If you want to lose weight and look like the women on the Red Carpet, try these tasty appetizers from the Carb Lovers Diet Cookbook.
Fresh Mozzarella, Basil and Chicken Sausage PizzaThis tasty pizza boasts a whole wheat crust and is topped with fresh tomato and basil, mozzarella, and chicken sausage. Serve small wedges as appetizers or larger pieces for a dinner main dish.
Ham and Cheddar Potato SkinsWe took this traditionally high-fat appetizer and gave it a makeover using reduced-fat sour cream, a reduced amount of cheese, and smaller potatoes to keep these bites portion-controlled.
Layered Spicy Black Bean and Cheddar DipThis hearty layered bean dip is always a bit hit at parties, but is also high in fiber and low in fat.
Mini Corn and Feta MuffinsThese mini cornmeal muffins are flavored with feta cheese and corn kernels and great for snacking or serving with soup or chili.
Smoky Oven-Baked Potato ChipsPotato chips are no longer forbidden when you’re trying to lose weight. These crisp and tasty chips are made from thin slices of russet potato that are tossed in a small amount of oil and baked.
Roasted Red Pepper and Zucchini SpreadZesty and bold, this richly textured pepper spread is fabulous for parties, and also helps jazz up sandwiches and wraps.
Mini Mediterranean PizzaMake individual pizzas by topping whole wheat pita rounds with arugula, olives, roasted peppers and feta cheese.
Pizza with Proscuitto, Tomatoes, and Parmesan CheeseThis prosciutto-and-cheese-topped pizza on a whole wheat crust is a great choice for either a party appetizer or a main dish. Cut into 16 slices for appetizer servings.
