Pre-party eats to nix refreshment table stalking

It seems that whenever the holiday party circuit kicks in to high gear, we’re always running from event to event, too busy decking the halls and singing carols to grab a healthy bite to eat. And you know what that means: As soon as we walk through the door, we make a beeline for the refreshment table. Sure, those handfuls of potato chips taste good goin’ down, but there’s way more nutritious noshing to be done!



A quick din idea…

Ask Mom to whip up a big batch of your favorite wintry food that’s packed with protein and filling veggies, like chunky chili or stew, and then freeze in single servings. Reheat a batch before you head out the door and you’ll feel super satisfied. And ya know, with dinner in your belly when ya hit the party, it’s A-OK to go straight to the sugar cookies instead of downing a meal-sized amount of cheese and crackers.


While you’re getting ready…

Before you start getting all dolled up, pull a bag of edamame out of the freezer and follow instructions on the package to steam in the microwave. Pour in a bowl, sprinkle with sea salt or your favorite spice blend and munch away. Sure, it may look like an appetizer, but this finger food is practically pure protein.


Waiting for your ride…

Snag a quick something that won’t muss your outfit or your makeup. Our pick? A protein-packed nutrition bar.  Opt for Rickland Orchard’s Greek Yogurt Bars or something like South Beath Diet’s Protein Fit bars.


Can’t eat before ya go? Pick these at the party:

- Fresh fruit and veggies. Eat these first and have as much as you want. They’ll fill you up without adding any of the bad stuff to your bod.

- Homemade bites that make your mouth water. Don’t worry about what’s healthiest—go for what looks best to you, since that’ll be the most satisfying.

- One rich dessert instead of tons of “eh” ones. Why load up on snickerdoodles that are only so-so when a few of those truffles are all ya want—or need?
