How to Cut Calories at Parties with Low Calorie Drinks and Food

This is a sponsored post on behalf of White Claw Seltzer Works. All text and opinions are my own.

I have been diligently reducing my calorie intake using the Weight Watcher program over the last few months. I have lost 11 pounds so far which is wonderful, but I have a long way to go. My goal is to lose about 50 lbs. It is not an easy feet juggling working 50 + hours per week, having a toddler to run after, and spending time with family and friends on the weekend.

I feel like the calories come out of the woodwork on the weekend when I am spending time with family and friends. Everyone is cooking high-calorie meals and pouring high-calorie drinks. I have started bringing my food and drinks so that I can control what is going into my body. I bring salads like this pineapple salad and watermelon salad to fill up on while I am at parties. Of course, I bring enough for everyone so that I am not excluding anyone who wants to cut calories and eat some yummy fruit.

I also bring my drinks to the weekend parties so that I know how many calories I am drinking. I found a low-calorie drink that is easy to bring with me to parties. It is called White Claw Hard Seltzer. It is an all new type of alcohol refreshment that is 100% natural, low carb and gluten free sparkling seltzer water with 5% alcohol and just a hint of fresh fruit.

White Claw Hard Seltzers comes in fabulous flavors: Lime, Black Cherry and Ruby Grapefruit. My favorite is Black Cherry. These timeless qualities are more relevant than ever given today’s emphasis on having healthier lifestyles and making more balanced choices. For those who enjoy a dry, crisp refreshment without all the bad stuff, now there’s White Claw Hard Seltzer. I love that I don’t have to increase my Fit Bit steps to drink one of these Hard Seltzers. They are refreshing and perfect for outdoor summer fun. White Claw is not a beer or cider, making it completely new and considerably lighter than a cocktail or beer that will leave drinkers satisfied and refreshed, but not full. The 110 calories and only 4 Weight Watcher’s Smart Points per can have me sold! You can find White Claw Hard Seltzers for $9.99 for a 6-pack so that you can share with your friends.

IMG_9662What is a White Claw?

The White Claw Name is so cool. White Claws are freakishly large, big waves that only seem to happen in the ocean when the conditions are just right…dry, hot days when the air is heavy with the promise of a storm. The waves swell in sets of three and then crash, leaving a cool refreshing spray that lingers in the air for days. Like the legendary ‘White Claw’ waves, hard seltzer brings a new definition in refreshment; one that is simple and pure.

  1. I have not heard of these before! I love the Weight Watchers program, I am working on redropping some of the weight I put back on during the divorce. It really is crazy how fast calories can add up when you are sitting around talking with the girl friends!

  2. I also have not heard about these before! I’ll have to look into it! I just have to say that I love the photos you took with incorporating the blow-up flamingo! 🙂 Great way to catch my attention for sure 🙂 Thanks for this post!

  3. Hmm never heard of these. Calories are the devil I hate them and you can pack them on so fast that you don’t even know. Breakfast for me will take a good chance of what I am supposed to have per day.

  4. I’ve never heard of these before but I’ll be looking for them for sure. They seem like they would be a great alternative to other drinks. I hope they offer them in my market.

  5. Congratulations on your weight loss. I am trying to lose a few pounds so I know how hard it is to lose eleven 11 pounds. Thank you for sharing this information about White Claw drinks. The flavor sound wonderful and the price is good as well. Best wishes in your weight loss journey.

  6. I have not seen these, but will definitely be on the lookout. My scale’s numbers have gone up thanks to some health issues and I need to find good low calorie alternatives as I get back on the bandwagon for healthier living.

  7. Congratulations on your weight loss! It is so hard to keep going when progress doesn’t seem to happen a quick as you want it to. Summer barbecues are my weakness. I love sitting around with family and friends indulging in food.

  8. It is so hard to eat healthy at summer get-togethers, that is, unless there are fresh healthy options! I follow a mainly vegan diet so I have no choice but to steer clear from a lot of the fat and calorie-laden foods!

  9. I want to come to your pool! What a great way to have a nice drink but less calories. Plus that flamingo makes any drink more summer festive! Great ideas for some great low calorie fun in the sun!

  10. These White Claw drinks sound like what I need to be able to take a break and enjoy a pool party or bbq without feeling guilty about the calories. Thanks so much for sharing this post! I can not wait to get out in the sun with friends and family.
