Super Bowl weekend is almost here and whether you’re watching the game with friends or family, it’s important to keep your health in mind.
While the typical Super Bowl spread may be tempting, it’s often filled with added sugars, unhealthy snacks, and not enough fruits and vegetables.
But don’t worry! You can still enjoy all the fun of the Super Bowl while also taking care of your health.
Here are 3 tips to help you eat healthy during Super Bowl weekend.
- Reduce Added Sugar and Increase Hydration: The average Super Bowl party is filled with sugary drinks and snacks, but it’s important to keep in mind that excessive sugar can lead to weight gain and other health problems. Instead of reaching for soda, opt for water, unsweetened tea or coffee, and fruit-infused water, like this Kiwi-Strawberry Spritzer. Also, try to steer clear of processed snacks, such as chips, and reach for fresh fruits and vegetables, like sliced bell peppers, carrots, and cucumbers, for a satisfying crunch.
- Add More Fruits and Vegetables: The key to a healthy diet is eating a variety of fruits and vegetables. Make sure to have plenty of fresh produce on hand, such as sliced apples, berries, and grapes, to snack on during the game. Try this delicious salad dressing recipe. You can also try making a colorful fruit and veggie tray, which is not only healthy but also adds a pop of color to your snack spread.
- Make Health Game Day Snacks: If you’re hosting a Super Bowl party, it’s easy to make healthier alternatives to traditional game day snacks. Try making Chex mix, baked sweet potato fries, homemade guacamole with veggies like carrots and cucumbers, or roasted chickpeas for a crunchy and satisfying snack. You can also grill up some chicken or veggies, like skewers of bell peppers and onions, to serve alongside a healthy dip, such as hummus or tzatziki.
In conclusion, eating healthy during Super Bowl weekend is easier than you think. With a little preparation and creativity, you can enjoy all the excitement of the big game while also taking care of your health. So, grab a water, reach for some fresh produce, and make some healthy game day snacks for you and your guests to enjoy.
