A Snack Showdown: Healthy vs. Unhealthy

Did you know the Super Bowl is one of the biggest calorie fests of the year? The Super Bowl is known as the second largest day for food consumption in the U.S., next to Thanksgiving, according to the USDA. Between chips, dips, wings, and pizza it can be difficult to blitz bad tendencies. That’s why we have compiled a list of touchdown-worthy, healthy snack alternatives, so you can enjoy game day without worrying about packing on extra pounds.

1. Dips and Veggies – Start the party off right with a healthy dip accompanied by celery, carrots, and tomatoes. Try our Buffalo Chicken Dip as it only contains 61 calories per serving, as compared to Franks Red Hot buffalo sauce which contains 153 calories.

2. Nacho Mac & Cheese – It’s not a party without Mac & Cheese! Make a small bowl of our Nacho Mac & Cheese as it only contains 140 calories per serving, as compared to Kraft Mac & Cheese which is 350 calories per serving.

3. Low-Carb Pizza – Skip delivery this year and try baking a healthier option. One slice of pepperoni pizza from Pizza Hut is packed with 630 calories while our recipe contains 298 calories (for half of a pizza). It’s simple to make and only takes 25 minutes to cook.

4. Zippers – Amaze your friends with this healthy chip alternative that comes in two bold flavors BBQ and Sour Cream & Herb. Both only contain 100 calories as compared to other chip companies.
