Seems we’re all looking forward to Sunday’s Super Bowl game, however, we’re not looking forward to those unhealthy calorie bombs that are served up on this rowdy night.  I’ve created a few tips for you to help navigate your way through the buffalo wings and nachos so you’ll be able to enjoy the game and keep yourself healthy and happy with your food choices.


Reach for Fiber

Cruditee? You bet…Opt for fresh sliced cucumbers, celery, radish, carrots, jicama, zucchini and squash dipped into a healthy dip using Greek plain yogurt, fresh lemon juice and fresh herbs and spices such as cilantro and chili powder.

Turn up the Heat

Create a bowl of heart-healthy chili for your guests to enjoy.  Toss in a few different types of beans such as White, Navy, Kidney, Black and Chickpeas along with a dose of vegetables and/or lean turkey.  Top your chili with a dash of nutritional yeast and a dollop of Low Fat Ricotta Cheese or Greek plain yogurt for a healthy spin on cheese and sour cream.

Watch your Spirits

Just because it’s a night of celebration, doesn’t mean you have to keep up with the boys and drink beer until you feel sick.  Save yourself the hangover and the unnecessary calories by splashing cranberry or orange juice into a glass of seltzer with a dash of lime juice for a tasty spritzer.

To Dip or Not to Dip?

That is the question.  Be sure to watch your dips; salsa, guacamole and Greek yogurt are excellent options, however, be sure to portion your servings especially if you are going taste the warm cheese dip or creamy ranch dressing as these are full of unhealthy additives and preservatives.

Eat Before You Play

Have a small meal prior to arriving at your football shindig.  Try a piece of grilled chicken with hummus and vegetables or a bowl of gluten-free cereal with Greek yogurt and a drizzle of agave nectar.  Trail mix makes a wonderful go-to snack that you can toss into your bag for the party in case there are no other healthy options served.

Watch the Wings

Don’t restrict yourself from any foods, as we all know this only will lead to disaster.  However, be sure to steer clear of those fried foods such as fries and potato skins.  Wings are usually cooked with the skin on, so be sure to remove the skin before eating them as they’re just as tasty without the skin.  Dip them into your Greek yogurt, salsa or guacamole for a satisfying taste without the saturated fat.
