RECIPES AND HINTS FOR THE SUPERBOWL PARTY
Score Big! – Seven Touchdown Tips from Weight Watchers:

1. Squelch your thirst – Drink diet soda, club soda, seltzer, or non-alcoholic beer. If beer is your beverage of choice, remember this – one 12-fluid-ounce can of beer is 150 calories.

2. Something to crunch – Pretzels are a great substitute for chips. They have a super salty taste, hearty crunch, and fewer calories than potato chips per ounce. For added flavor, mustard makes a zesty pretzel dip.

3. Finger food – Order or prepare a fresh fruit or vegetable tray instead of a cheese tray.

4. Slam, dunk and dip – Plain yogurt makes an excellent alternative for sour cream in dips. Fat-free vegetable salsas are very flavorful substitutes for creamy dips, they’re lower in calories, and can spice up any low-fat potato or tortilla chip.

5. Hearty food for the soul – Try putting a healthy spin on a game-day favorite and prepare vegetarian chili instead of the traditional meat-based variety.

6. Zesty hot wings – Instead of buffalo-style wings, make chicken fingers using skinless chicken breast strips. Season with hot sauce or other hot spice and dip into a low-fat blue cheese, mustard, honey, or barbecue sauce.

7. Don’t just sit there! – Get up and get moving before the game, during the extended half-time show, and after the game has ended. Go outside and take an evening stroll or enjoy a game of catch.

You CAN stay in control, even when Game Day may seem impossible. Plan ahead - click on the Appetizers link to find tons of Super recipes! In fact, check the Crockpot, Smoothies, and Desserts too.
