Hosting, especially during the holidays, can be stressful enough without trying to be less processed. Here’s 10 foods to help your become a whole holiday hostess this season.
What comes to mind for food and drink when you think of hosting at your home? Does it look similar to this?
Soda, bottled juice of some sort, donut holes, muffins, cakes or cake pops, fruits and veggies with a ranch dip, cheese/crackers, brownies, candy, sweet tea and a soup or salad thrown in for good measure and to take up counter space?
It doesn’t have to be this way! Whole foods and healthier alternatives are simple and require little to no prep time.
Try some of these to bring a little WHOLEness to your next event.
- Fruit and veggie cups with Annie’s Organic Dressing to use as a dip. You can even go one step further and use cute mugs to cut down on costs.
- Water, coconut water, organic coffee with organic cane sugar and almond milk
- Wheat grass shots with orange wedges (you never know,SOMEONE may want to venture out and try one?!)
- Chia seeds to add to water if guests would like to try them. They’re a nutty flavor and form a gel when added to a liquid.
- Kind bars with chocolate to add a little sweetness and that bit of indulgence
- Chocolate squares
- Baked lentil chips with My Fit Foods Salsa (LOVE,LOVE, LOVE this stuff)
- Avocado egg salad with gluten-free crackers
- My Fit Foods muffins
- Pomegranate, Orange and Jicama Salad
