SLIM TIPS 1. Dump the bread! These recipes are great served in spoons. And it’s so cute... 2. Don’t have enough spoons? Cucumbers slices make perfect little discs to hold a bite! 3.

Serve watermelon juice. Seriously. It helps with bloating, is a pretty color and is yummy.

4. Replace the “chips” in chips and dip for crudité or bake your own kale chips. Salsa is inherently low fat – scoop some up in a celery stick! 5. Plain organic popcorn sprinkled with olive oil and a touch of truffle salt... heaven! 6. Suggest a splash of bubbly water to white wine. A “spritzer” cuts down the sugar content and saves you tons of calories. I love to have my white wine over ice. 7. Small portions! Resist the temptation to over serve your guests. Let me reiterate... Small portions! 8.

9.

Let your guests know if you will be serving them a full dinner or just appetizers. That way the dieters can manage their food intake. Make sure to have a pitcher of plain or spa water with glasses easily accessible to your guests so they can stay hydrated and alternate between cocktails and water.

10. Spa water – cucumbers, mint, citrus or apples.

Whatever you have on hand. Tip: good to do the day before so the water gets infused with the flavors.

11. When your first guest walks in, your treats should

be out and ready to go. Don’t let your friends start enjoying those those “sneeky’s” on an empty stomach. Besides the obvious, it encourages eating way more than they need.
