Weight Watchers: Creamy Mexican Dip for Superbowl

Updated 2 years ago

The Super Bowl has evolved into a bigger eating event than Thanksgiving! And it packs a lot more challenges too! Thanksgiving meals revolve around turkey – a relatively low-fat cut of meat and the meal is served on a dinner plate. That helps you to keep your portions and your calories under control. The Super Bowl is all about savory, high-fat, high-calorie snacks. Worse, those snacks are set out everywhere in big bowls that invite you to help yourself without any thoughts whatsoever about how much you’re eating! And since your focus is on the game, not so much what you’re eating while you watch it, it’s easy to eat thousands of calories without the slightest awareness of what you’re doing! The team you’re rooting for might win but if you’re on “Team Weight Loss” you might be discouraged by “high score” when you step on the scale. Jackie Conn, from Weight Watchers, is here to share her Winning the Super Bowl Strategies.Plan 1* Psych yourself up to win by: (a) Think of the biggest accomplishment you have ever achieved (b) What inner resources did you call upon to make it happen (c) Put a “Super Bowl” ring on your finger as a reminder to use those same resources to win the Super BowlPlan 2* 2 drinks* 2 fistsCreamy Mexican DipWeight Watchers Recipe Prep time: 10 minCook time: 0 minServes: 8Perfect for a party.
