Christmas is a time for family and friends, but it’s also a time for overeating on some pretty unhealthy food choices. Why not give your Christmas menu a spin this year with fun and healthy choices like these:
Fruity Christmas Tree
- Cut off one side of an apple so you have a flat surfaceCut off one side of an apple so you have a flat surface
- Remove the apple core
- Put the flat side of the apple onto a plate and put a carrot into the hole where you cut out the core. This will be the base of your tree.
- Cover the apple and carrot with toothpicks
- Cut up your fav fruits and secure them to the toothpicks. Use as many as needed to achieve the desired shape.
- This photo used?cantaloupe as a star, but any firm fruit would work. Try pineapple.
* This also works with a cone shaped?styrofoam cone as your base. Found at any arts and crafts store.
- Keeping the cheese in their original wrappers, draw on the face and buttons with a marker
- Cut out black top hats from construction paper. Attach onto cheese using your fav paper glue
- Tie a ribbon of your choice around the neck for their little scarves
- Cut pita into triangular pieces (like a pizza)?
- Use a piece of a pretzel stick as the tree trunk
- Cover pita with your fav green colored spread. This pic is using avocado hummus. Guacamole works great too.
- Use small pieces of red bell pepper for garland
Santa’s Grape Helpers
- Put a toothpick though the tops of large green grapes
- Slice a banana and put a slice onto each toothpick
- Cut the leaves off the top of strawberries so you have a flat edge to them. Add them on top of the banana slices
- Top it off with a mini marshmellow
