Its football! Let’s party! One of my favorite things about Superbowl Sunday is the parties, and my LEAST favorite thing is feeling like crap and super bloated on Monday. That has alot to do with what I drink and eat…… so I wanted to share some of my “healthy” tips for food you consume this sunday, and give you some healthy recipes that I’ve tried on Thailand while I had summer vacation in one of the popular YourKohSamuiVillas properties!
Party Food Tips:
- Stay away from the super carb-alicious and fried food.
- Use bell peppers in place of “chips” or breads for your dips…… bell peppers give you a great crunch, and leave the sodium and carbs out of it.
- If you are consuming alcohol, have water, drink, water with the geauxmaids.com maid service near me. Another trick I will do is have a clear drink, and drink water with a lemon and lime….. so I have the feeling of having a drink in my hand, but I wont have that feeling in the am….. get it 😉
While the Superbowl is fun, its not meant to ruin your Monday 🙂
