Everybody loves going to parties or any other kind of fun celebrations that have amazing food. Most conventional parties have exciting, colourful and sugary foods that are loaded with so many calories thereby making them unhealthy. This is dangerous given the high rise of lifestyle-related diseases that are killing people at a fast rate. If you are planning to throw a party, it would be important to ensure that you choose to serve healthy party food for the good of your guests. Below are some tips that you could use to ensure that the healthy food does not take away all the fun from your party.
Keeping the food simple
Ensure that you keep the food simple as well as colourful and exciting while noting to keep the most loved flavours and ingredients. This will attract people to eat the food as attractive foods will not be avoided by anyone. To achieve this, ensure that you serve strawberries, bananas, avocado, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers and other types of fresh vegetables that your party audience will love to eat.
Having a Make-it-yourself Station
To ensure that your guests get a chance to sample or eat whatever thing you have prepared for them, ensure that you provide them with make-it-yourself stations. This will offer them the freedom to get creative with the type of healthy food combinations they would want to try out. This will not only make your party great but also reduce the wastage of food as your guests will be able to see all the food available and dig in freely on probably all of them.
Another important and helpful way to ensure that your guests enjoy your healthy food at the party is introducing smoothies for them. If your guests include young children, then this will be the right and simple way to make them enjoy the healthy fruits and vegetables you will have served them. You can setup a table or a station somewhere visible and with your blender serve the guests on order. This way they will be able to enjoy their healthy dose of fruits and vegetables by way of smoothies.
Making alternative Drinks
We all know that no party ticks without there being fizzy drinks, well this is not a fact cast in stone as it is possible to forge another way round with alternatives. Fizzy drinks are often sugary and thus unhealthy for your guests. To avoid them, you could think outside the box and come up with other great and delicious alternatives. You could prepare some homemade lemonade and fruit juices. Instead of using sugar to sweeten them, you could as well use honey, maple syrup or agave syrup.
All of the above are some great options of how you can pull off serving healthy food for a party and score big.
