Looking to WOW your holiday guests?? Nothing screams party 🎉 like a charcuterie board. Am I right?! They look all fancy & fun (like you’ve spent hours on them) yet they’re actually super simple to put together.
Problem is…they’re mainly meats & cheeses. Come on, party people… we can do better than that! So, I created the ultimate FLEXITARIAN CHARCUTERIE BOARD CHECKLIST to help you easily add more plants to your party boards!
What makes a charcuterie board FLEXITARIAN?
You know it’s a flex board when…
✨ The ratio is mostly plants, w/ just a little bit of the usual meats & cheeses.
✨ You see a bunch of colorful fruits & veggies.
Imagine if a veggie board & a charcuterie board had a baby… that’s a FLEX BOARD.😉
Why make a FLEXITARIAN charcuterie board?
Since a FLEX BOARD is primary made of COLORFUL plants 🌱 your friends/family/party guests will easily hit their daily quota of superfoods & you can feel good knowing you served up energizing nutrients to their cells.💥
Make a Flexitarian Charcuterie Board. Here’s how:
Step 1. Pick foods from each category on the checklist. Use the amounts as a general guide & you’ll notice I chose higher FLEX 💪 amounts for veggies and fruits.
Step 2. Arrange the foods on a cutting board or party platter. And that’s it!
PRO TIP: Make 2 or 3 piles of each ingredient around the board. This adds more artistic flare than having just 1 pile of the ingredient.
