Hosting a Christmas celebration and staying on track with weight loss

Christmas is the time of year when we get busy catching up with friends and family and our days seem to revolve around food and drinks.

There’s no need to worry about missing out on delicious food this Christmas as the healthy, tasty recipes below will help you reach your weight loss goals.

If you are hosting a party, make a feast on a large platter or turn it into a grazing table. Think one large spread where people can pick and choose and graze their way through the night.

Kaitie then added some Brie, pesto, semi-dried tomatoes, olives, fruit, nuts and crackers.

She says “I used some family favourite recipes so I knew it would be a crowd pleaser!”

Kaitie’s tips for creating a platter/grazing table

  • Raid your pantry, use ingredients you already have first!
  • It’s ok to get a little bit fancy by adding a little white chocolate or sprinkles to spice things up. Yes, it will increase the calories but it is a much better option than making the unhealthy alternatives and it’s only once a year!
  • After baking, cooling and decorating all your items get a large board to put your spread on.
  • Place things around the board starting with the bigger items first and what you want to feature in the middle. From there simply fill in gaps, you can do this by using a mix of nuts, fruit, dried fruit, anything you have on hand!

The Healthy Mummy team would like to thank Kaitie for sharing her Christmas grazing table with us.  Now, we just want to know – when can we come over?
