Hi folks - seems like it's a holiday on Super Bowl Sunday. :dizzy: Some of you might be going to parties or having friends over. Whether it's the game or the commercials (my favorite part) - What are your plans to make it a fun and healthy day?

Actually I don't know if I'd watch if DH didn't love football so much. I am really a college football lover - not pro.

I have:

-Imported nonalcoholic beer (I don't drink alcohol, but I like the taste now and then. But each is about 90 calories)
-Doritos, divided into single-serving sizes (140 cals each)
-Diet sodas
-Celery sticks (I love celery!)
-Easy Cheese (80 cals/2TBS)
-Salad
-Extra lean beef burgers (no buns) (200 cals each)
-Single-serving sizes of cashews, almonds, peanuts.

And that should more than get us through the game! :cheer2:

I have turkey chilli in the slow cooker, making homemade hummus, with whole wheat pitas, roasted veggies, air pop popcorn, choc milk for the kids, perrier for me, and a veggie tray.

Since the Eagles didn't make it to the big game we are not doing anything. :^: We will watch, but there will not be any special food...just a normal food day. Of course I need to hit the grocery store at some point so I have something to put on the table. :D

If you want wings the way to do it is get the non-breaded non-fried kind. The standard buffalo sauce is basically Tabasco, low carb, and the wings themselves are high protein. Costco has a mesquite smoked wing that have been smoked, not fried, you can heat them in your oven and they have no sauce just some peppered seasoning.
My plan is to have;
10 wings 600
Carrot and celery sticks
Lite ranch for dip 100
2 cans of Guinness 420
and if I'm still hungry and cant take it anymore some light microwave popcorn. 150
1270 roughly I can still have my slim shake for breakfast and a granola bar for lunch.
Go Cardinals!

We're going to a party where they have a chili cookoff...I made white beans and ground chicken "chili" to enter. I figure I'll have something to eat but don't count on winning any prizes. LOL. I'm also bringing my own salad and celery sticks. Sad...but most of the time when I go to these things there's nothing for me to eat. I'm a cheap date...I bring my own food. :p Oh, also bringing my water bottle and lots of Crystal Light. That's my plan.

My strategy is to not be a huge sports fan. It has worked well in the past. lol.

I am not about sports at all but of course wouldn't mind a win for the steelers, being in pittsburgh and all. ;)

it's fun to watch the city burn! *LOL* (I live right off campus ;) )

Lucky for me, Sunday's are our off plan days. I never go crazy on these days but I'll have a few treats. We're actually only doing a sub ring and soup Some Roasted Red Pepper and Basil dip with cut up veggies and pretzels, of course there will be the usual, bad stuff, but I'll stay away.


Good Luck to everyone and GO STEELERS!

We're not doing anything. I am making food for the week, lunches & whatnot & cleaning since it's a balmy 30 degrees. :)

We're just staying home. Dh is on call...so we didn't commit to any "big' plans! Yeah! Anyways, I plan to make some guac and these killer good black bean quesadillas with thin corn tortillas and 2% fat cheese, loaded with bell peppers, red onion, garlic, tomatos... Nothing dangerous.

Unless DH comes home from the gorcery store with something bad...

My DH's fav team (the Eagles) didn't make it so he's probably going to watch a little bit of the game...no one is coming over so no worries :)

My church, instead of the usually Sunday night services, each Sunday school class host a party and we have devotional time at half time. This year, my class is coming to my house. I'm not going yo worry about what I am going to eat today. I had low cal healthy breakfast, a lowcal snack bar, and just had a late lunch of mostly veggies. Im filling pretty stuffed so probably wont be eating too much tonight. I made pulled pork, Carolina sauce, Alabama white sauce and store bought regular barbecue sauce. I also made Pavlova(aussie desert) I dont know what every one else is bringing.

for us, it's 1 day out of the year, so there's no way I'm telling a dozen big beefy men that "today we're having hummus and carrots yay!!" hahahha I"M going to be eating well today, have everything planned out (big salad with sliced chicken and a crusty ww roll) and all the snacky treats i'm making for the boys is all stuff I don't particularly care for so no temptation!

Bacon-wrapped scallops
Smokin' hot chicken wings
nachos & cheese & jalepenos and tequila salsa
one-bite meatball subs

hahah they're animals, so i very well might just open the door, throw in some RAW meat and slam the door & run for my life :D heheheheh

My bf is watching, and he woke up wanting to get Super Bowl snacks. I caved and we picked up a few things:

homemade subs with turkey breast, tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, low fat cheese and low fat mayo and mustard.

fresh chips with fresh guacamole

fajitas for dinner with whole wheat wraps, low fat sour cream and tons of veggies.

Somehow it turned out to be a days worth of foods for one game, not too sure how that happened! But I feel good about the choices, I'm just doing smaller portions than him!
