12 Ideas for Entertaining

1.    Don’t prepare anything you wouldn’t want to eat yourself. 

2.    Remember that your guests don’t have to leave feeling “stuffed to the gills."

3.    Fill the room with low-fat munchies, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, instead of nuts and potato chips.

4.    Never apologize or make excuses for preparing a low-fat meal, and avoid using the words “diet” or “low-fat.

5.    Accept compliments with a gracious “thank you” instead of “thank you, but can you tell it’s a diet recipe?” 

6.    For an alcoholic beverage that’s on the light side, try a wine spritzer (half white wine and half club soda with a twist of lemon or lime). 

7.    Water, served in a pretty glass with a twist of lemon, makes a good beverage choice. 

8.    To add variety to any meal, serve several different vegetables and/or salads. 

9.    When serving vegetables, make large quantities rather than skimpy ones.  All too often, 
hosts serve huge platters of meat and put out tiny little bowls of vegetables.

10. For a sweet after-dinner touch, serve a flavored coffee. 

11. Remember that food is more appealing when served attractively. 

12. To summarize: Feed your guests the way you want to feed yourself.
