Tips for Hosting a Healthy Party

 

Do you love to entertain as much as I do? When I'm hosting a gathering, I spend weeks thinking of what appetizers, dishes, and drinks I'll serve and how I'll display everything. Whether you entertain guests just once in awhile or all year long, you likely want to make the get togethers memorable and healthy without breaking the bank. What do you want guests to notice the most? A spread of colorful appetizers (like bite-size endive boats) and a homemade condiments bar are good places to start. As a dietitian who loves to cook for friends, I have a few tips for creating great-tasting menus with a nutritious twist. Ready to take your soirée to the next level? Here are ideas to get your creative juices flowing!
