If you want to be a little healthier try serving cauliflower. There are great new recipes out there that utilize this once boring and bland vegetable. Turn plain cauliflower into a pizza crust, mac and cheese, or even Buffalo flavored bites.
Don’t feel like cooking? Invite guests to design their own meals. This works great with pizzas. Just have the crust ready and a variety of toppings for guests to choose from. Everyone will be able to enjoy the dish they want. Those looking to stick to a diet can load their pizza with veggies while others are welcome to indulge. You can even invite guests to make dessert pizzas! The possibilities are endless.
Now that you’ve made dinner and appetizers a little healthier, you can indulge with dessert. Instead of cake or cupcakes, serve ice cream sandwiches. It’s easier than scooping individual servings or ice cream, and convenient to eat. You can stick with the classic chocolate cookie with vanilla ice cream or experiment by making your own ice cream sandwiches. Try different combinations of cookies and ice cream flavors until your find your favorite. These desserts can easily be made days before the party.
