Planning a Superbowl Party? You’re not alone. 125 million Americans will host a Superbowl Sunday gathering, marking the day on which we eat the second-greatest amount of food. $55 million is expected to be spent on food for the big game and an estimated 10 million man-hours in food preparation. The average time it will take to consume all of that food? 15 minutes. Most likely before the first touchdown is scored.
To help in your quest to be a health-conscious host, here’s a “lineup” of good-for-you options:
- Start off with delicious and flavorful appetizers like Loaded Sweet Potato Skins, Spinach and Artichoke Dip with fresh chopped veggies, and Spicy Shrimp Boats.
- At half time serve up mini versions of old-school favorites like these Sloppy Joe Sliders and tasty Cheddar Cheeseburgers and Beef and Blue Cheese Quesadillas.
Have fun, enjoy the game and don’t be one of the 6% of Americans that will call in sick on Monday.
