And the Nominees for Best Healthy Appetizer are…

February 24, 2012

My all time favorite awards show of the season is on this weekend: The 84th Academy Awards. What’s not to love about the Oscars? From the dresses on the red carpet, right down to the Best Picture award, I’m hooked.

If you’re anything like me you’ve been thinking, not only about how much you want War Horse to win Best Picture (is there a best movie of all time award?!), but also about what glitzy, star-worthy appetizers you will be serving your friends during your annual Oscar watching party.

Here are a few healthy, Best Picture-themed snack options that I know I’ll be whipping up this Sunday!

Start the evening with some tropical Carrot Punch and imagine that you are on the beaches of Hawaii with George Clooney in The Descendants.

Next, serve a salad that even the four-legged star of War Horse, would enjoy: Radish, Celery and Apple Salad

Think Money Ball should win Best Picture? Maybe this Stove Top Popcorn with Virgin Coconut Oil will bring you some good luck!

If your guests loved the film The Help, serve a southern favorite: Okra and Tomatoes.

Keep it classy and Parisian with these Stuffed Mushrooms, a la Midnight in Paris.

Then stay in Paris with Hugo to enjoy some Baked Sweet Potato French Fries!

Do you want The Tree of Life to win? Serve a classic 1950’s sweet snack, Sesame Honey Treats.

Finally, in honor of Extremely Loud, Incredibly Close, end the night with a healthy version New York’s favorite treat: Raw Vegan Cheesecake.

Enjoy the 84th Annual Oscar Academy Awards and may the best film win!
