Delish switches to make on Super Bowl Sunday

 
Thought your days of too-full plates were over come Jan. 1? Think again. According to the Calorie Control Council, Super Bowl Sunday is the biggest day for overeating in America after Thanksgiving. But instead of seconds and thirds of mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie, chances are you’re loading up on snacks. Here’s how to lighten your plate without missing out on football’s fabbest feast.

 

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.
