How I’m Winning During the Super Bowl

Did you catch my post yesterday? It was random, but worth checking out!

I'm getting out of this funk & on to bigger & better watching the Super Bowl! ;)

I watch football because my husband LOVES it! I've actually gotten into it a little more each year and follow his favorite teams as well. This year I'm not too into either team that's playing in the Super Bowl, but I’m watching the game and the commercials, of course! (in between taking care of a certain cute, little baby!)

But what I love about Super Bowl Sunday is the FOOD! As a part of getting out of the funk I was determined to make some yummy, but smart options! Check out what I made!

Layered Taco Dip

(adapted from Eat Better America)IMG_1056

  • 1/2 lb ground turkey
  • 1/2 envelope lower sodium taco seasoning
  • 4 oz fat free cream cheese
  • 10 oz fat free refried beans
  • 1/4 c fat free sour cream
  • 1/4 c fat free mayonnaise
  • 4 oz reduced fat shredded cheddar

Preheat oven to 325. Cook ground turkey with 1/4 of the taco seasoning envelope. Set aside. Spread cream cheese in the bottom of an 8X8 baking dish, spread refried beans for the next layer. In a small bowl, mix sour cream mayonnaise, and remaining taco seasoning. Spread sour cream mixture on top of bean layer. Top with turkey and shredded cheddar. Bake 25 minute. Serve with vegetables or tortilla chips.

Makes 8 servings. 3 points+/serving.

I paired my taco dip with 1 serving of tortilla chips for a total of 7 points. Delish super bowl appetizer!IMG_1058

The hubs was excited to order pizza for the game. I said no to the pizza, it was 9 points+/slice! Yikes!!! I decided to make sweet potato fries. I had about 1/4 of the potato for only 2 points+!IMG_1060

I rounded out my super bowl treats with a sweet, oversized orange! I need the extra vitamin C.

I’m off to cuddle up on the couch and watch the rest of the game. I feel a cold coming on and I’m really not too excited about it. Sad smile

What’s your favorite part of the Super Bowl?
