It’s almost game time! You know what that means…beer, nachos, wings and more beer! Super Bowl Sunday is a time to socialize with friends over food and drinks, but that doesn't mean you have to call a time out on your clean-eating. If you're going to a Super Bowl party Sunday, read on for ideas to keep you healthy and FHIT from kick off to the final touch down.
Bring a healthy option.
Since you can’t control what your friends bring to the table, make sure you have another option besides mini hotdogs and buffalo chicken dip. One of our favorite healthy snacks is roasted chickpeas!
Oven-roasted chickpeas are about as simple as it gets — toss with olive oil and salt, roast then eat. Make sure to dry the chickpeas as much as possible before roasting and don’t be stingy on the olive oil. You can use less, but your chickpeas will be less crispy.
Although we’re all about eating healthy, we also believe that everyone deserves to indulge, especially on game days!. PureWow put together a list of 9 different ways to make one of our all time favorites- nachos. Our favorite is the Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos. Get the recipe here.
Check out other healthy snacks you will love from POPSUGAR here.
Skip the calorie loaded beers and sugary mixers like juices and soda, and stick to clear liquors like vodka and tequila to limit calorie intake while still having fun. To give your drinks a little life add a lemon or lime squeeze and club soda! We also love bemixed, an all natural, zero-calorie (yes, we said zero) cocktail mixer to upgrade your drinks!
Keep it moving!
Move as much as possible. Every time your team scores do a touchdown victory dance. See an empty bowl or cup? Volunteer to get up and refill friend’s snacks and drinks. Staying active and busy as much as possible will keep you on your game. Let’s be real, no one likes a couch potato!
If you’re feeling tired and full after all the snacking, drinking and socializing, make sure you sign up for a class HERE so you can refuel for the week ahead and have no postgame guilt!
Have fun and #liveFHIT!
