Easy Swaps to Slim Down Super Bowl Sunday

Easy Swaps to Slim Down Super Bowl Sunday. Even though the Super Bowl isn’t officially a national holiday in the U.S., Super Bowl Sunday is the biggest day of the year in snack-food consumption and second only to Thanksgiving in overall food consumption. But unlike Thanksgiving where -- for most celebrants at least -- a balanced meal is central to the occasion, the four major food groups on Super Bowl Sunday are chips and dip, pizza, wings and beer. A football fan’s game day calorie consumption can easily match -- or exceed -- that of an offensive lineman’s (5,000-plus calories a day). Between the pizza, fried food and alcohol, it’s easy to eat and drink more than 2,000 calories just during the hours while the big game is on TV. Since chances are you won’t be out on the field burning off all that food, here are some substitutions to make a healthier and winning Super Bowl party menu.

9 Healthy Hummus Dips Worth Making Yourself

Creamy and spreadable, this Middle Eastern dish is a favorite tableside dip for good reason: It’s one of the few that both tastes good and is healthy. Typically made with chickpeas, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil and tahini, hummus offers a host of health benefits in addition to being delicious. Chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans) are a good source of fiber, healthy fats, protein and vitamins A and C. Mix in tahini (a creamy paste made from sesame seeds) for antioxidants as well as vitamin E to round out this healthful, addictive dip. Sure, you can buy packaged hummus, but once you have the classic hummus recipe down, you can mix up a batch in a snap that’s seasoned precisely to your liking. Whether scooped up with crunchy veggies and pita chips or used as a sandwich spread, try these hummus variations to spice up your next dinner party.
