Here’s How to Win at Hosting Holiday Parties

Snacks and parties go hand-in-hand with the all-important munch-while-you-mingle tradition.

Unfortunately, most party snacks are far from healthy due to busy hosts who may not have time to make involved recipes or research all those popular diet-friendly plates. So, when looking to create healthier snacks, consider these simple tricks to keep your to-do list light while benefiting your guests with superfoods.

Offer Fresh Vegetables
If you love a certain type of chip or cracker, then by all means, serve it! Yet, by also giving your guests an option of fresh vegetables, you're providing a perfect opportunity to nail down that elusive five-a-day requirement in bite-sized form. In addition to carrots and celery, try serving hydrating cucumber, antioxidant-rich broccoli, and skin-friendly cauliflower and radishes.

Remix Dips
No worries if you don't have time to make that gourmet dip from scratch and instead opt for the store-bought route. But, don't be afraid to spice things up a bit with superfood additions! Creamy dips like guacamole and hummus are great catalysts for superfood powders. Savory dips can be easily boosted by mixing in a little Wheatgrass Powder or flavor-neutral Protein & Greens Essential Blend or made additionally immune-boosting by stealthily stirring in some Camu. If you'd like to show off the flavors of the superfoods you're using a little more, try adding Goji Powder to hummus or blend Hemp Seeds into a cream-based dip.

Use the Power of Garnish
Ready-made platters don't often come with particularly inventive garnishes, but they're certainly easy to add! Protein-rich superfood seeds like Hemp, Chia and Pumpkin Seeds can be sprinkled on just about anything to add alluring texture and visual appeal (not to mention important minerals). Nutrient-dense sprouts are another wonderful way to enhance the healthy aesthetics of any dish. What's more, this superfood technique can be applied to dishes of all varieties – from nachos to crostini to sliders.

Go Nuts
Winning the easiest (and often most appreciated) healthy snack award is bountiful bowls of nuts, which are packed with filling protein and good fats, and even support the cardiovascular system, too. Harness the superfood effect even further by serving the more nutrient-dense varieties, such as almonds, Cashews and walnuts. Bonus points if you offer some the Navitas Superfood+ varieties, which are uniquely abundant in top-tier superfoods like Turmeric, Cacao and Maca.
