With so many people with food intolerance or allergies and others following different diets, I tend to panic when it comes time to host guests that keep away from certain foods. This time, instead of panicking, I decided that I'd just put out some fruit and veggies for us to nibble on rather than preparing a full meal.
I filled one bowl with strawberries, grapes and pineapple chunks. The other bowl had cucumber slices, celery sticks and baby carrots. I opened a tub of Roasted Red Pepper Hummus for the veggies and whipped up a batch of Chocolate Hummus for the fruit. I also set out a bowl of mini pretzels to dip in the Chocolate Hummus! mmm! So good!
I have forgotten how much I enjoy snacking on sweet fruits and crunchy veggies throughout the day. These days I tend to snack on a lot of junk food. Something that I really need change.
Soon, the farmers' markets in our area will be opening. I'm looking forward to picking up some super-fresh produce to snack on each week!
