Make a Super Plate For the Super Bowl

For some, the Super Bowl is an exciting time of cheering on their favorite team, love of the sport, or anticipation of the new commercials; for others, it’s all about the food! If you’re like me and can’t distinguish whether a team is part of the NFL or MLB and wouldn’t recognize any of the top athletes from any other face in the crowd, you can still celebrate with your friends and loved ones while staying mindful.

We always expect to break our healthy habits during gatherings, which are usually filled with tons of cheese, sugar, and salt. Many of us wish that there were healthier options to keep us satisfied while trying to figure out who is winning or what a 3<sup>rd</sup> down is, so why not be the person providing healthier options for everyone to enjoy? Sure, chili cheese nachos are quick, cheap, and easy to make, but so are many other nutrition-packed options.

If you want to bring a dish bursting with nutrition and flavor, here are a few ideas:
