Whether you’re an Eagles fan, a Patriots fan, or none of the above, chances are you have plans to watch the Super Bowl this Sunday. Football games can unfortunately be a trap to overeat unhealthy foods, but it’s not impossible to stay on track with your health goals! Our dietitians have found healthy substitutes for classic dishes to help you avoid excess calories this weekend.

1. The Dish: Frank’s Buffalo Chicken Dip
The Substitute: Buffalo Chicken Boats

Buffalo chicken dip can be high in fat because most recipes include a high amount of cream cheese, cheddar cheese and ranch dressing. Instead, try our recipe to get all the taste of buffalo chicken, in one convenient bite!
