Kick off the party 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.
You can have a great time watching the Super Bowl without fumbling your diet:
- 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.
