For most people trying to lead a healthier lifestyle but still have a fun time are two things that just don’t go together. While everyone is indulging when you want to reign things in navigating the buffet table at a party may seem like a struggle.   There are no issues with enjoying yourself, however for the health conscious among you there are some really simple tricks that mean you can still be the life and soul of the party and keep your shining halo in tact, especially when you’re the host.

Non-Alcoholic Cocktails

Cocktails are not known for being the healthiest drinks at a party due to their high levels of hidden sugars. Every now and then, it’s nice to have something non-alcoholic and virgin cocktails are a great alternative to offer at parties.   Use fresh fruits to cut the calories and the sugar to help promote a healthy lifestyle at your party.

Keep The Music Pumping

Dancing is a fantastic form of exercise, it helps to increase your heart rate and most people tend to enjoy having a boogie to their favourite songs. Make sure that you have a killer playlist at your party to get everyone up and moving on the dance floor.

Healthy Party Foods

Let’s be honest, finger foods at parties tend to come out of a packet. They’re convenient, require no preparation and require no cleaning up. Even though they can be great, try and serve some fresh homemade foods to help balance out the heavily processed offerings.

Offer Water

At party’s there is the temptation to get carried away with the alcohol, but’s it’s also important to keep hydrated. Offer your guests water alongside alcoholic beverages to help flush out those toxins – they’re going to thank you for it in the morning!

These are just some simple tricks on how to throw a health conscious party. Despite common misconceptions you really can have an amazing time and stay healthy, it’s all about finding that balance.
