Watch it for the commercials…and the strawberries
Certain foods have been enjoying the status of Big-Game-Party royalty pretty much since there was a Big Game to celebrate. There’s King Chip, Queen Dip, the Duke and Duchess of Guacamole. And what do a lot of these hallowed snacks have in common? They’re hmmm-mmm-mmm savory. Sweets have their place, but save the odd cupcake festooned with astroturf-hued frosting, they don’t seem to play a major role in cheering on your favorite team (or your second favorite…or third…sigh—Russy, why’d you have to go and break that finger?).
The other thing you don’t see much of? You know what’s coming…nutrition. Of, like, any kind. Okay, maybe there’s some protein in there, what with the cocktail weenies wrapped in whatever one wraps cocktail weenies in; and guacamole could be argued as a healthy option (good fats, etc.). However, what are you dipping in that guacamole, carrot sticks? I thought not. If you’re willing to expand your snacktastic horizons and consider both sweet and nutritious, you might be surprised how well strawberries and raspberries fit the bill (Well•Pict Berries strawberries and raspberries, of course). And if you think we’re only talking desserts here, think again. Sure, we have plenty of sweet, healthy fare to brighten up your football-prom night like…
