Altering Your Diet

So this past weekend the steelers and packers beat out the bears and the jets to win berths in the superbowl. Being from Pittsburgh I am a Steelers fan. So I was very excited about the prospect of relaxing in front of the television this weekend with some traditional football food. But, I wanted to make it a little healthier if I could than what I would have gotten at the local pizzeria.The menu consisted of nachos, chicken wings, and pizza. For the nachos we baked nacho chips with salsa and cheese on top. Overall not too bad. The cheese was the worst thing on the nachos, accounting for extra calories. Next I baked the chicken wings at 400 degrees for 50 minutes. After thirty minutes i flipped over the wings and basted them in the wing sauce. They turned out really good. They were juicy and flavorful. And they weren’t as bad for you as restaurant bought chicken wings because they weren’t fried.Then we cooked some pizza. One we did for the kids that was plain, sauce, cheese, and that’s it. The other one i sauteed some onions, garlic and mushrooms in olive oil and put that on a pizza shell and added sliced tomatoes and some cheese.There was a lot less sodium in my food then in bought food. There was a lot less preservatives and therefore free-radicals in my food.So overall my football feast wasn’t the healthiest meal I ever prepared. But it was a lot healthier then what we would have gotten if we had ordered it from a restaurant. Not to mention that it was a lot less expensive than if we had bought it from a restaurant.
