All that food is likely to leave you with some thirsty guest, so don't forget the beverages when it comes to healthy party choices ...
No. 1: Pour some low-cal drinks
Light beer is definitely a top seller, so be sure to grab plenty.
If liquor is your choice, don't use a lot of juice, syrup or mixer. Make it low-cal and then be sure to only make it a splash of orange juice, cranberry juice or whatever is fancied. Don't forget that the liquor can also be served on the rocks.
The standard 1.5 ounce serving of 80-proof alcohol has 96 calories. And if you are a wine drinker, a glass usually contains 125 to 150 calories. Beer can range from 64 to 198 calories per 12 ounces.
So as you prepare to cheer on your favorite Super Bowl team, leave your party-goers with only good memories of a great time instead of a few pounds.
Help them stay on track if they have resolved to lose weight by preparing your own pizza and sandwiches with healthier ingredients. Serve fruit and only use a splash of juice or serve cocktails on the rocks.
