With the holiday season approaching, it can be hard to resist the endless treats and indulgences at parties and gatherings. No one wants to toss all their healthy habits out the door so we came up with a way to stay on track with these 5 tips to stay healthy at holiday parties.
Don’t show up hungry
If you arrive at a party already famished, it’ll be that much harder to stick to your healthy habits. Make sure to have a light, healthy, plant-based meal before you leave the house.
Load up on veggies
There may be tons of rich items to choose from, but most parties will have a veggie plate. Eat plenty of veggies with your more indulgent treats and you’ll help slow down your intake of heavier foods.
Drink plenty of water
Whether you’re drinking alcohol or juice, make sure you’re staying hydrated with water. Staying hydrated helps manage your appetite and also helps balance high sodium party snacks.
Cover your nutrient bases
If you expect to be eating a lot of meals at parties, it can be hard to make sure you’re getting all the nutrients you need. Mix Amazing Grass with water or juice for a powerful blend of nutritious greens, phytonutrient-packed fruits, veggies and cereal grasses, digestive enzymes and probiotics.
Bring a healthy dish
If you don’t expect to have a lot of healthy choices at your next party, bring a healthy option with you. Try plant-based recipes like a hearty cabbage salad, homemade kale chips, or fruit salad.
