Hosting Healthy Dinner

Ok, so we all love a great party and we all also know that,at the centre of every great party, is great food. I mean, if the food wasn’t good, did you even have fun?

 

I had a client who loved to host and attend dinners and she asked me, a bit saddened one day, how she was going to host her dinners with healthy food, since people didn’t want to eat her mashed potatoes and vegetables all night long.

I understood her pain as I love to have friends around too, so I decided to make this post as a guide for her and for all of you who love a good party too.

Healthy food isn’t all mash and sandwiches, so I’ll share a few recipes from around the web and how to incorporate them into your dinners.

Here you go ladies, enjoy!!

1) Salads: contrary to what you think, salads are actually elegant and can make a great side dish for your guests. Try to include a salad that is finely chopped, has great elements, like roast chicken, basil and a tasty dressing cream, but don’t mix in the cream, let your guests do that.

Here is a link for a recipe you can try at home https://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/elegant-tossed-salad/5d0af97d-8eb0-452f-8999-572f4538c30b

 

2) Soups: soups are as versatile and elegant as meals come. You can do healthy cabbage soup or other chicken and vegetable options. A guide here though is to add bite sized elements into the soup that allow chewing and reduce slurping.

3) Bread; I know someone is already screaming that it’s unhealthy but calm down 😊😊. You can have the healthy kind perhaps made from oatmeal flour or other such sources.

4) Desserts; everyone loves a good dessert, so wow your guests with healthy dark chocolates and home made fudge that makes everyone want some to take home.
