These days we will use any excuse to get together with friends and family, which usually revolves around the social aspect of eating and drinking. Under no circumstance am I perfect, and yes I allow myself to say "screw it" and enjoy some pizza and beer, but throughout the year those "screw its" can add up! Think about it, some of us have two to three large events each month including weddings, birthdays, engagement parties, bachelorette parties, graduations, football parties, or just getting together with friends, and we all know that alcohol triggers hunger, and it's usually not the healthiest of choices that sober you would normally make.
Have no fear, I have your solutions for this upcoming Superbowl Sunday, and I am giving you these tips so you can star planning and send out your group text ASAP that you're hosting this year! If you already have plans to go somewhere, no worries just make sure you offer to bring a few dishes for the group :)
Don't make Superbowl Sunday another excuse to eat whatever you want and "start Monday." Think about how many calories, unhealthy fats and processed foods we would avoid if we stopped using the excuse, "I'll start Monday," because thinking about it myself and how many times I have used that excuse in the past makes me cringe to think of much processed, chemical-induced substances and harmful toxins I've put into my body. Had I just eaten my normal routine and had just one or two treats at a festivity instead of indulging because I was going to "start Monday" is extremely eye opening.
Do you or have you ever used this excuse? If so, that's okay, we're all human, but you can turn those days around now by understanding that excuses never get us anywhere in life, to be strong and stay true to yourself, to not give into peer pressure and by trying these tips below for your upcoming festivities:
