Ok, folks! The Halloween parties are in full swing for us, so I’m guessing they are for you too! One of the tips I suggest to my clients when going to parties is to offer to take something healthy that you know you can/should eat. I mean, let’s be honest. When we show up to parties there is always a lot of fun food that is loaded with fats and or sugars (admittedly they are usually way yummy, but not good for the belly/hips/thighs . . . ya know!?). So, I always like to play it safe by taking something healthy that I know I can eat.
A veggie tray is alway a good solution. However, it can be BORING. Well, it doesn’t have to be boring for Halloween! I found this fun way to amp up the fun with a typical veggie tray. I took this to a family Halloween pot-luck party last weekend and it was eaten up in minutes. There was another large veggie tray there too, but it had hardly been touched. I’m still kind of sitting here amazed that the skeleton trick won over the kiddos and got them to eat their veggies. They seriously ate it up (literally and figuratively).
I made the protein-packed dip from cottage cheese. If you haven’t made the Fit Ranch Dip/Dressing yet, you must! (You will also deceive your little and big people with this dip.)
Hopefully this gives you a fun idea on how to fill up your belly with veggies instead of Halloween candy. Have fun at all your parties and be safe!
