Healthy Holiday Party Recipes

‘Tis the Season for parties, parties, and more parties!

People are so busy with parties this time of year that it seems the weekends are busier than ever.  Work parties, holiday parties, cookie swaps, ornament exchanges and the list goes on.

What are you making to take to these parties?  Most of them will have food and for many of them, you will be taking food to eat.

Every year I scour the internet to look for a recipe that I can take that will be Weight Watchers friendly but still taste delicious!

I have come up with some holiday party recipes that I think you will like.  Let’s start with yummy appetizers.  What would a party be without tables full of cheesy, fatty apps!?!  I think you will find these appetizers alternatives just as yummy without the guilt!

    Has anyone tried The Fat Loss Factor? I’ve heard good things. I saw it at http://www.thefatlosefactor.com It has a good offer. And looks like a good recipe book. Any thoughts?
