Bring Your Own Veggies to Holiday Parties

Holiday Fit Tip: BYOV

I belong to a mom's group that may as well be a gourmet club; every mom (and one dad) is an amazing cook. Needless to say, the day after our Christmas potluck, I had a food hangover. Every dish was not only tasty, but also oh so rich, even mine – bacon, provolone, and butternut squash baked penne pasta.

In years past, I supplied the veggies. I usually prepare them simply and bring broccoli with lemon juice, olive oil, and salt, as well as green beans with a little olive oil and some pine nuts for texture. Crudité or a big green salad, lightly dressed of course, would be welcome additions to any buffet.

Try bringing a veggie to bring to your next party; yes BYOV! I promise you, the other guests will eat them up! Tell in the comments section below what veggie you usually take to dinner parties.
