The Super Bowl is one of the first obstacles of the year with your new lifestyle. Long gone are the days of gorging on chips and dip, pizza, hot wings, and copious amounts of booze. But you’ve changed your way of thinking so really this is a great chance to show everyone how your new lifestyle can be incorporated in any situation. 

If you’re attending a free-for-all party, there are a few ways to manage your way through. 

  • Eat beforehand. Fill yourself up on the things you know will keep you full throughout the party. 
  • Avoid alcohol. Unfortunately, one drink can affect your metabolism, add unwanted sugar and calories, and, usually, leads to another drink. 
  • Get in a nice, hard workout in before you go. It will boost your metabolism and prepare for the caloric intake. 
  • Bring your own snacks. This is where instant gratification comes in handy. You can find a multitude of alternate snacks online to suit your urges. Here are a few ideas.

White Bean Dip
A great alternative to hummus with a silkier texture and great accompaniment to your crudites.

Chipotle Chicken Sweet Potato Skins
A sweet and savory dish full of fiber.

Ginger and Garlic Shrimp
Packed with protein, full of flavor and a high concentration of the antioxidant astaxanthin, known to reduce inflammation 

No Bake Brownies
A gluten-free dessert with cocoa, which can lower blood pressure, an added bonus when it’s a close game!
