A summer picnic is a great way to entertain and see friends and family. But all too often we end our day in the sun way to full and wondering if we ate food that is good for us. But it doesn't need to be that way. Next time you pack for a picnic - think tasty AND healthful. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
A veggie platter with the latest in season veggies and a zesty vinaigrette based dip can be a great way to start the picnic. Build your own or you can pick up a veggie platter at your local health food grocery mart - my favorite is Whole Foods.
For dessert - how about a fruit platter...and for those with a sweet tooth bring a chocolate, caramel dipping sauce or raw wild honey (my preference).
Here is a recipe website for the great types of food I enjoy. These dishes are healthful and make you feel good.
