If you’re looking for a snack to put on the table in front of your guests for your big game get-together, look no further than these delicious kale chips. Crispiest when fresh, we would definitely recommend making them right before the party for superior crunch. The flavor comes from a cashew paste that imparts a cheese-powderesque eating experience (orange fingers included, courtesy of yummy red pepper), but you’ll feel good about what your snack is bringing to the field.

We’ve pulled a few healthy, yummy recipes from a few different cultures from our database, just to give you some ideas to start.

During December, we’re looking at world peace through food. Morocco, situated in North Africa and the home of Casablanca, is a wonderful culture to consider through food. Moroccan cuisine tends to be lush with spices, some of which are expensive or tricky to find in some places, but this delicious curried salad (one of our recipe editor’s favorites!) offers an easy way to give Moroccan cuisine a try with your family.
