TIP OF THE DAY: Better Super Bowl Food

Turkey chili saves calories and fat.
Get the recipe from McCormick.

As you’re watching the Steelers face the Packers on Super Bowl Sunday, will you be feasting on the “standard” artery-clogging, fat-building, colon-wrenching fare?

The choice is yours, but you can feast just as well on better-for-you food with the same amount of prep time. And no one will notice the difference.

We have suggestions from Carl Germano, RD, CDN, a Board-certified clinical nutritionist and the Chief Science Officer of Inergetics, makers of SURGEX, a muscle- and power-generating shake. As someone who spends his days focusing on nutrition, Germano recommends these switches.
