We eat to nourish our body with all of the nutrients, vitamins and minerals we need to keep everything running smoothly. Therefore, sticking to unprocessed, natural and nutrient-dense food is an easy and practical party grazing tip. A good rule of thumb when eating at a party is to start with vegetables (skip the dip), move on to fruit if it’s available, then onto protein, followed by starches. If you’re craving processed food, sweet treats or something loaded with salt, savour it slowly and really enjoy it. Your cortisol levels spike when you’re stressed out while eating, so let go of the guilt and save your indulgences for things you really love. If you’re drinking, try to stick to very clean spirits, preferably mescal, as it’s very natural and slow to spike blood-sugar levels.
