The Super Bowl is second only to Thanksgiving Day when it comes to overeating.  Here are some tips to help you enjoy the party without ruining your clean eating.

  1. Earn that Meal.  Work out before the party, it will make you feel good no matter what happens on the field between the 49ers and the Ravens.   If you are in the DMV area, stop in for Sweat it Sunday Double Header Workout from 830 – 103;30AM.  Guaranteed way to earn your Super Bowl Meal!
  2. Come Prepared.  Eat well before your Super Bowl party.
  3. This instead of That. Prepare a healthy alternatives like the fun recipes below!  (see Raven Wings, Super Bowl Pizza and Touch Down Cookies)
  4. Push Ups Anyone?  If you’re feeling athletic and are getting hyper because the game is tight, do some push-ups in front of the TV to deal with the anxiety. It will throw off those friends cheering for the opposite team. The play will be over by the time they figure out what you’re doing.
  5. Enjoy the game!  Football is a sacred past time and a true spectacle of athletics so relish and enjoy it!
Go Ravens!
