The holidays are here, and if you’re like me, the social calendar is F-U-L-L. This article shares great ways to make a party healthier any time of year. Thanks, Fit4me!
It’s that season! Holiday parties are starting to fill up our schedules.
If you are hosting an event this year, then give your guests lots of healthy options.
Offer low calorie or no calorie drinks in addition to your typical wine and punch options. Some good choices are:
- Unsweetened Tea
- Club Soda
- Light Beer and Wine Spritzers
Fruits and Veggies
At least 50% of your food options should be fruits and vegetables.
For fruits, you can make fresh fruit salads or fruit trays.
Fresh vegetables, such as baby carrot sticks, broccoli, cauliflower, celery and sugar snap peas, are easy and healthy options. You can serve them raw with hummus and fresh salsa as a healthy dipping side.
If you are hosting a dinner, party, offer a salad and steamed or roasted vegetables as side dishes instead of cream based casseroles and potato or pasta-based sides.
