Serving up a Healthy Super Bowl

I must confess, that I grew up watching Rugby in South Africa and that your game of Football was brand new to me when we emigrated ten years ago. I have come to appreciate just how much Americans love their football tailgates! Super Bowl Sunday is around the corner. It is estimated that anywhere from 2400 - 5000 calories can be eaten by folks indulging in their favorite football fare. Here are a few healthy additions I made for the television segment I did for WIS-TV this week to show viewers how to score with healthier snacks that can be just as delicious with fewer calories. We want to watch linebackers - not eat like them! I always encourage folks to focus on adding more healthy foods to their menu’s. I made a delicious Polenta pizza with a basil pesto topped with veggies and sun-dried tomatoes. This proved to be a winner with all who tasted it! It can also be served with a fresh salad.
