Tip No. 6: Be part of the solution
Be sure to practice what you preach at your own party. Limit the number of hors d’oeuvres you serve and keep them as healthful as possible. Choose fresh veggies and sliced fruit instead of cheese and crackers. Serve dinner early and choose a lean entree such as grilled seafood.
Tip: When it comes to dessert, go light and go for a contained amount. When you make a dessert, make one that can only be served in individual portions. If you’re having a party for eight, make sure you only have eight individual desserts. Then there’s no leftover cheesecake to wake up to.
Have a safe and wonderful holiday season.
