Peas & Carrots, Please Canapes

CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – Food is so much more than just calories in and calories out. Canapes can be a great way to relieve the stress of entertaining and provide a tasty, nutritious snack to your guests! Kara Martin Snyder is the owner of Vital Corps: Holistic Living for the Modern world and she joined us with a recipe!

Do you need this recipe as a downloadable handout? If so, just let me know. I can pull it together in a snap this week. I can also bring nutrition factoids about the ingredients…like how to best ripen and store avocados, etc.

Being that I take a very holistic approach to heath, we can also talk about how stress-free entertaining can help people nourish the relationship and social life areas of the Circle of Life. It’s so much more than just calories in and calories out…
