February 5th at 6:30 pm EST, the New York Giants and the New England Patriots will go head to head to see who wins Super Bowl XLVI! As you know, since my family lives in New England, I’ll be cheering on the Patriots. Let’s a take a poll to see who the Maryland Momma readers rooting for! Leave a comment with which team you want to win!
Now usually for Super Bowl, the parties are filled with burgers, fried chicken, nachos, and any other delicious but most likely unhealthy snacks. Try some of these quick tips to make your Super Bowl snacks just a tad healthier.
- Forget the cheese or nachos! Why not try hummus or your favorite chickpea spread? Replace the chips with whole wheat cracks.
- When it comes to burgers, why not use Ground White Turkey meat, or mix black beans into your beef before making the patties. Get rid of the burger buns! Try using a pita pocket instead!
- Want a loaded back potato? Try a sweet potato instead! Skip the butter as the sweet potato already has that sweet taste to it.
- Opt for grilled wings, or skinless.
Hope everyone has a Happy Super Bowl Sunday!
Don’t forget to comment on who you want to win!

Great tips! Thanks for sharing! There are so many different types of hummus you can make. That’s my fave with semi-homemade pita chips.

Baked wings are pretty yummy too!
good tips – even something simple like wheat crackers makes a big difference!
Great ideas!! I agree…i love sweet potatoes!!
Great tips!!! All the kids are at different events so it’s just hubby and I. I need to come up with something. ;)
Great tips! And I don’t really care too much who wins since my packets aren’t playing. But since the giants beat them they better do well!
