Healthy Menu Alternatives for the New Year

By December 20, 2019

It’s officially the new year and with that comes New Year’s resolutions! Choosing to be healthier is one of the most common New Year’s resolutions, but it can be hard to stay healthy when attending an event or conference. Here are some tips on how to serve healthier food options at your next event:

Healthier snack options

Serving heavy snacks during breaks will only make it harder for your attendees to stay alert throughout the rest of the day. Think of offering snacks like trail mix, popcorn, and fresh fruits and vegetables instead of cookies and chips.

Sweet potato fries over regular fries

This small switch turns virtually the same vegetable into a much healthier option and can be turned into a sweet or savory dish.

Leaner meats

In the mood for a hamburger? Using a leaner meat for the burger patty, like turkey or chicken, will still keep guests satisfied while being heart healthy.

Final note

It should always be a best practice to find out the dietary needs of your guests before the event occurs. This can happen through a pre-event email or questionnaire sent to guests ahead of time.
