5 ways to keep your Super Bowl party munching under control


The biggest football party of the year is today! Grab the chips ‘n’ dip girl, and don’t forget the wings ‘n’ things—we’re ready to dig in. But, uh, not quite so fast. Keep these five dos and don’ts in mind when you hit the refreshment table, and you’ll be munching healthy. Well, healthier.

 

Don’t over-dip

You can totally have your dip and keep your day relatively healthy. But when you dip, be smart about it. You don’t need a huge dollop on each chip. Limit it to just enough to be able to taste the creamy goodness. Think: Light covering rather than drowning.

 

Balance out the bad

If there is a platter of fruit and veggies available, fill half your plate with that and load the other half with whatever else you want to eat. The fiber in produce will fill you up, so you won’t go back to the deep fried wings when you’re feeling hungry, plus they’re packed with all sorts of good-for-you vitamins and minerals.

 

Think small

Eat off a small, appetizer-size plate instead of a whopping dinner-size plate. Research says that we’re tempted to fill our plate to the max—and that we’re conditioned to clear it, even if we’re full long before the plate if empty. Want seconds? Go for it.

 

Stick it to soda

Limit yourself to one can of soda for the night. After that, restrict yourself to ice water with a squirt of lemon or lime if you’re craving flavor. It’s an easy way to get your fizz fix…but not add on needless calories and lots of sugar you won’t even notice.

 

Share your sweets

Grab your gals and hit the dessert spread together. Pile one plate high with all the things you want to try, then share it among the whole group. That way, you get to taste everything without gobbling down tons of cookies, slices of cake and more.
