Are you planning a Super Bowl Party? It’s the most celebrated football game on the planet so it’s hard to avoid even if you’re not a fan. I look forward to the food. It’s the one time of year when we throw caution to the wind and enjoy our favorite (usually very unhealthy) snack food. What would a Super Bowl be without wings and Fritos with clam dip, our personal favorites? We usually have an Italian roll or pizza, too. Once I went to a party where everyone was asked to bring their number one secret worst favorite snack food. Mine was potted meat on saltines! It’s a family favorite with an airplane-size bottle of Crown Royal.

No more of this terrible snacking for me—at least not in the daylight in front of other people. I’m trying hard to clean up my bad habits and make things a little better for all these internal organs I carry around. This isn’t a new year’s resolution. I gave up on that years ago. My husband and I began this journey about nine months ago in an effort to be healthier. It’s a slow process, and there has been some backsliding, but we feel better than we have in a long time. If you’re looking for a healthy way to eat your way through a good party, put this on your menu. It would also be great as a main course over rice. Serves 8-10 as a snack: serves 4 as a main course.
