Just The Rules for SUPERBOWL Clean Eating PARTY FOODS that WON'T bust the waist

Defeat Unhealthy Super Bowl Foods with Tosca Reno’s Just the Rules for Eating Clean

One of America’s favorite pastimes is gathering for the Super Bowl, which often involves a spread of unhealthy food options. Spending time with friends and cheering for your favorite team should not add to your waistline. New York Times best-selling author Tosca Reno, makes eating clean easy, even at parties, with tips taken from her newest book, Just the Rules. This pocket sized guide is packed with helpful tips and trims everyday food decisions into a simple guide to eating clean.

Just the Rules for Your Super Bowl Party
Rule #8 – Color Up: Super Bowl junk is often a sea of fatty beige foods. Colorful foods are filled with more nutrients and flavor than bland, monotonous, processed foods. Opt for a rainbow of colors on your plate, which offers numerous health benefits.

Rule #12 – Smaller Portions, Smaller Pants: A festive atmosphere can often create an eating frenzy, which leaves you feeling blah. It’s okay to enjoy an array of foods, just eat smaller portions. Remember one serving of lean protein is the size of your palm; one serving of complex carbohydrates from whole grain is the size of your cupped hand; and one serving of complex carbs from fruit and vegetables is two hands cupped together.

Rule #13 – Fletcherize and Swallow: Do you ever fill your plate, only for the food to disappear moments later? Gobbling food is a common disorder in our fast-paced society. Remind yourself to sloooooooow down, eating is not a race. Eating slowly will not only allow you to enjoy your food, but will help you determine when you’re full and help aid in digestion.

Rule #23 – Good Carbs, Bad Carbs: Carbs can be confusing, and are often given a bad rap! Stay away from ‘bad’ grocery store, processed carbs and stick to ‘good’ carbs like fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grain.

Sweet Potato Oven Fries – You’ll feel like you’re cheating when you take a bite of these delicious, crispy, sweet potato wedges with just the right amount of seasoning.

Eat-Clean Tuna Burger – The Eat-Clean Tuna Burger is juicy, flavorful and provides the fun of eating a burger, without the guilt of unwanted fat.

Vegetarian Chili – Chili is a Super Bowl favorite, and this version packs a hearty and satisfying flavor, but is fully vegetarian.

That's definitely an oxymoron-ic statement. I don't think that you are even allowed to put those 2 phrases together in the same sentence, "Superbowl" and "Clean eating"! But I see you at least tried to make a healthy Superbowl party possible.
