We can hear the heckling now.
We know the Super Bowl comes once a year, and though nutrition-obsessed we also know that your "play" on any one day doesn't really change your health or weight. Yet, for sports fans every day is game day and socializing can include enough sports food and sports drinks that suddenly your "season" is ruined and you're wondering where your health game plan failed you. As you read this, look down: If you see a football where that sixpack could be, we're talking to you!
So eat strategically this Super Bowl. We're here to help, by highlighting five common Super Bowl food fumbles, and how you can turn them into MVP plays.
The rules of our game go something like this.
- Replace meaty with veggie when you can.
- Condiments can kill. Watch creamy dips and cheese.
- Drink responsibly and not just when it comes to driving. Have a budget and stick to it.
- And finally, eat at halftime. The problem is that people can munch their way through the entire, long game. Specify your eating time and focus on the game.
