Super foods for your Super Bowl party
Chill out with a pot of chiliWhile you are watching the pre-pre-game show, which starts around noon, (the pre-game show starts around 3 p.m.), huddle together the ingredients for chili in the crockpot. What makes chili a super food? The beans. A ½ cup of cooked beans provides 10 percent or more of the recommended daily value for potassium and magnesium, nutrients that can help lower blood pressure. The soluble fiber in beans can help lower the bad LDL cholesterol in the body. Both high blood pressure and blood cholesterol increase the risk of heart disease the number one cause of death among Americans.
