NO, NO, NO, NO, NO…  YES, YES, YES, YES, YES… Depending on which team you’ll be rooting for on Super bowl Sunday, those two words may be the only thing coming out of your mouth. But judging by the usual Super bowl Sunday menu items, the food entering your mouth is what you should be saying “No” or “Yes” to.

When did Super bowl Sunday become a holiday? It feels like people are cooking and ordering more food on this day then they would on Christmas or even Thanksgiving. Yes, the Super bowl received 106.5 million viewers last year, but we can give you 106.5 million reasons why you should avoid eating 13 Buffalo wings, 6 slices of pizza, 3 hamburgers, 2 bags of chips and drinking half a case of beer. Well, maybe not 106.5 million reasons but, we’ve found some really great recipes for your Super Bowl party!

We munch and crunch our way through the game.. But, are the French fries, wings, soda/beers really worth it when your team is finally at the end zone?

Swap your greasy snacks to make sure you’re always WINNING!
