When you're hitting a super bowl party this year, there are several ways you can ditch the guilt and feel amazing.
1. Don't go hungry. Have a small salad at home before you leave for the party, and be sure to stay hydrated throughout the day. Having some healthy, whole foods in your belly when you arrive at the party will keep you from overeating once you get there.
2. When you do make a plate for yourself, fill half of the plate with something healthy. There's almost always a veggie tray at parties, which is a great option for your healthy side of the plate. If possible, add your dessert to this plate, too. Adding dessert to your main plate will drastically cut down on the amount, as opposed to having an entirely new plate for dessert after your main dish.
3. If at all possible, try to sit down when you eat. When you attempt to eat standing up while mingling, you can end up mindlessly eating more than you think.
We hope you have a great time at your super bowl party this year!
Health and happiness,
