    Put raw cauliflower in your purse , eat that and drink black coffee, with a glum look on your face!! That won't ruin your eating plan!!
    i like the dip and cocktail makeovers and will use 3 of them
  • Why not have a little of all your favorites. You can have potato chips anytime, so why waste your calories on those when there will be better foods we can slowly nibble another saying I've heard is this: Halve it and you can have it!!! Think about that one!!
  • Hillshire farms lean oven roasted turky breast smoky chipolte rolls with lettuce. YUM
  • Thanks for putting all these resources in one place. I'm saving this for MY SuperBowl - the Oscars!
  • Turkey burgers and homemade potato salad......
  • I'm going to make a stromboli with ham, cheese, onions, pepperoni whatever. You can use low fat items for your filling. I use philo dough for the pastry to wrap it in and slice it up. It is always a big hit and so easy to make. You can also use pizza dough or Pillsbury biscuit dough.

    Chili is always a favorite. I might serve it over baked nacho chips which I realize is only slighty better than the Fritos I grew up with.
  • I am lucky do not have to watch the game, my husband hates sports on tv. I have never seen a super bowl game, so no company and no extra food to prepare
  • I use fat free cream cheese, dice up green, red, and yellow peppers, red onion, broccoli and tomato, then I put all of it in my food processor with a little skim milk, and that's the dip. then I get bagel chips (they are baked not fried) and that's my "chips and dip" for super bowl sunday...enjoy
    Always meatball subs and finger food. this year all Cajun food!!!
  • always chili - this year I'm making a shrimp verecruz slimmed down. Hope its a hit. If so i'll post the recipe..

  • SEANS53
    i gotta have a pot of slow cooker chili using lean turkey burger for the meat, then just being mindful of my portions.
    I can't stand football, but I'm dragged to my husband's grandmother's house every year for this stupid game! So I think I'm going to make the Buffalo Chicken dip recipe from SparkRecipes; that's always a big hit. Plus it will give me an option over the disgustingly unhealthy (and not particularly well-cooked) food my husband's grandmother will try to shove down my throat!

    Then again, if we get as much snow here in Philly as they say we will, I might not have to worry about it at all...
  • It's just the 3 of us, but I'm planning on a pulled pork sandwich recipe that I found on and broccoli slaw for dinner.
