Super Bowl Sabotage Tips:

  • Eat a solid breakfast with lean protein and good carbs.
  • Make sure to eat at least one serving of vegetables at lunch and during your main game day meal.
  • Don’t graze all day. Set specific times for meals that you eat. You will feel so much better and the food will taste so much better.
  • Drink water, water, water.
  • Try to bake or sauté everything and avoid fried foods as much as possible.
  • Only eat off a plate. Don’t allow yourself to grab handfuls out of bowls, bags or platters.
  • Use tons of vegetables wherever possible. Example: put a boat load of frozen spinach in spinach dip along with sour cream and plain Greek yogurt.
  • Shrimp cocktail is a great appetizer or main meal side. All you have to do is by a frozen bag a cooked shrimp, run the shrimp under cold water until thawed, arrange on a platter and enjoy with cocktail sauce.
  • Make your own pizza instead of ordering. Find a recipe for pizza crust or focaccia and load it up with veggies before baking.
