What are indulgent but healthy buffet menu items?


Question from Franetic: What's a seemingly indulgent but nutritionally sound buffet menu for a cocktail party? What would YOU serve at such an event?
Answers - Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D. I always take to every buffet a black bean salad. The recipe is on my website. I always have some hummus with whole wheat bread and a variety of different types, different flavors of hummus. Fresh fruits and vegetables. I let people use either guacamole or hummus as a dip. Carrot bread, cranberry bread or something like that that's made with whole grain. I'd add flax seeds to a cranberry recipe, things like that. I'd take typical holiday foods and make them healthier by adding different healthy ingredients. That's a good start; I'm sure there are more.
