Healthier Happy Hour Appetizer Alternatives
Happy hours even happier when done guilt-free
So happy hour rolls around again and who doesn't love socializing? Myself included. A Happy Hour every now and again never hurt anyone but sometimes there's periods of time where they happen more than less and life's too short to say no!
I think you should be able to go about your normal way of life (whatever that is to you), not miss out of what you love and still manage to have a healthy lifestyle, with a few simple lifestyle habits.
I'm not saying to stick to the healthy alternatives 100% of the time, but if you do more often than not, you've got much more chance of staying on track!
Here are a few appetizer alternatives to keep your nutrition under control. Enjoy and have a fabulous, fit night out.
Salsa or tomato instead of cheese or cream based dips and sauces
Home made or made fresh table-side guacamole rather than store bought.
Raw vegetables instead of dipping chips
Grilled Chicken skewers/ Chicken Satay instead of wings and fried chicken
Ceviche or Poke instead of calamari
Sliders protein style with lettuce instead of the cheese & bun
Wine or champagne instead of cocktails and beer (generally less sugar and calories)
Crab cakes instead of wontons or potstickers
Chicken Lettuce wraps instead of quesadillas, tacos or flautas
Flatbread instead of deep pan or stuffed crust pizza
Sashimi instead of sushi
Now that we've got the healthier appetizer alternatives covered what about the drinks?*
