Super Bowl on Sunday



although super bowl is not an official national holiday in the United States, Super Bowl Sunday is the day with the largest snack consumption in the year, second only to Thanksgiving in the overall food consumption. However, unlike Thanksgiving, at least for most of the celebrators, a balanced meal is at the heart of Thanksgiving, and the four main meals of Super Bowl Sunday are French fries and dipping sauce, pizza, chicken wings and beer. A football fan's calorie consumption on match day can easily match that of an attacking winger (more than 5000 calories per day). Between pizza, fried food and alcohol, it's easy to eat and drink more than 2000 calories in a few hours of watching a big game on TV. Since you can't burn all the food on the court, here are some alternatives to making a healthier, more successful Super Bowl party menu.

1. Chicken: according to the national chicken Committee, the super bowl has the most chicken wings in the year on Sunday. During the Super Bowl Weekend, the consumption of chicken wings exceeded 1.23 billion. Because they are usually battered and fried, chicken wings are one of the foods we recommend for you to put on the bench. They look small, but if they're bread and fried, each one absorbs about 100 calories. Instead, grill, grill, or grill chicken tenderloin (made of boneless, peeled chicken breast) on a skewer in a hot sauce. Without ranch or blue cheese condiments, chicken wings are incomplete, but because these condiments contain 125-150 calories per 2 tablespoons, choose a light condiment, or make your own wings with skim pure Greek yogurt instead of yogurt.

2. Avocado sauce: good fat, not bad fat. Avocado sauce has always been the most popular food at game day parties. Fans are expected to eat more than 100 million pounds of avocado sauce on Sunday's Super Bowl. All guava is great because avocado is nutritious and provides heart intelligence in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. But be sure to choose a recipe that appeals to vegetables such as tomatoes, onions, corn or chili for more nutritious charm. Because avocados are naturally rich and creamy, give up avocado sauce recipes and call for mayonnaise or sour cream. One (2 tbsp) portion of avocado sauce purchased by most stores contains 120 calories and 10 grams of fat.

3. Shrimp: barbecue, not fried. Whether frozen or fresh, you can't go wrong with shrimp appetizers at parties, as long as they're not fried. It's rich in lean protein. Each one only contains 8 calories. You can eat shrimp rolls or roasted shrimp with garlic. If you're looking for a delicious shrimp recipe, you'll score touchdown points in the super bowl on Sunday, and give our tomato and avocado baked shrimp a try (recipe below). It's easy to make, low in calories, and a heart healthy monounsaturated fat is extracted from avocado rich in cream. Or use a standard shrimp cocktail to keep it simple. Like other tomato condiments, cocktail sauce has a low calorie content (only 18 calories per tablespoon), so it's the best ingredient for those prawns.

4. Dip: Greek yogurt rather than yogurt can ruin a healthy diet faster than any party food. Standard popular flavors may be cheese or cream, but they also add more than 100 calories and 10 grams of extra fat (2 tablespoons) per meal. There are better alternatives, such as white or black bean dip, hummus, or simply plain Greek yogurt instead of yogurt in your dip recipe. A cup of plain sour cream contains 445 calories and 45 grams of fat. By contrast, a cup of skimmed Greek yogurt contains about 130 calories and zero fat. For each cup of Greek yoghurt, you will subtract 315 calories and 45 grams of fat from the recipe.

5. French fries: baked French fries instead of French fries are the most popular snack at Super Bowl parties. Based on 150 calories per meal and 9-10 grams of fat, chips will contribute about 27 billion calories to fans' total calorie consumption on match day. To help control the amount of calories in your fries, choose baked ones. For example, a baked potato chip (1 ounce or about 20 slices) contains about 120 calories and 3 grams of fat. In order to make the food healthier, you can also provide a large number of fresh cut vegetables, so that your guests can eat the chips with vitamins, rather than the empty calories of the chips.

6. Mexico 7-layer dip: less fat and processing ingredients

traditional Mexico 7-layer dip sauce includes many high calorie ingredients, such as cheese, sour cream and fried beans, but you can make the game more healthy through some defensive actions: first, instead of fat rich fried beans, first cut a layer of cut lettuce, then add the following layers in order: spicy black Beans, guacamole, salsa, chopped olives, scallions and some plain Greek yoghurt topped with chopped cilantro. Serve with a tortilla. It tastes just as delicious, but it's slimy and healthier.

7. Ranch dip sauce: ranch dip sauce is the side dish of Super Bowl chicken wings and chips. But most ranch dip recipes are made with sour cream, so every 2 tablespoons contains about 100 calories and 10 grams of fat. You can easily replace yogurt with white cheese and Greek yogurt to make rich, thick and creamy ranch dips to increase protein filling and reduce saturated fat.

8. Popcorn: popcorn is a Super Bowl snack. It's a whole grain and high-quality carbohydrate. You can feel it well. It's also low in calories, with 100 calories per 3 cups of popcorn. In addition, studies have shown that popcorn has a stronger effect on short-term satiety (our satiety factor) than chips. This makes popcorn less hungry for those who want toIt's a great choice for people who control their energy intake and ultimately their weight. Instead of using chemical and calorie filled margarine seasonings, mix them with store bought natural seasonings or use your own herbs and seasonings to season popcorn, turning this whole grain energy snack from a daily food into a delicacy.

9. Nuts: during the super bowl, fans will eat 2.5 million pounds of nuts instead of shelled ones. As eating while watching TV is related to overeating, pistachios in the shell have a unique advantage over other nuts; their calories are lower than many other nuts, with nearly 6 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber per ounce (49 nuts). More importantly, the simple process of removing nuts from the shell also makes pistachio a more attentive snack. In a behavioral nutrition study published in the journal appetite, snacking on pistachios consumed 41% less calories than eating on pistachios; however, although the subjects who ate on nuts consumed less calories, there was no difference in satiety or satisfaction between the two groups. Studies have shown that empty shells can serve as a visual reminder of how much you eat and help you avoid eating too much.

correlation: nuts rich in magnesium and potassium. Alcohol: in the hours before the super bowl, beer sales in grocery stores, convenience stores and liquor stores amounted to 50 million cases of beer, not cocktails, so beer became one of the unofficial foods in the super bowl. The good news is that there are many lightweight and ultra lightweight options that make it easier for calorie conscious consumers to enjoy some beer. You can find some super light beers as low as 55 calories, many of which are about 100 calories a bottle. Regular beer has 150 calories per 12 ounces. Drinking distilled alcohol can reduce about 100 calories per 1.5 oz, but this does not include the calories that juice or soda water is often used to make mixed drinks.

11. Sandwiches: customized rather than one size fits all, undersea sandwiches are definitely the healthiest main course, especially compared to other Super Bowl favorites, such as pizza, wings and pigs wrapped in blankets, as long as you stay away from meatballs, bacon or cheesecake as your fillings. You can make your own dessert, or you can bring a sandwich party tray and let the guests make their own - either way, your plate should include a lean cold plate, cheese and many vegetable additives, such as lettuce, baked mushrooms, tomatoes and onion slices, roasted red pepper, ground carrots and pickles. It's best to use condiments, including mustard, mayonnaise and pesto. When it comes to bread, choose wholemeal rolls or bagels as much as possible.

12. Pepper: instead of the ordinary ground beef, you can change the traditional pepper from flab to fab. Many chili recipes require minced beef, cheese and sour cream, all of which contain saturated fat. Replace ground beef with extra lean salads, bison or turkey or chicken (white meat only). Our delicious chili recipe contains beans rich in fiber and protein. Studies have shown that regular consumption of beans helps improve cardiovascular health and weight loss. In addition, beans (especially the white variety used in our formula) help prevent spikes and troughs in blood sugar. Let's try a game of Japanese cuisine with our waist friendly chili peppers. It's definitely a winner! The extra stimulation of Tabasco sauce even helps to speed up metabolism.

13. Pizza: thin skin instead of ordinary skin. Of course, good, sticky, cheese pizza is a classic Super Bowl party, but think twice before you eat one piece. Two traditional 14 inch cheese pizzas, 625 calories, 24 grams of fat, and no meat ingredients. The good news is that there's a simple way to cut calories and polyurethane and make the most of pizza's nutrition without sacrificing taste: order a thin crust (if you have whole grains), half cheese and twice fiber rich vegetables. If you do, you can enjoy one tablet with less than 200 calories.

instead of indulging in calorie rich cheesecake or chunky biscuits and brownies to satisfy your game day sweets, try these delicious, partially conscious thin dark chocolate brownie bites, made of coffee and unsweetened applesauce. A typical 2-inch Brownie cube contains about 240 calories and 10 grams of fat. The calories, fat and sugar content of these chocolate blocks are significantly reduced, and they can only be controlled within the range of 79 calories at a time.
