It’s that time of year again…the Super Bowl is upon us, and whether you’re rooting for the Patriots or the Rams this weekend, I think there’s one thing we can all agree about – the critical importance of Super Bowl snacks!
However, for those of us who are mindful about what we’re putting in our bodies, Super Bowl snacking introduces it’s own set of dietary challenges. So, the question is: how can we fully enjoy our Super Bowl celebration without compromising our commitment to eating healthy?
Here are some tips, tools, and tricks to keep your nutritional goals on track, so you can relax and enjoy the game, but not feel cheated by what you’re consuming.
Make your own healthy snacks to bring to the party!
Personally, this is my favorite tip, and, if you make use of it, you’re sure to impress your company and leave those Cheetos in the dust. If you’re in need of a little inspiration about what to bring to the party, try looking through some of our delicious recipes to find the perfect choices. We even have a section dedicated to Super Bowl snacks.
Instead of overloading on greasy chicken wings try our healthier buffalo chicken dip or our Oven Baked Buttermilk Fried Chicken. This option is the perfect cancer-fighting treat if you’re in the mood for something savory. Since dips are a Super Bowl party, essential we’ve put together a selection of dips that are sure to compliment your healthy snacks. For those who are looking to avoid the bar, our beverage section may be of particular interest, it includes countless fun mock-tail options. In terms of drinks, our staff pick is hands down the mock sangria. This fresh and exciting drink is sure to hit the spot.
Last, but certainly not least, if you’re like me, you’ll definitely need a little something to satisfy that sweet tooth. Luckily, we’ve got you covered. Our site also includes some incredible health-conscious sweets that are guaranteed to leave you and the rest of the crowd feeling happy and satisfied. As a chocoholic, I have to recommend the chocolate peanut butter popcorn. This fun treat is not only light but east to grab on the go.
