myFM: Super Bowl Recipe

As the San Francisco 49ers face off in a Super Bowl rematch against the Kansas City Chiefs, Americans are expected to consume a whopping 1.45 billion pounds of chicken wings, according to theNational Chicken Council.

Loaded Smashed Potatoes

Super Bowl has to be one of the most calorie-dense days of the year - maybe next to or more than Christmas even. The pizza, nachos, wings, subs, chili, meatballs, pulled pork, spinach and artichoke dip, and guacamole by the boatload. 

Can you believe that1.45 billion pounds of chicken wings will be consumed on Super Bowl Sunday alone–that's more than 1.25 BILLION individual wings. Oh and beer. By the pitcher or keg at least! Why didn’t salad ever make it to the list of SuperBowl foods? *ducking as you throw your wings at me* 

How can you healthify your Super Bowl Sunday? Load up on the celery and carrot sticks, ease up on the ranch or blue cheese dip, bake your own wings by tossing them in a herb rub instead of loading on the sauce.

Nachos can have some veggies piled into them and while we know guac is good for you, have that dip and hummus on offer rather than the spinach and avocado dip.
