Of course, typical football fare -- nachos, burgers, pizza, wings -- isn't exactly known for being nutritious or wholesome. But there's no reason to sacrifice your guests' health in order to put out a great spread. Here are some tips for a festive but guilt-free celebration that everyone will love.
Super Bowl snacking is as much a part of game day as the actual game. Typical snacks are laden with calories -- not to mention the bottles of beer you're washing it all down with. Make the extra calories you eat this Sunday count with these more nutrient-dense and delicious snack ideas.
When it comes to creating a nutritious meal that is also packed with flavor, I love stuffing sweet potatoes. Not only are they loaded with vitamins and nutrients, but they make the perfect edible bowl for anything from turkey chili to the spicy black bean salsa.
Pizza has the potential to be ridiculously healthy -- it covers all the food groups! Hold the delivery this year and get creative in the kitchen. Try one of my favorite healthy spins on the not-so-greasy good stuff.
Besides watching the game and enjoying the commercials, Super Bowl snacking is one of the main attractions of game day. In fact, Americans consume more calories during the Super Bowl than nearly any other day during the year -- second only to Thanksgiving!
These vegetables and dips are usually served as part of a full meal, but in a non-Thai setting they work well as finger foods to go with drinks.
You want to be celebrating out with friends or having friends over to your house. Whether you're in a potluck scenario or just going to a bar to watch the game, I wanted to offer five great recipes -- three snacks, one dessert and one cocktail -- that are sure to please both your guests and your waistline.
At the parties you'll all be throwing this Sunday, give the chili a year off. Because 2012 is the year of the chowder: New England vs. Manhattan, clam vs. clam.
If you're going to be parked on the couch for several hours heavily invested (or not) in a sporting event, might as well have some great food to keep you company.

Following these simple steps is an easy way to keep you and your guests healthy. Food is a big part of this weekend and we want everyone to have a safe, healthy and fun Super Bowl Sunday. Enjoy the food and the game.

Calzones, which look like turnovers, are a lot easier to eat than a sub, no messy dressing dribbling all over your hands, and they are healthier too.
For the Super Bowl, we have no control over what happens on the field, of course, but the food is another story -- and I bring everything I've got to the table.
I still haven't decided who I'll be pulling for in this weekend's Super Bowl, but I do know what I'll be eating during the game: nachos. Here are some tips on making them.
