Right after Thanksgiving, the Superbowl Sunday is the second largest food consumption of the year… Enjoy the day of football but don’t splurge. EAT SMART.
1) Sweet Potato Fries
Instead of normal fries, boil sweet potatoes until tender. Then, cut them into thin fries. In order to reduce fat intake, spray a pan with PAM 0 calorie spray and fry them. Lightly salted and seasoned with some herbs this is a very healthy alternative to normal fries.
2) Turkey Burgers
Replace your beef burger with a healthier turkey burger. Buy lean ground turkey (93/7). In a large bowl, mix ground turkey, seasoning (low sodium), egg whites, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper. Cook the patties in a medium skillet over medium heat.
3) Hummus and celery
Potato chips?! No…. in order to ensure a healthy diet, stick to veggies and protein-rich hummus. Make your own hummus or buy healthy choices from the store (click here).
4) Crystal Light
Pop or soda? Neither, stick to low or zero calorie drinks. The amount of sugar and calories consumed just from pop is extremely high when there is such simple alternatives. Add crystal light or Mio to your drink, drink fruit-infused water or if you need a coke, stick to diet coke. Zero calorie drink options: (click here).
Enjoy this last big day of football and may the better team win.
