It could be argued that the best part about watching the Super Bowl—beyond the halftime entertainment, clever ad debuts and (occasional) moments of on-field excitement—is getting to eat and drink whatever you want while you watch it. Even if you don’t care about the game or Lady Gaga, you can always dig into the bevy of greasy eats, from buffalo wings to chili, to chips and guac.
But perhaps you’re not ready to surrender your new year’s diet for one afternoon of leatherhead-sponsored indulgence?
There are ways to snack as you watch without sacrificing taste or nutrition. Tricia Williams, the executive chef and founder of Food Matters NYC, an organic customized food delivery service, shares guilt-free recipes that you can use on game day.
“We love to recreate people’s favorite foods in a healthful way,” says Williams. “I believe eating is a pleasure and you should enjoy [it].”
