Go Pats!!!
Once again the New England Patriots have won their way into the Super Bowl. So whether you are hosting or attending an upcoming party, I have a winning game plan for both.
This week…Super Bowl Party Tips to Save Your Shape if you are hosting.
If you are hosting a party, start planning, you can serve healthy, lower-fat snacks that are sure to satisfy the crowd.
1.) Ok, there’s no way I am going to tell New England fans they shouldn’t have pizza. So, “order up”! Do go light on the cheese and ask for extra veggies rather than pepperoni, sausage or bacon.
2.) If serving sandwiches, use whole-wheat or rye bread, low-fat mayonnaise, mustard, low-fat cheese, turkey breast and lots of veggies such as sliced tomatoes, onions, pickles, roasted mushrooms and red peppers.
3.) Or replace all buns and breading for sandwiches with a lettuce wrap alternative.
4.) Serve humus with a vegetable platter instead of cheese and crackers.
5.) Fruit platters with greek yogurt for dipping, make your platter arrangements colorful and creative.
6.) Skip the cheese and do nachos with salsa and guacamole.
7.) Prepare your own mixture of homemade snack mix using unsalted nuts, raisins, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and pretzels.
8.) Create winning treats, bake cookies and tasty bars with protein powder instead of flour.
9.) For beverages, serve water, sparkling and still with a variety of fruit wedges for taste. Provide lighter versions of your favorite beers.
10.) Go Online to find great recipes for your Super Bowl event. Look for healthier ways to prepare chicken, chili, dips for dipping and even your own specialty pizzas.
