Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

It’s that time of year again. This Sunday, thousands of Americans will watch the Kansas City Chiefs face off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. While the teams spend this week practicing hard in preparation for the game, many people will spend their weekend prepping food and drinks for COVID-friendly Super Bowl parties.

For someone who is trying to optimize their health through nutrition, these parties can often pose quite a challenge. Whether you are trying to lose weight or cut harmful foods out of your diet, tables full of tempting food can be hard to turn down. So how can you enjoy your Super Bowl Sunday without reverting to old, unhealthy eating habits? We can help.


Nutrition

It can be easy to think that eating healthy means eating food that doesn’t taste good, but this does not have to be the case. Instead of getting premade foods in a box, try heading straight to your grocery stores' produce section to check out all the fresh ingredients available. Consider making a fruit salad to share with everyone, or grab some grass-fed protein to make some barbeque.

We recommend trying our Kansas City Air Fried BBQ Chicken or our Tampa Bay Garlic Shrimp with a side of grilled veggies – it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser. If you’re interested in a richer side dish, try our Tampa Bay Dairy Free Shrimp Bisque or the Kansas City Healthy Plaza 3 Steak Soup. Our recipes are always dairy and gluten free while being filled with helpful nutrients for your body.


Alcohol

Many people prefer to watch the big game with a cold beer or other high calorie alcoholic beverages. Many alcoholic drinks are filled with calories and hidden chemicals which can quickly add pounds to your waistline. Instead of indulging on sugar-filled beverages, try to focus on lower calorie options. You could make a Kansas City Tequila Lime Cocktail or a Tampa Bay Sugar-Free Mojito. Or enjoy a glass of red wine, which has been shown to have several health benefits when enjoyed in moderation. Whatever you decide on, make sure your drink choices don’t undo all of the good work you have done in improving your eating habits.


Food Addiction

For some people, eating just one special treat, snack food, or indulgent dessert can be extremely challenging. People who struggle with addictive eating tendencies and binge eating may have trouble reaching their health goals because once they start eating, it can be hard to stop. If this sounds familiar to your situation, then there are a few steps you can take to help with your success.

First, it is always important that you have an eating plan, especially in social situations where you may not have as much control over the food options. If you are gathering with friends or family for the Super Bowl, call the host and ask what they plan on serving. Offer to bring a few of your healthy favorites so that you know there will be food available that will help you reach your health goals instead of hindering them.

If you think it will be challenging for you to pass on some of the less healthy options, try eating before you go. If you show up to an event already full from a nutritious meal, you will be less likely to consume unhealthy options when you get there.

We hope these tips and tricks will help you have a healthy and happy Super Bowl Sunday. May the best team win!
