One of the most difficult parts of dieting is giving up high calorie snacks. But a healthy eating plan can – and should – include snacks. If you have a sweet tooth, berries or other fresh fruit can be satisfying. But if you like savory foods, snacking can be a little more challenging. Many savory foods are high in salt, starch and fat.
This healthy recipe can be prepared as a side dish, as an appetizer to be served at parties, or you can make a batch to keep for snacking.
