Election Party Menu

Election Party Menu

Before you read any further, did you vote? If not, go, go go to your local polling station right now! If you did your civic duty by casting a ballot today, your job is done. But wait! You can hop into your pajamas later and watch the election returns on television until the next president is determined, but there’s a good chance you’re hosting or attending a party. What should you cook?!?
 
The folks at Eating Well magazine know that it will be party time for a lot of people tonight, but whether you are jovially celebrating or anxiously awaiting, there’s no reason to go overboard with the consuming. No matter what the occasion, living healthier should still be a top priority and that’s why these healthy election party recipes are just perfect for tonight.
 
In lieu of beer, try spiced apple cider (a serving of fruit!), a drink that is great for chilly evenings. Hot artichoke dip is one of those quintessential party appetizers, but it’s usually loaded with fat. Eating Well has tweaked the recipe, making a healthier, high-fiber version.

I wanted to do something fun, but I ended up getting so nauseous waiting for results -- food was the last thing on my mind!

I wanted to cook something fun and festive tonight too, but I ran out of time and ended up eating scrambled eggs while I listened to the election results!

It's funny....i just told a friend that I wanted to order pizza and get some beer tonight...but now this post is making me rethink things. Can't i have a little bit of both worlds? Maybe water and...some pizza with some carrots and hummus??
