I totally agree. I'm also looking at it as a meal, not a grazing table. Thanks for your thoughts.

BECCIY: that is my lifesaver dip...even my 4 year old loves it!!!

We are doing veggies and greek dip, fresh fruit, 7 layer dip, chips and salsa and pizza rolls.

(I stick to the veggies, fruit, salsa and baked chips only)

I may splurge and have a beer..but I have made it one week and one day with no alcohol so I kinda want to keep my body cleanse going).

I'm bringing dip made with plain greek yogurt and dried ranch dressing with some veggies to dip and Special K crackers. When I made this dip the first time I was surprised at how good it was!

There are a lot of commercials on tv that scoff at the idea of vegetables at a Super Bowl party-- but the actual fact is, that people DO eat a lot of vegetables at those parties. In addition to eating a lot of everything else. Super Bowl Sunday is the second biggest food comsumption day in the US (after Thanksgiving).

I think for me, the biggest thing is to think of it as one meal, choose foods wisely and fill ONE plate. Is isn't a 3 hour graze.

If you make your own pizza crust you can really control your calories. I think a lot of people think pizza crust is daunting but Wolfgang Puck has an easy recipe you can find online.

You can then pick your toppings. I generally will skip a sauce and brush olive oil over the crust, add kosher salt, black pepper and parmesean. Then I top with toppings. I like fresh roma tomatoes and fresh milk mozzarella. When it comes out of the oven I will top with arugula (generous serving).

Of course, you can do what you like! That is just me, I like veggie pizzas mostly.

Edamame from the freezer section, roasted tomatoes with garlic and olive oil, roasted zucchini with lemon pepper, roasted chic peas, roasted okra, kale chips.

Those are really great ideas. For my DH we will be having pizza. My serving will be about 350 calories but I will have a big tossed salad and one light beer.

It will just be he and I so I don't have to deal with other party food.

Good luck. Wish I could be of more help.

Lots of veggies and fruit, cut up with appropriate dips and dressings. Olives and whole grain crackers. Making a main dish? Tacos are easy to make healthier, as are fajitas. You could check out sparkrecipes for snack and meal ideas that could be crowd pleasers.

Best of luck!
