More Healthy Hints

Rounding out your big game spread with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables is a great way to give your guests something crunchy and low-calorie to enjoy. It also makes it a more well-balanced spread. Use cut veggies for dips, add a green salad or fruit platter, and dress your sandwiches or subs with lots of veggie toppings.

Remember to stay hydrated with non-calorie beverages, like water or unsweetened iced tea. If you’re enjoying an alcoholic beverage or brew, keep in mind that these contribute calories and reduce both your blood sugar and your inhibitions. Meaning, you might find yourself tempted to snack more.

Current health recommendations for daily alcohol intake differ for men and women. Men are recommended to have no more than two drinks a day, while its suggested that women drink a single alcohol beverage a day.
