Hiya

I've been around a while, but have been lurking. Over the holidays my friends and I restarted our DnD group, and its our turn to host. Any ideas for snacks? I'm doing low carb, but others are doing P90X and another is WW. I'd serve plenty of veggies, but I want the full fat dip and others are staying away from fat. help?

What about a homemade hummus? Lower in calories than pre-made stuff, plus lots of fiber and other nutrients...

“Hummus is made from garbanzo beans, which are high in protein and fiber. Adding sun-dried tomatoes increases your intake of vegetables and enhances the flavor of the hummus. In a food processor, place one can of salt-free garbanzo beans, 1/3 cup of plain nonfat yogurt, 2 tbsp. of tahini, and three peeled cloves of garlic. Process until very smooth. Add 1/4 cup of sun-dried tomatoes not packed in oil, 1 tsp. of oregano and 2 tsp. of fresh lemon juice. Blend again and season with sea salt and course black pepper.“

1 can chick peas (keep about ahlf the sauce)
2 tablespoons tahini

1-3 lemons juiced depends on how sour they are and how you like it.
2 crushed cloves of garlic
blend and voila!

Also I have been doing more nuts and oriental rice cracker mixes because they are backed have wasabi so a lot of flavor and tend to slow you down and there are peas in there so some greens Smile It fulfils table top gaming snack food needs but is a little better for you Wink Popcorn is an old fav and the microwave ones have gotten more healthy recently but stove top or air popped is of course healthier.

I just tried hummus for the 1st time last night. This is going to be my goto for gaming. Hummus & Bell Pepper sticks or Celery.
