What can I eat at holiday parties if I am a vegetarian?

Vandana  R. Sheth
Nutrition & Dietetics
At holiday parties there are usually plenty of vegetarian choices.  Depending upon if you are a vegan or if you eat dairy/eggs...your choices would vary.  Enjoy appetizers such as crudites, pita+hummus, chips+salsa/guacamole, cheese+crackers.  For the main course, focus on all of the side dishes such as green beans, sweet potatoes, load up on the green salad and add beans, nuts, seeds to enhance the protein.  Consider offering to bring a vegetarian entree such as a vegetarian pasta dish.  For dessert, focus on fruits, (sorbet/ice cream) depending upon if you are vegan.  You could also offer to bring a vegetarian dessert to share.
