Have a Plant: Fruits & Veggies for Better Health

When you’re entertaining – or being entertained – it’s so easy to check those good habits at the door. But with a little creativity, your healthy treats will be the talk of the town!


Fabulous fondue:
Add apples, cauliflower and carrots to your cheese fondue basket, and pineapple, mango, and bananas to your chocolate fondue dipping platter.


Quirky quesadillas: For a new taste on this traditional dish, use different cheeses such as Brie or Gouda and add apples and pears for a sweet twist. For a seasonal flavor, use mushrooms or pumpkins. These quick and easy finger foods are great for parties!


Issue an Apple Challenge:
On the traditional cheese and fruit plate, offer samples from 3 or 4 different apple varieties and encourage guests to try each one.


Fire up the grill:
After dinner, grill up peaches, pineapple or kiwi for a tasty fruit dessert.


Goodie bags:
Prepare goodie bags of exotic dried fruit for guests to take home and try. Tie with a ribbon and small tag describing the fruit. These healthy goodie bags will be a lovely reminder of your event.
