleasure if served with a few sauces. For example, hummus, pesto, or yoghurt (with garlic and herbs).
It's like pizza, only instead of the usual dough - cauliflower, a source of many vitamins and minerals. To make such a pizza, you need nothing at all: grind the forks of cauliflower in a blender to a state of small crumbs, squeeze well, add one egg and a couple of tablespoons of barley or whole wheat flour. Form a pizza sheet, brush with sauce, add additives of your choice and bake at high temperature for 10-15 minutes.
Kale is one of the healthiest foods to be considered superfoods. It contains a lot of iron, calcium, vitamins C, A, B6. Previously, kale was more exotic for us - they grew it quite a bit, and what was brought in took on a not very appetizing look during the journey. Fortunately, this question was closed by Belaya Dacha, and now the kale is easy to buy in a regular supermarket. Feeding your guests a healthy green smoothie from a kale would be, perhaps, too extravagant step, so we suggest making it a treat that is more understandable for the gathering format - chips. Jamie Oliver has an easy recipe for kale chips with salt and cinnamon.
Chickpeas contain a lot of protein and a whole scattering of B vitamins. Usually, chickpeas are found in the form of hummus, but there is an option for another tasty snack. Open a jar of ready-made chickpeas (or soak overnight and cook dry), drain the water, in a large bowl, combine the peas with olive oil, season with salt, paprika, dry chili and other spices of your choice. To turn the chickpeas into crispy balls, place them on a baking sheet and bake at maximum temperature (or grill) for 10 minutes.
Ice cream is an excellent and beloved dessert by many. We offer a sugar free and low fat version. In a blender bowl, mix a glass of natural yogurt without additives, a couple of tablespoons of honey, and a handful of your favorite frozen berries. Pour into six ice cream tins and the treat is ready in four to six hours.
The original recipe requires mountains of butter and sugar. Here's our lite version. Peel and cut four apples into four servings, bake until semi-soft. Add half a cup of thawed raspberries, sprinkle with muesli (half a cup is enough) or a homemade mixture of cereals, nuts and dried fruit. Bake for another 10 minutes.
Classic hummus is also a healthy dish. But here's a recipe for those looking for a lower-calorie, lower-fat version. It is prepared from one glass of green peas (defrost and boil for three to five minutes, canning will not work), several sprigs of parsley, a tablespoon of olive oil, a teaspoon of lemon juice, a clove of garlic and a pinch of salt. Put everything in a blender and grind until smooth. Serve with vegetables, green salad or whole grain bread.>
