Healthy Super Bowl Food? Marlene Koch Believes It's Possible
The 'Eat More of What You Love' Author Gives Her Tips For Satisfying Snack Options
Recipe of the day
You may not believe that your Super Bowl party can be healthy and delicious, but if anyone can pull it off it’s Marlene Koch. Her legions of followers would agree — Koch’s most recent book, Eat More of What You Love, was the country’s fourth most popular cookbook this year.
Koch believes that bettering your Super Bowl menu is a necessity. As she pointed out, "The Super Bowl is the second-highest caloric day for people, after Thanksgiving." But it’s not a matter of just putting out boring veggie plates with low-fat dip. Koch recommends cheesy nachos, but she adds beans for bulk, uses a leaner beef and a reduced-fat chip and mixes chicken stock into the cheese. Her recipe takes a 680-calorie dip and turns it into only 160 calories. "It’s the kind of eating big you can do and still stay small," she says. She also suggests a caramelized onion dip with light cream cheese and light mayonnaise.
