Super Bowl Sunday ranks second, only to Thanksgiving, as the largest eating day in the United States. Statistics show that Americans consume around 64 million pounds of fat during the big game, primarily due to processed chips and frozen appetizers teeming with calories. Even if you indulge in homemade food, the usual suspects often contain high levels of cheese, and fattening condiments like mayonnaise and sour cream. Instead, consider making some of these healthier Super Bowl snacks for your football party. They are lightened-up versions of some favorite dishes, packed with all the flavor and fewer fats and calories. Game on!
