Game-time Go-To's

 

Because of all the game day celebrations this time of year, you may be rethinking your New Year's Resolutions. Don't panic! With a few simple game day go-to snack and meal ideas, you can kick off the big game the healthy way.  

Chips and dip may sound great at your celebration, but extra pounds around your waistline definitely do not.  If you aren't hosting the party, offer to bring a dish to the celebration. This is one of the easiest ways to ensure you will have a healthful snack option. Try using a reduced-fat mayonnaise in your favorite dip, such as Hellman's® Light Mayonnaise to cut back on calories and increase your intake of heart healthy fats.

Although the term "salad" typically refers to healthful fare, pot luck "salads" can be loaded with extra fat and calories. A simple way to enjoy your favorite salads and still be true to your New Year's Resolutions is to use a light salad dressing, such as Wish-Bone® Light! Western® Dressing. With only 70 calories and two grams of fat per serving, it's sure to be a winning play during the big game.
No time to make a dish from scratch? No problem! Try one of KNORR™ side dishes instead. KNORR™ has a wide assortment of side dishes that are sure to appeal to anyone's taste buds.  With KNORR's™ Cajun Sides Red Beans & Rice, you can enjoy the hearty taste of the South for under 300 calories. You'll also get 16% of your recommended daily dose of fiber to keep you full and satisfied.

Touchdown cheers may leave you feeling hoarse by half time, but Lipton® has just the solution. Try sipping Lipton® Green Tea with Citrus to soothe your voice and give you antioxidant power to cheer through the second half. Tea is also a great way to stay hydrated, so you can stay focused and alert
Whether you are hosting the party or just attending for the big game, your game day celebrations don't need to leave you feeling defeated.  A few simple healthy options can help you cheer on your favorite team while sailing to a nutrition touchdown.
