Winning Super Bowl Menus
Whether you're a Patriots fan, a Rams fan, or you just like a good game, the Super Bowl is a lot more than football. It's a time for friends and family to come together, celebrate, and eat tasty food. If you're hosting or even just bringing along a snack to this year's party, VA has some recipes to keep you on track, so game day is not a huge loss of yardage for your health or your goals.
This year, surprise your Super Bowl guests with these healthier versions of party favorites. VA Dietitians have created Yummy Benefits Cookbooks (Yummy Benefits Cookbook and Yummy Benefits Cookbook II) that include lower-calorie appetizer and dessert recipes. Your guests will be surprised to know any changes have been made with these tasty options. If you're looking for more recipe substitutes, the MOVE! program has great tips (PDF).
