Celebrate in a Healthy Way With Your Family

Try Lupe's Tips for Family Parties:

  • Don't go to the party hungry. Eat a healthy snack before you leave home.

  • Bring a heart healthy dish to share. Prepare a tasty dish with lots of vegetables.

  • Cut down on calories and high-fat foods. Eat more vegetables and fruits instead of fried foods.

  • Watch your portions. Go for small portions, and eat slowly.

  • Take the focus off food. Dance, take walks, or play sports.

Lupe says: "I have a big family, and we have a lot of parties. Now, I prepare healthier dishes to take to the parties. I encourage everyone to dance or to take a walk. I want my family to follow a healthy path."
