For some people, Super Bowl conjures up images of touchdowns, field goals and first downs. Me? Well, I was about 25 before I fully understood what a first down WAS (Seriously. It’s embarrassing.)
I always associated Super Bowl with family, friends fun, funny commercials…..and food. Buffalo wings, dips, pizza, what have you….Super Bowl is typically full of delicious and extraordinarily unhealthy victuals (I kind of love that word).
BUT, it doesn’t have to be that way. If you’re headed to a party, or you’re hosting one, consider bringing one of these dishes. You and your guests will have all of the flavor and none of the horror (well, at least LESS of the horror) the next day. I plan to make a couple of these things this weekend.
From Eating Well:
Boneless Buffalo Wings (uses whole wheat flour and less oil)
Creamy Spinach Dip (84 fewer calories and 10 fewer grams of fat per serving than a typical spinach dip)
Lemon Drop Chicken Wings (with VODKA!)
I don’t have fabulous recipes to share, but I do have a few general food suggestions: turkey chili made with low-sodium seasoning (check Whole Foods for a great one!), sweet potato fries, veggies and hummus, lettuce wraps, and angel food cake with strawberries.
I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to Sunday!
