Putting a Healthy Kick on Super Bowl Snacks

Posted: Updated:

Millions of American's will watch the Super Bowl this weekend and millions will indulge in some tasty snacks.

Even though those snacks may taste good, they're not the best for you. Sanford Dietitian Bri Srnsky says, "The average Super Bowl watcher will consume 1,200 calories just in the snacks they'll eat on Super Bowl Sunday."

Eating un-healthy or over indulging can also come easy on Super Bowl Sunday "you're going to exceed your over energy needs for the day, especially since you're sitting a lot during the game," Says Srnsky.  

Srnsky also reminds that weight gain, higher blood pressure, higher cholesterol, even putting yourself at an increased risk for diabetes can all be factors in eating un-healthy.

A good tip for getting off the couch on Game Day is to put the food in a different room, so you have to get up and walk.

Srnsky even made a healthy and easy Greek Tzatziki dip on the Valley Today which you can enjoy for yourself on Super Bowl Sunday. We've got the recipe for you here:
