PWS Tip of the Week: Superbowl Sunday snack ideas
Superbowl Sunday is here, and we have a few ideas for fun and low-calorie snacks for the big game! Make fun sliders by replacing the buns with thick slices of tomato and either bean, veggie, or turkey burgers. Want stuffed potato skins but the calories are just too high? Simply replace the potato skin with half of a red or green pepper, stuff with smashed cauliflower and a little bit of shredded cheese, and you have a fun and low-calorie snack. Use the rest of the cauliflower for cauli buffalo bites — great texture and taste — a really good game day appetizer. Other fun snacks are veggie and feta kabobs, celery with low-fat sour cream and a little onion powder (this gives the crunch and taste of chips and dip). There is no reason game day can’t be fun with off-the-menu snacks that are also low in calories. We hope it’s a great game with fun food and good friends – regardless of which team you are rooting for!
