Ø Host a party yourself: when you host a party you can control the type of food that is there. You can make sure that you have fresh fruit or veggies and dip and other healthy options.
Ø Bring your own snacks: make your own fresh guacamole and bring whole grain tortilla chips! Try this one: http://www.tasteofhome.com/Recipes/Avocado-Dip. When you bring your own dish you can make sure you have something healthy to eat.
Ø Don’t eat the bun! This is my Dads rule. If really necessary, my Dad chooses a burger without a bun. It cuts out unnecessary carbs and calories.
Ø If you are going to drink, stay away from any sugary drink. Bring your own light beer and limit yourself to a few. I know, easier said than done :) Check out this website for great information on low calorie alcohol choices: http://getdrunknotfat.com/.
Ø Get up early for your workout, before the festivities begin!
Enjoy the season!!!!
