Super Sunday is here! Here’s some suggestions for enjoying yourself this Sunday without feeling guilty on Monday morning.
From Montana Meals:
Traditional Super Bowl fare – items like meaty chili, cheesy nachos, deep dish pizza, and chicken wings- tend to be high in calories & low in nutritional value. A few modifications, however, can turn even the worst of these foods into a nutritionally acceptable meal. Take nachos for example. Rather than simply loading tortilla chips with pounds of cheese, try this– go easy on the cheese, and instead add fiber-rich black or pinto beans, colorful veggies like bell peppers, tomatoes, green onions, canned green chilies, and cilantro, and as well as some chopped cooked chicken breast. Add in a little healthy fat with homemade guacamole and then top with some nonfat plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Sounds tasty, right?

From Montana Moves:
I like big events, I like football, and I like food. So it’s safe to say that I love a good Super Bowl Party! Cristin gave some great advice up there in her portion of this post. However, I know myself well, and I can tell you that on Sunday evening, I probably won’t be following Cristin’s 80/20 Rule of Moderation, which is Rule #1 of her Six Nutritional Tenets . Knowing that I’ll have more calories than normal going in on Sunday night, I’m planning a preemptive strike for that morning, which I’ve decided will be a long run up Hyalite Canyon—I’m going to burn a lot of calories! It’s going to be mild and sunny across much of the state Sunday (or so they say) 😉 so if you have the opportunity, get out and be active doing something you love in one of your favorite places, and then go to your Super Bowl Party knowing you’ve earned a few extra calories. Then just get back to your normal healthy eating habits on Monday.
