Super Bowl = Super……. Food?

January 31st, 2012|Nutrition|Comments Off on Super Bowl = Super……. Food?

And not super foods that provide the most nutrients for their punch. You do not have let a party derail your nutrition plan.

The true “dorky dietitian” healthy way to go is kick off with fresh vegetables and low-fat dip, fruit kabobs, whole-grain breads and a variety of lean meats for sandwiches. During the second half, snack on popcorn, pretzels with mustard dip, baked tortilla chips and salsa, apple slices and low-fat caramel dip. Post-game, offer your guests fruit parfaits or angel food cake with chocolate sauce.

A more moderate approach would be to follow these simple strategies:
•Have a small snack before going to a party. Going out hungry often results in overeating.
•Use a plate for even the smallest snack. You’ll eat less.
•Moderate your alcohol consumption. Alcohol causes blood sugar to drop, which leads to hunger.

Enjoy the game and friends. Do not focus on the food.
