Since we’re now firmly into the holiday season, you’re probably gearing up for holiday parties and events to enjoy with your friends and family. While all the food and festivities of Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa and New Year’s are certainly great, they are also opportunities for us to forget about watching our diets and health.
As a party host, you’ve got to make sure there’s enough food, drinks and room for your guests to cut loose. While you’re already accommodating dietary restrictions and preferences, you may as well make the menu as healthy as you can! That way, your guests can feel happy to indulge themselves and maybe leave a little envious of your party hosting prowess.
Check out these healthy holiday recipes that are bound to be party hits!
