Delish switches to make on Super Bowl Sunday
Instead of…pre-made sour cream and onion dip
Try…stirring chopped scallions and a sprinkle of Old Bay seasoning into a container of low-fat or fat-free sour cream
Even better? Try…the same thing (or chopped herbs) in Greek yogurt
Instead of...potato chips
Try…tortilla chips, but the really good ones with just a few ingredients on the label. Think: Mission, Xochitl or Garden of Eatin’
Even better? Try…splitting your dips half-‘n’-half between raw veggies and chips or whole wheat crackers
Instead of…cheese doodles
Try…whole-wheat pretzels without the funky flavorings.
Even better? Try…homemade popcorn. A big pot, a bit of oil and some corn kernels—that’s all you need, and it’s way better than the microwave variety.
Instead of…handfuls of roasted peanuts
Try…peanuts in the shell, which eliminates the salts and sugar and slows ya down.
Even better? Try…Edamame. Buy a microwave steamer bag, cook according to directions, sprinkle with a smidge of sea salt and munch away.
Instead of…saucy, fried chicken wings
Try…baked chicken wings with dipping sauces on the side if ya really want them.
Even better? Try…steamed shrimp and cocktail sauce. Simple, tasty and protein-packed.
