A spinach quiche is also a healthier choice- quiche is very versatile and you can whip your own recipe as you please.
Sashimi and Sushi: Healthy Japanese Treats

Make thin slices of this bread and brush it with extra virgin olive oil then toast it to perfection. Bruschetta is charming and satisfying appetizer that will surely impress your guests.

Who can go wrong with this favorite appetizer that would surely satisfy taste while filling your guests. Shrimps are a good source of protein and are very low in calories.
