Healthy Holiday Bites

The holidays are literally the worse times to attempt to be healthy or eat right for most people.  Between visiting family, friends and having potlucks at work your waistline may not thank you come the new year.  There are somethings you can count on around holidays..cookies, cookies and more cookies.  Here are two recipes that won't tip the scales.  I took them with me on Sunday to our little Holiday kick off and they were a hit. First up..
Roasted Grapes
You will need: 1 lb purple grapes, salt pepper and veg. oil
Preheat oven to 450
Place grapes onto baking pan, drizzle with oil and sprinkle salt ad pepper on top
Pop in the oven fr 12-15 min
They are yummy sweet with just a touch of salty!

Next up..
Christmas Zucchini Bites
You will need: 3 medium zucchini, blue cheese crumbles, Parmesan cheese, package of cherry tomatoes, pinch of pepper and basil
Preheat oven to 400
Slice zucchini in 3/4 in thick pieces, scoop out the middle, leaving the bottom intact
Stuff blue cheese crumbles in each piece, top with a small slice of tomato
Mix Parmesan cheese (about 1/2c), basil and pepper together in bowl
Sprinkle on top!
Pop in the oven for 5-7 min, until cheese is melted..
Enjoy this Red, White and Green Christmas bite!
Happy Cooking!
Love, T
