Let’s be real – we don’t expect you to resist all the food temptations, especially those amazing chip dips. So, substitute plain Greek yogurt for sour cream in the recipes for a protein boost, or cut up some fresh veggies to dip to save some calories! Try this protein-rich Kale & Parmesan Greek Yogurt Dip.

2.      Pump It Up at Halftime

Halftime in a regular-season NFLgame is just 12 minutes, but throw in performances by Coldplay and Queen Bey, must-see commercials, and a dose of game analysis, and you’re looking at a 30-minute break. So, what better to do than a quick, at-home workout? We’ve got you covered.

  • Plank, 60 seconds
  • 20 Squats
  • 10 Push-ups
  • 10 Lunges (per leg)
  • 10 Tricep dips
  • Side Planks, 30 seconds each side

Repeat 3x

3.      Enjoy Yourself

An annual event that gathers friends, family and sports fans is supposed to be fun. Try the taco dip.Have a loaded potato skin. Snag a couple of chicken wings. Allow yourself to enjoy these treats in moderation. Remember, it’s all about balance.

Happy Super Bowl 50, everyone! Enjoy the game.
