MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – When it comes Super Bowl Sunday, people love to chow down.
A recent survey found people eat all day — most without caring about counting calories.
But what if you are looking for some healthier options?
WCCO talked to Cub Foods and got plenty of great recipes you can serve up without compromising flavor.
First things first when trying to watch what you eat — pay attention to the portions. Controlling how much you put in your mouth is just as important as what you eat. A little taste of the fattier foods is OK as long as you mix in a good number of low calorie options.
But if you like to snack through the whole game, try making alternatives to game-day favorites.
Make dips with low fat and fat free options of sour cream, mayo or cream cheese.
Choose crackers and chips that are baked or made with high fiber and whole grains.
Popcorn can also be a great healthy snack. Boost the flavor of fat free popcorn by spraying with a non-fat spray then sprinkling with cayenne pepper. The cayenne actually speeds up your metabolism and decreases your appetite.
