We are hosting a superbowl party.
Here are a few ideas for you..
It's the end of January and you've been true to your New Year's diet and exercise resolutions. Your clothes are fitting nicely and healthy eating is becoming a comfortable habit. But, there's trouble ahead. That first big event of the year threatens to undo all your good work -- the Super Bowl party.
Don't worry. You can enjoy a Super Bowl party without risking your waistline. For starters, don't starve yourself the day of the party. That will just make it more likely that you'll overeat later on at the gathering. Have a small fiber-filled snack such as a piece of fruit or whole grain crackers before you head out. The odds of eating healthy will be in your favor if your stomach's not growling.
Here's a few SUPER tips for surviving the Super Bowl.
When you get to the party, take a look at all the goodies before you dig in. Look for foods that are more nutrient dense, like raw vegetables, shrimp, lean meats, salsa, guacamole, cheese, fruit, nuts and crackers.
Thank you! Any help is appreciated. dh and I are both on 1000 calorie diets and taht doesn't leave a lot of room for snacks. We have been really good however and resisted treats and are "saving" to splurdge some on bowl day.
You're Welcome, I'm glad to help.
Thanks those are great ideas.
Hi there, We have an article 15 Suggestions for a Healthy Superbowl Party that you might find helpful as well. There are some great tips there, like the chili that Jaielyn suggested.
Also, one of my favorite healthy substitutes for a high-fat food is sweet potato fries. Here's a recipe. They're satisfying and so easy to make. You can find additional recipes at http://www.ivillage.com/food. Just click on the "healthy" tab.
And if all else fails, you can always get up and dance at half time to work off any extra calories! :smileywink:
Hope this helps, looks like a good place for quick ideas.
imotherothers~ I saw this recipe for Blackened Green Beans with Red Pepper Sauce this morning and thought of you!
All this talk about food is making me hungry!
