Cucumber Feta Rolls

 

Cucumber Feta Rolls. Low carb snacks great for weight loss surgery patients.

Aren’t finger foods cute? I’ve always love appetizers. They allow for just a taste of something fun but very little commitment to choosing it for your entire meal. Not that I normally can’t handle commitment…but perhaps a little when it comes to what food I will fill up on at a meal. It’s gotta be worth it!

I know this is true for weight-loss surgery patients. After a gastric sleeve or gastric bypass, you want to make sure the meal is worth it. For nutrition, for weight-loss and of course, for flavor!

These little cucumber rolls are a fun mixture of flavor and texture, but not meant to be your meal. Pair with with a good protein source or create it as a fun dish to share at a party. Make it your own and use fresh dill or Laughing Cow CheeseĀ® instead of the reduced-fat feta I used in this version.
