Default Healthy appetizer for a party??

So I have been googling for an hour and not too impressed so far. My neighbors and are having a 'hurricane party', aka getting together with food, drinks, and candles so we all don't have to sit at home alone when the power goes out!

I want to bring a healthy appetizer. I am trying to do something fun instead of my usual hummus and veggies (which I will probably bring as well! ).
The host is pregnant - so I am trying to stay away from any foods that are off limits for her. Suggestions??

Depending on her tastes and eating habits, turkey wrapped jalapeno poppers might not be so bad. If you core them very well that gets rid of most of the spicy stuff. I made these the other day and it didn't even register as hot on my tongue.

(Side note: I ate everything throughout my pregnancy with the exception of bottom feeder fish, sushi, etc. The known "dangerous" culprits. I did not limit my palette to exclude curry, hot peppers, onions, etc. Just depends on the preggo lady!)

At the last party I catered, I did stuffed mushrooms. I have a recipe at home, but they were turkey sausage stuffed - similar to This Recipe but without the cheese.

I second stuffed shrooms - they have sort of fallen by the wayside. I use chopped shrimp, egg white and cheese (soft goat with a hit of parmesan is nice).

A big bowl of edamame in the pod keeps hands and mouths occupied, is trendy, and provides protein.

Do popcorn in different flavors omitting butter or oil overload. Comfort food, delicious, filling, and low in calories.

You could do a lower fat soft cheese like Boursin to spread on apple slices and even cantaloupe thin slices.

A bowl of roasted pistachios or peanuts - in the shell
