For most of us, this weekend will consist of sugar, sodium, alcohol and empty calories. But don’t fret!
Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind.
Set a drink limit: Try for no more than 2 alcoholic drinks throughout the night. Drink slowly and enjoy it. Mix with soda water, lemon/ lime juice or a splash of fresh fruit juice. Also, make sure to have a bottle of water available at all times to prevent dehydration and a morning hangover.
Add some color to the table: You know how addicting the chip bowl can be, so if you are attending a party, don’t be afraid to bring a vegetable or fruit platter as a healthier option. People WILL eat it, guaranteed!
Don’t arrive hungry: Have a snack before you head out for the night. A bowl of vegetable soup, a small tuna sandwich, vegetable omelet or Greek yogurt with an apple will help you from feeling ravenous when you spot the snack table.
Use smaller plates: You’ve heard this a thousand times, but it’s true! Instead of piling a large plate with every option available, choose a smaller plate to help stay in control. Or, share a large plate with a friend and have a taste of everything. But make good choices! Don’t just eat it because it’s there.
That veggie platter will come in handy to help curb your appetite throughout the night.
Have a safe and happy HalloWeekend!!
