More Healthy Hints

Rounding out your spread with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables is a good way to give your taste buds something crunchy and low-calorie to enjoy. If you’re adding chips or crackers, look for a multi-grain product, and remember to read nutrition labels before you throw an item into your cart! 

Remember to stay hydrated with non-calorie beverages, like water or unsweetened iced tea. If you’re enjoying an alcoholic beverage or brew, keep in mind that these contribute calories and reduce both your blood sugar and your inhibitions. Meaning, you might find yourself tempted to snack more.
