So we are going to a monthly game night with 4 other couples on Saturday, and me and the FI are trying to be good, and eat right. It’s kind of a snack potluck, and usually we bring chips and dip or brownies, but I want to make something to take that is yummy for everyone but healthy and not high in calories. Any ideas or recipes?

you probably should still have some chip and dip for those who want it and then you can have veggies like carrot sticks and celery with a dip too. Or you can have fruit skewers

Try checking Skinnytaste (http://www.skinnytaste.com). She has a “Snack” tab on the right hand side which should help in your search. There are all kinds of cookies, dips, and other goodies that are lightened up a bit. My other random idea—fruit kabobs.
Hope that you find something delicious 🙂

Healthy Roasted Chickpea Snack
Gina’s Weight Watcher Recipes
Servings: 3 servings • Size: 5 oz • Old Points: 2 pts • Points+: 4 pts
Calories: 149.4 • Fat: 3.4 g • Carb: 29.2 g • Fiber: 10.5 g • Protein: 7.5 g
- 15 oz can chickpeas, drained
- olive oil spray
- 1 tsp chili pepper powder (to taste)
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp coriander
- 1 tsp curry powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
Preheat oven to 375°. Drain chickpeas in a colander and let them dry completely. Pat dry with a paper towel if needed.
Arrange on a baking sheet in a single layer and roast for about 30-35 minutes, shaking the pan every ten minutes. All ovens are different so make sure they don’t burn. They will be golden brown and crunchy on the inside when done, not moist.
In a medium bowl, combine all the spices. Remove chickpeas from oven when done and spray with olive oil spray. Immediately toss with spices while hot. Eat at room temperature.
