THE HEALTHY HOUSEWIVES DINNER PARTY

Hey Housewives!

I know this is a little late but wanted to share with you some recipes we had from our first official Healthy Housewives dinner part from last Thursday night. It was a great blend of all of our healthy lifestyle in drinks, appetizers, salads, main meal, and desserts.

First off, I want to say there are 6 of us Housewives. We all lead 6 different healthy lifestyles. Some of us live a plant based lifestyle, some of us are vegetarian, and some of us eat meat. Some of you will be able to relate to one of us. Some of you won’t. We do what works for our lifetyle, just as I am sure you do what works for your lifetsyle. No one’s healthy lifetsyle is better than the other. We do what works for our beliefs. So with that being said…

We started off the night toasting to the new cast of the Healthy Housewives. We finally have our 6 cast members locked in! So excited about that!

We toasted with champagne and freshly juiced apples. Not sure what you call that? I know that orange juice and champagne is called a mimosa. Maybe I will it an apple crisp. The taste of the fresh raw apple juice and the bubbly from the champagne made it taste so refreshing and sweet!

We have video of our meals too. I just have to cut and edit it for you guys and put it on our HH Youtube channel.

It was fun to share and swap recipes of healthier meal choices. We plan on throwing another one soon. I was thinking a Healthy Holiday party so that way we can share our healthy holiday recipes with you!
