Friday Findings: Food Bars

Every couple of weeks or so, I share what I’ve gathered and gleaned from around the internet.

This Friday’s focus is: Food Bars!

I love the ease of self-serve and the pretty rows of little bowls, plates, and food!

With allergy and food issues becoming more common, food bars often give these women options that might not otherwise have.

Breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert – I’ve got ya’ covered! Let’s take a look!

Individual Fruit Pizza Bar – keep costs low by choosing fruit that’s in season.

DIY Smores Bar - Be sure to click over to see how they set up the roasting station.
Do me a favor and get permission for open flames – okay?

Chili-Bar

A Chili Bar – what a great lunch/dinner idea for your ladies!
Did you know you can cook baked potatoes in a crock pot (wash, dry, wrap in foil, 4 hours on high)?
I like the fries and hotdogs as options too.
Or keep it simple and just go with chili and toppings. Maybe a mild, spicy, white, and vegetarian chili…

 I’ll admit, I don’t know how to make crepes and this Crepe Bar
may be more work that someone would want to take on, but this is SO elegant!!

Early morning events have been a big hit with our ladies.

Another great lunch or dinner idea – a Baked Potato Bar.
Love that this could be vegetarian and allergy friendly.
Store pre-baked potatoes in coolers to keep them warm.

Whether you offer the Trail Mix Bar as a snack during a retreat or conference or make this their favor,
I love that women can customize their mix to include their favorites!

Yogurt Bar

We had a mini-version of this Yogurt Bar at our last conference.
We served vanilla yogurt with granola and thawed frozen fruit.
Our GSF store has some smaller bowls that were perfect – not too big, not too small.
