Super foods for your Super Bowl party
Pizza is kingAccording to the National Restaurant Association, 48 million Americans will be ordering takeout or delivery foods, such as pizza, on Super Bowl Sunday. Can pizza morph into a super food? Absolutely. But, the toppings are the game changer. A slice of a meat lovers large pan pizza can have you engulfing close to 500 calories per slice. In comparison, a slice of a more traditional, thinner slice pizza topped only with veggies can cut those calories to a mere 290 calories per slice. Thats a lot of calories that can be sidelined before the half-time show.
Joans Tip: Because the pizza is loaded with veggies, you will likely end up eating fewer slices as fiber-rich veggies tend to fill you up before they fill you out.
