Holiday foods are typically rich, caloric and zap us of our energy making us especially vulnerable to illness. Try hosting a healthy holiday party this season. You’ll be surprised as to how many of your guests will attend and extend compliments on this refreshing holiday twist. Create a healthy menu for the party, a fun game for engagement and a mocktails bar. Your guests will leave feeling happier and healthier than their typical meat, potato and eggnog fest. Here’s a few of my favorite ideas:
GOAT CHEESE PESTO WITH VEGGIES AND SOURDOUGH SLICES
MACADAMIA CRUSTED WILD SALMON
HO HO HO-JITOS
HEALTHY GRAB BAG EXCHANGE GAME
Ask each guest to bring a healthy gift to exchange with another guest at the grab bag. When someone receives their gift, have them explain why they choose it and ask them to share one of their favorite healthy holiday tips/
Mocktail Cheers to a healthier way to celebrate. With a healthy gift in tote, a deliciously, light meal in their belly and new ideas for staying healthier, you may find your guests leaving merrier than ever.
