Tips for a Healthier Super Bowl Party

Your Super Bowl get together doesn't have to bomb your diet.

1)  Finger Foods.   Think sliders, mini-tacos, meatballs, sliced meats/cheeses, sandwiches, snack boards, popcorn, nuts.

2)  Balance the Bounty.  Serve a variety of vegetables and fruits served on boards, skewers or in football cups.

3)  Pump up the Pizza.  If you're going to serve pizza, load it up with added veggies, leaner meats.  Try thin crust.

4)  Don't drink all your calories.  Most calories are consumed in drinks that pack way too many calories.  Serve non-caloric beverages like sparkling water infused with fresh fruit, lower-calorie sodas or alcoholic beverages and lots of water.
