Whether it’s football, basketball, or an afternoon get together, there’s no one who doesn’t love an awesome party.  Whether you are hosting or bringing something to attend a party, you want be ahead of the game and snack smart!

 

What’s on TV might be the main event, but the spread on the table is what keeps the party happy and cheering. There can be a lot of stress and hustle when hosting, and we recommend keeping it simple with great tasting party dishes that are quick, easy, and of course a crowd pleaser! Libby’s® Canned Vegetables a perfect ingredient to help get you started because they can be used in so many ways.

 

Parties are where extra calories can sneak up. We recommend drafting up a game plan of smart recipes so you and your guests can eat well while having fun!

 

If you are hosting, you have the upper hand of controlling most of the food choices. We recommend loading up on veggies. Sometimes people forget about serving veggies completely or only put out a tray of raw cut up veggies that no one touches. Switch up the plan this year and get creative with veggie-packed recipes that make carrots, peas or corn the star ingredient.

 

Libby’s® is a perfect and easy solution to add a boost of nutrition, all while adding delicious flavor. Simply pop open the can and make into a dip, wrap, or chili. No one will even know it’s a better-for-you recipe!

 

Set up a Game Plan to navigate the party and follow the tips below to make sure you’re the true winner of the game.

  1. Bring a safe snack! You do not know what everyone else is making, bring a snack or dish that you know is nutritious and loaded with your favorite Libby’s® Canned Vegetables. You can munch on this safe snack if other options are not best – let us call this your “safe zone.”
  2. Hands down! Eating with your hands can lead to mindless eating, instead grab a plate and fork, pick a few items you like, and sit down to give attention to what you are eating.  You will find yourself much more satisfied eating this way, rather than eating a whole bag of chips you did not even realize.
  3. Focus on the game and the people! Put the plate down, root for your favorite team, and enjoy the company of friends and family.
