This post was sponsored by Weight Watchers Sweet Baked Goods as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.
Because my daughter is on a strict competition diet a fair percentage of the year for bodybuilding, I’m used to considering her dietary needs whenever I plan a dinner party. I know how frustrating it is for her when we attend family get-togethers where there are only one or two things she can eat.
I never want any of my guests to feel that way, so I always ask them if they have any allergies or food concerns, and I try to plan a menu that everyone can enjoy.
Here are some simple dinner party tips that will ensure your diet-conscious guests have a great meal and a great time.
Simple Dinner Party Tips for Hosting Guests with Dietary Concerns
Offer a sparkling alternative to cocktails. Serve fancy sparkling or fruit-infused water in a pretty dispenser, elegant pitcher or beautifully garnished glasses and everyone will feel as if they’re drinking something special.
Serve lots of appetizers and finger foods and Place the special menu items front and center for easy visibility. Things like raw vegetables with healthy bean dip dips, hummus and heart-healthy roasted nuts are great options.
Use small plates. Food-restricted guests don’t have to feel badly about eating tiny bites because everyone else is too.
Set up a fresh green salad bar with lots of veggies, toppings and light dressing options and lemon slices.
Serve fresh fruit and mini-desserts to end the meal. Tiny-ish treats mean guests don’t have to deprive themselves since they’re only having itty bitty tastes.
Try serving one of your favorite Weight Watchers Sweet Baked Goods treats, like these Salted Caramel Brownie Bliss bites. They combine the sweetness of rich chocolate brownies and decadent salted caramel in a delicious treat that’s just 80 calories and 4 SmartPoints®.
And they look so pretty on a party table too! Another idea is to put a couple of them in pretty little favor bags for guests to take home.
