Superbowl Food (that is actually healthy!)

Superbowl XLIII is in 4 days and frankly superbowl parties are one of the best times to eat snacks!!  With a little planning though you can eat some snacks that taste good, but also actually have some nutrition

Here is what I am planning:

  1. Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

  2. Jalapeno Lime Salsa

  3. Fresh Guacamole


These are all fantastic dips and all of them have some great nutritional stats.  I'll be serving these with lightly salted Triscuits and the Natural Yellow Corn Tostitos (these are not nutritious, but you could do A LOT worse, and it is the SUPER BOWL after all!).  As with anything enjoy some of each, but don't gorge out!!! (Save some room for next year! :-) )

Given that the Superbowl is on Feburary 1st, that means I will have completed the entire month of January on my 90% Raw Food Diet.  So I am also planning one major step out from my normal diet of raw foods/juices, fish, and whole grains.  The splurge??? CHICKEN WINGS!!  Fried in good ole fashioned oil!!!  ... any probably dipped in Blue Cheese dressing!!  Remember... it is okay to enjoy some non-healthy food sometimes... just try to remove these items from your normal lifestyle, and enjoy them on "Special Occasions"!!

So...

  1. Enjoy the Superbowl!

  2. Plan to eat some healthy snacks!

  3. Plan at least one "step out" from your healthy diet (the super bowl is a special occasion... even if you hate football!)


Oh... and GO CARDINALS!!

The Superbowl is the BIGGEST pizza day of the year! (if you love pizza the Superbowl is a good time to enjoy this unhealthy pleasure!)
