Yes, it's that time of year again; work parties, long lunches, family gatherings, friends popping round etc as everyone enjoys the atmosphere that is the lead up to Christmas. But along with this comes… the bloating, the tightened waistband, the excess pounds sneaking on our midriffs. It's always the same; as much as we try and eat healthily at meal times, it's the snacking, the party foods that does it every time.
We all know the best options - chopped veg and pieces of fruit dipped in a healthy hummus, but despite our best intentions we just can't resist the chicken fingers, the meatballs, the chocolates… or can we…?
To save you the hard work I've put together an awesome list of my favourite healthy finger foods; some are my own creations, but most I've collected from around the web. All are delicious and for the most part healthy.
For extra tips on all aspects of staying healthy at Christmas see my older post here - now go out and enjoy everything the season has to offer :-)
