Crab & Cream Cheese Snacks

1-8 oz. tube crescent roll dough
3 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup mayonnaise
3/4 cup cooked crab meat, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
1/8- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt and pepper, to taste

Heat oven to 375°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Unroll dough on work surface. Pinch seams to seal and roll with a rolling pin to create an even rectangle. Cut into 6 rows by 4 rows to make 24 squares.
In small bowl, mix cream cheese, mayo, crab meat, onion, and red pepper. Salt and pepper to taste. Divide crab mixture evenly among the squares, dropping it by spoonfuls that are 1/2 inch from 1 corner of each square. Starting with same corner, fold dough over filling, and tuck end tightly underneath filling; continue rolling to within 1/2 inch of opposite corner. Roll opposite corner of dough over roll; press to seal. Place on cookie sheet. Brush with egg white, if desired.
Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet. Serve warm.

Healthier Sport Watching Snacks

Instead of the usual chips and Pizza here are a few ideas for some snacks that are healthier and tastier to eat while watching the footy. You are more likely to eat less and feel more satisfied.


1.  Mini chicken meat loaves With tomato chutney ( 610kj /145.24 calories). Warm , savory, protein (12g) snack.

2. Sesame oven chips (1 serve) –  A healthier version of hot fries. Share a bowl of these high fibre (4g) chips in front of footy. Don’t over indulge as they are high in calories (810kj/ 192calories)


3. Pop Corn 2 cups, ( 430kj/102.38 calories ) 

4. Spinach and Feta rolls (2) . Look for the ones that are low in calories and salt.


5. Toasted sandwiches Grated reduced fat cheddar cheese, tomato and extra light cream cheese between two slices of grainy bread. Cut into quarters.


6. Pastrami on pumpernickel bread  – with reduced fat mayonnaise (490kj/116.67 calories ).  Cut into bite size and not too many.
