What’s Happening Sunday? It is BIG BOWL GAME DAY!

Sunday, February 4, 2018 is a big day for thousands of football fans across the country. It is the second-largest day for U.S. food consumption, after Thanksgiving Day, according to Wikipedia.

Develop a winning Big Bowl “food game plan” by thinking like a football player on the playing field. Only, instead of the opposing team, your field is filled with food and refreshments. Alice Henneman, MS, RDN, Extension Educator, put together eight winning strategies to help you win the game from getting in condition, sizing up the opponent, advancing to the goal line and finally, to making a TOUCHDOWN! You’ll also find delicious recipes for Pinto Bean Salsa Dip and Tuna Veggie Dip.

Extension Educator Alice Henneman shares some tips for making your own trail mix in this issue:

• Limit the serving size to about 1/4 cup to keep calories at a reasonable amount.
• Use unsalted versions of nuts.
• Choose cereals and crackers that are whole grain, and lower in sugar and salt.
• Limit the amount of added candy. Consider using “mini” versions of candy, such as mini chocolate
chips, to distribute a smaller amount of candy throughout the mix.
Check out the trail mix recipe on page 2 of the NEBLINE to get you started!
