Super Bowl Sunday is one of the biggest party nights of the year. Whether you are hosting a party or going to a friend’s house, you can enjoy the big game without consuming a lot of excess salt. Here are 9 tasty low sodium super bowl recipes that will be a touchdown at any watch party.
A couple of thoughts before we dig in. First, don’t be too hard on yourself. Super Bowl Sunday is a single day and so you might treat yourself to something you wouldn’t normally eat. For most folks a little splurge at a Super Bowl party is ok. Just make sure you eat clean the rest of the day.
Remember that portion control can play a huge role in keeping your salt intake down. Are you eying that chicken tender or maybe a mini-meatball? Keep your special treat to a small portion!
Lastly, don’t assume anything when it comes to sodium content. If you are in doubt, use your smartphone to check it out. There can be some sneaky salty items on the table. For example, many people assume that celery would be a good munchy because it is a vegetable. But the truth is celery has a fairly high salt content for a vegetable. Is celery better than salty potato chips? Absolutely. But just keep in mind it isn’t a sodium-free food.
If you are going out to a party, be a good guest and bring a dish to share. Make it a low sodium dish so you are guaranteed to have one item you can enjoy at the party. But shhh. Don’t tell anyone it is low sodium because they will be too afraid to try it. And we all know that low sodium food can taste just as good as “regular” food. So put it on the table and tell your friends afterward. They will be amazed! And if they don’t like it, you’ll have leftovers to take home. Win-win for you.
