Super Bowl Sunday is another day like Thanksgiving to pork out. Don’t let this day sabotage your efforts from any New Year’s resolution you may have. I found this article from Fitness Magazine 2010. These tips are good advice for any party.
Kick off with fiber.
Place mugs of turkey chili (use extra-lean ground meat) on the first table that guests see as they walk into the room. The filling snack will set the stage for a healthy evening.
Intercept fatty snacks.
Put buffalo wings out of arm’s reach. They’re almost always cooked with the skin on, but you can slash fat and calories a bit by baking instead of frying.
Toss a 3-ounce package of microwave popcorn with 1/2 cup grated Parmesan, 3 tablespoons brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes for a sweet-and-spicy snack with about 15 calories per handful.
Pass on big portions.
It’s easy to overdo chips and guacamole. Put 6 tablespoons of guacamole into ramekins with baskets of about 30 chips on side tables. This is the perfect amount for two people to share.
