Whether it is a holiday party, super bowl party or just a fun gathering amongst friends, it is easy to go off the deep end and indulge! I suggest eating something healthy before you leave for the party. Showing up on an empty stomach is never a good idea! Now, I'm not saying that you cannot enjoy yourself. I like to think of the 80/20 rule here. 80 percent of the week is fueling your body with anti-inflammatory, healthful foods and the 20 percent is for occasions like this! You don't want to leave the party feeling deprived of enjoyment, but you also don't want to leave feeling like an overstuffed teddy bear.
I am including my favorite recipe for guacamole and stop by Trader Joes for a little non-alcoholic sparkling juice on your way!
Guacamole: Smash three avocados in a bowl, add the juice of 1 lime, 1/2 c diced red onion, 3 Tbsp chopped cilantro, diced 2 Roma tomatoes, 2 cloves of minced garlic and sea salt to flavor. Pair it with sweet potato chips and chopped veggies and not only do you have a healthy dish, but one that everyone will like!
