With all the hoopla over Superbowl, the myriad of party and menu preparations – those of us sticking to the Core Program might inquire – WHAT CAN I EAT???
Knowing that not all of us are on the same exact parameters – these are my suggestions. If you have questions, text your trainer. Also – based on your consumption, you can have a some of this and some of that. Keep in mind portion sizing.
White Chicken Chile – no beans, and add chopped zucchini to get those veggies in! Serve in a bowl with shredded cabbage and cilantro.
Spiced Edamame – see the recipe here
Crudites with “Ranch Dip” – blend 1% cottage cheese with ranch dressing envelope till smooth. Add water to thin as necessary.
Celery and “Wings” with Walden Farms Blue Cheese Dressing – cut your chicken in “tender” sized pieces. Mix 2 egg whites till very foamy. Pat chicken dry – season with salt and pepper. Dip in egg whites, then in panko bread crumbs. Arrange on a baking sheet you have lightly sprayed, bake at 450 for 15 minutes till done. Brush with hot wing sauce.
Beef Fajitas – you might splurge on your cheese here, and salsa. Remember grilled zuchinni, mushrooms, peppers and cilantro go great with fajitas.
I’m staying away from anything sweet – too much temptation and SUGAR there. Sorry folks – I’m not venturing there yet!
Drinks – I am loving sparkling water with things added. Try adding lemon peel, lime peel, grapefruit peel, ginger slices, and mint. My favorite so far has been a muddle of mint and ginger with a few red peppercorns. Kind of an Asian Mocktail. I also love the Crystal Light Mojito – try freezing it in an ice cube tray, and pouring sparkling water over.
Hope this helps! Enjoy the game and stick to the program!
