How to Combine Healthy Eating & Socialising

Healthy eating and socialising normally do not go together, it’s just way too hard isn’t it? I do have my moments, but I certainly feel my best when choosing healthy foods and socialising is no exception.

Let’s be honest we have all been there, after a few drinks, health and fitness becomes the last thing on your mind! If you are on a fat loss and muscle toning program, you don’t want throw away all your hard work during the week with just one social event, so how can you stay on track? Here are a few ideas for Healthy Entertaining and Socialising without the added kilos.

Entertaining at home:
Healthy platters with a range of raw veggies, fresh fruit and healthy dips such as hommous.

Healthy Dips Platter

Healthy Dips Platter made by Amelia – Pumpkin dip, Hommous dip, fat free sundried tomatoes, seaweed rice crackers and cubes of cheddar cheese (all gluten free).

At a restaurant/café or pub:
Choose lean protein for example: fish, chicken or steak as the first step. Then ask for your protein to be grilled and any sauces to be served on the side. Add steamed vegetables or a salad and voila! Don’t be afraid to ask for what you like, your body will thank you for it.
