I think one of the best things about time is the new perspective it brings.
There was a point in my life where I started every year with a diet, determined to get rid of unwanted pounds. I would suffer from hunger for a few weeks until finally, I would give up. Inevitably, I'd head for the next bowl of creamy pasta or bag of chips I could get my hands on.
Now that I'm a
older more mature, I've come to see health as a marathon, not a sprint. Crazy plans that I can't stick to have no place in my life. They may get results in the short run, but in the long run, they leave me defeated, frustrated and feeling bad about myself.
These days, it is about making small decisions every day for a healthier me. This is as simple is taking a short walk after lunch, choosing a salad instead of a huge sandwich or making better decisions about what to serve when entertaining.
Luckily, with the chaos of the holidays behind us, it is easier to make good decisions this time of year. Friends and family are abandoning formal gatherings and returning the relaxed, casual entertaining.
This is my kind of entertaining!
I have been as guilty as anyone with using entertaining – or weekends in general – as an excuse to ignore the health goals I've set for myself.
This year, I have vowed to be more consistent with my goals. I'm using Marzetti® Veggie Dips to help me do it! We love the Marzetti® Spicy Avocado, Marzetti® Dill and Marzetti® Light Ranch.
Whether it is a casual get-together with kids or a football party, a vegetable tray is always perfect. Of course, a veggie tray isn’t complete without a phenomenal creamy dip.
Marzetti® Veggie Dips fit the bill.
They are the perfect way to jazz up resolution-friendly vegetables in a tasty way that everyone will love!
I love how Marzetti® Veggie Dips enhance the freshness, flavor, and goodness of veggies. They turn vegetables into something that guests will come back to for seconds.
(And they can do so guilt-free!)
Since we are preparing for our big Super Bowl bash, I thought it would be fun to create a football inspired veggie tray. The boys got such a kick out of this Football Veggie Tray. I know if it inspired them to eat veggies it will inspire my guests too!
I’m giving away a $50 Visa Gift Card to one lucky winner!
