Healthy Catering Ideas in Toronto
With summer literally here, having an outdoor party with healthy food is the best way to bring in the season! It is also an easy way to put together a party efficiently and sure to be a fun one. It is important to make sure all of your guests enjoy the atmosphere and the food, and making the food healthy all around is a sure way to keep everyone happy! Whether it’s for a client/employee appreciation lunch, or a big birthday celebration, here are some healthy catering ideas in Toronto to help in the planning process!
A Colorful Salad Bar
A great healthy catering idea in Toronto is a salad bar filled with an array of colour in vegetables and fruits. The summer season is your best time to pick a rainbow of colours and assortments. It’s the time for everyone to embrace both delicious and healthy food, made up of lots of greens and fresh veggies. Why not do a salad bar as a meal for your guests and let them choose what healthy salad items they would like to stack on their plates. At Smokin Bones, there is a large selection of salads available that are both protein-rich and veggie filled. Choose from organic mixed field greens, a fresh spinach salad, a three-bean salad, homemade potato salad or your classic Caesar or Greek salad. There is nothing like chilled, refreshing and healthy options to start off your catered corporate picnic or birthday party!
Tasty Healthy Appetizers
At Smokin Bones, there are tons of healthy options to choose from when thinking about appetizers. Appetizers or teasers can sometimes be super unhealthy and it can leave your guests feeling crappy even before they eat their mains. Try some healthy alternatives such as fresh Tuna Ceviche on blue cornbread, Moroccan Salmon served chilled with fennel and cumin, Vegetable rice paper wraps with daikon radish and Nappa cabbage drizzled with ginger black bean sauce, to name a few! Some may go for the appetizers as their main meal, as all are healthy, filling and taste amazing!
Try a Grilled Vegetable Platter
Another healthy catering idea is a grilled vegetable platter. Vegetables get even tastier when marinated and grilled on the barbeque. The best to grill is zucchini, red onion, asparagus, bell peppers, mushrooms, carrots, artichokes and hot peppers. Opt for Olive oil as a delicious and healthy dressing.
Nourishing & Wholesome Sandwich Options
If tasty and healthy is on your mind, don’t order deli. Do a roasted vegetable, goat cheese, red pepper hummus with tomato and lettuce wrap and/or grilled sandwich. Another healthy favorite is a grilled chicken, pepper, and Thai sweet chili sandwich. No matter what, a nourishing sandwich will go great with your healthy salad bar, wholesome appetizers, and tasty grilled vegetables for any occasion or gathering.
All of these are super healthy options to enjoy with friends, fellow co-workers or family this summer, and you may even trim a pound off in the process! Happy planning!
