This holiday party lay out some healthy choices for your guests.
People who watch what they eat dread holiday parties because they know there is going to be a buffet of unhealthy foods when they arrive at the party. Giving your guests a healthy choice, will help everyone have a better time.
Here are some great suggestions of what to add to make your holiday party friendlier for those looking to eat healthy.
Celery and peanut butter are a great holiday treat. Cut the celery into bite sized pieces, so that people do not have trouble eating them.
The peanut butter is high in calories, but is healthy and delicious in moderation.
Carrots are sneaky in that they actually have a lot of sugar in them. They will give your guests a boost of energy, while staying healthy at the same time.
Baby carrots are fun and easy, and widely available in all supermarkets pre-peeled and ready to serve.
Oranges are delicious, but you want to prepare them last minute because they wilt fast. Peeling the orange slices to leave them in their internal skin will help them last a little longer.
Grapes are the ultimate finger food. They are perfectly sized, and easy to prepare. Make sure to buy seedless grapes.
Pickles are low in calories, but high in salt. They are not a friend to all dieters, as they usually cause people to gain a lot of water weight.
I love pickles, and if I have to undo my night with pickles vs. mini sausages, pickles are always the better choice. I know it is more salt than I should have, but at least I am not eating all of the calories, and bad fat found in other finger foods.
Melon is great and you can cut it into little squares and serve it on toothpicks. You can add a grape on top which makes a fun festive holiday food anyone can enjoy.
Cherry tomatoes can get expensive, and they can squirt if you eat them the wrong way. They are delicious and colorful, so they are still a good choice for healthy finger food.
