How to Make Tasty, Healthy Nacho 'Knockoffs'
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.
