How to Make Tasty, Healthy Nacho 'Knockoffs'

Pinterest Logo

Almost recovered from the holidays? Not so fast, because your social calendar may be about to fill up again! Is your house on a Mardi Gras parade route? Your turn to host this year’s party for the Big Game? Are you holding a “Galentine’s Day” gathering for your girls?

Host or attendee, you may need to make decision on the food you serve or bring. If you are working toward a health goal, don’t upset your plans because of a social gathering; the trick is to incorporate healthy and diverse snack options into the party’s spread. And maybe keep fried foods off the menu altogether. 😉

Here's an idea for a delicious, easy-to-prepare recipe! Digital Medicine Professional Health Coach Rachael Swanson shares her “healthy nacho knockoff,” a tasty take on traditional nachos. By using sweet peppers as the “chips,” Rachael’s colorful version limits sodium and carbohydrates but is equally delicious to a usual version.

Another healthy tip is to focus on the game, the parade, or the company – don’t hang around the food table. Better yet, play a game of flag football, dance to the marching bands, or take a stroll with a friend.
