Prawn Party Food Idea
This time of year can lead to a little bit of laziness – particularly when it comes to food.
Think about it, when you do your weekly shop at the moment, there are definitely more “enticing” looking options on those supermarket shelves in December. Unfortunately not all of them do you much good when it comes to your weight loss or healthier living goals. If you have friends and family visiting at this time of year you may feel that opting for the M&S packaged party snacks are the easier option, but will they be the best option for you and your goals?
Just because it is Christmas doesn’t mean you should neglect ALL of your responsible eating habits. There are of course times when treats trickle in but do your best to be realistic and keep control where possible. No one is perfect, but remember as well that we are all blessed with the freedom to make good choices!
So if you have a party planned this Christmas how about deciding to walk past all of those pre-packed party foods, and make your own instead?
There are so many ideas, from homemade humous with vegetable dippers to Chicken Skewers and even homemade sushi. The possibilities are endless, you just need to be willing to give it a go.
We have decided to share a Prawn Cake recipe with you this week to help give you some party food inspiration for the upcoming festivities. Offer these as a starter to your guests or pop them on a sharing platter for all to dig in as and when they please.
