The average American Consumes 1,200 calories during the superbowl. Between the intense plays, blocked field goals, and hail mary touchdowns, let’s call a time out on consuming so many calories on this glorious Sunday.

This week we will look at lightened up superbowl food that is light on the calories, not on the flavor.
