One of Christmas’ greatest pleasures is the delicious food! However, many people pay a high price for overeating once the festivities are over. Here are a few suggestions, apart from the usual raw vegetables and dip, to vary the food offered and make it healthier. For a start, why not replace sausages rolled in bacon with melon wrapped with prosciutto? It’s more elegant and much healthier! You could also Àll endive leaves with blue cheese and nuts. Flavoured with some garlic, anis and parsley, these boat-shaped treats are deli- cious and easy to make. Preparing bite-sized appetizers is a great opportunity to explore all sorts of festive combinations.

spinach, curry and raisins... the list goes on. Serving these dips to your guests with pita bread, cut into small pieces and toasted in the oven, is a delicious substitute for the usual bowl of chips. To replace soft drinks, there is a wide range of sparkling mineral waters available in gro- cery stores. For desert, why not be daring and serve fresh fruit kebobs garnished with a small amount of melted dark chocolate? It isn’t a question of eliminating calories, but is rather a question of offering festive com- binations and a variety of fresh foods that are both colourful and tasty!
