Super Bowl Snacks
I wanted to feature some tasty, lighter Super Bowl snacks that are easy to do and help you stay on plan. Getting together to watch the big game usually means pigging out on greasy, fatty foods. There is nothing wrong with indulging once in awhile but it matters by the portion sizes and not feeling guilty the next day. When you're armed with super bowl snacks that are tasty and better for you, you gain the confidence that you can enjoy a fun event and feel great about your decisions. Make sure you portion out what you will be eating ahead of time so the mindless eating food wont happen. I recall eating the full bag of Lays Chips with French Onion Dip in one sitting. I would feel so awful about doing some real damage to that bag and still feel hungry. Junk food does not stick to you. These recipes feature power foods that will help you stay fuller longer. Those are whole grains, low fat dairy, fruits, veggies and healthy oils.
The following will feature the recipes of Mini Pizzas, Dip and Crackers, and Taffy Apple Salad. The pictures will be paired after the recipe. These recipes can be done with your children joining you in cooking. It can become a family fun activity that they feel proud of helping. I know my son tends to want to eat it if he put it together himself. Getting the whole family involved in this healthy lifestyle will set you up for success. The more support you have, the better.
Enjoy your tasty, lighter Super Bowl snacks this year. Post pictures of your creations on the Gwynspiration for Weight Loss Facebook fan page. I would love to hear how the event went and if you enjoyed the tasty, simple Super Bowl snacks.
