Perfect Appetizer Platter

img_3944Fall is here and with that come countless Sundays watching football and hosting friends.  What do you do when it becomes too cold to grill outside?  Instead of ordering carb-heavy pizza or sugary chicken wings, try this delicious, protein-rich and diabetic friendly appetizer platter!  It is inspired by ingredients that are common in Sweden that remind us of home.  It will not cause any blood sugar spikes, but is not only good for diabetics, but for anyone trying to maintain a well-balanced and healthy diet.

The hard-boiled eggs, smoked salmon, ham, and fish roe are excellent sources of protein, avocados have great health benefits as well, and are jam-packed with healthy fats, while tomatoes are rich with beneficial nutrients, antioxidants, and vitamins.

All you need is the following:

  • Hard-boiled eggs sliced in halves
  • Avocados sliced lengthwise into bite-sized pieces
  • Smoked salmon pieces rolled and secured with toothpicks
  • Prosciutto or ham rolled and secured with toothpicks
  • Fish roe
  • Tomatoes sliced in quarters
  • Lemon
  • Parsley

Place the ingredients on your favorite serving platter, drizzle with lemon, and finish off with some parsley.  Serve with some whole wheat crackers and voila!

This recipe is easy to prepare and requires no actual cooking, apart from boiling a few eggs ?
