Super Bowl 53 is just around the corner and for some that may mean get togethers with friends and family.
Those get togethers can involve food that isn’t as healthy as it could be.
Growing up, Macy Pirlet says eating out was a regular occurrence making eating healthy tough.
“I come from a family that we don’t cook very often, we like to go out to eat and when we do cook it’s something quick, something easy and typically quick and easy isn’t the healthiest,” Pirlet siad.
Last July Pirlet decided she was ready for a change. She joined Profile by Sanford, and says her new healthy diet plus meal planning has made a difference.
“I was at my heaviest weight I’ve ever been at and I just felt unhealthy and blah and… I’ve lost about, almost 40 pounds,” Pirlet said.
Pirlet says it’s not just meal planning at home that’s helped, but also planning ahead of outings.
One of those outings is an upcoming Super Bowl party with friends.
“There will also be obviously those temptations but hopefully the eating before I go I won’t be as hungry,” Pirlet said.
“If you’re going to a party, try to find some healthy options to bring and share with other people. We have a bunch of great recipes,” Profile manager Jill Biltoft said.
Biltoft says many of the items Profile has to offer can also be turned into fun party recipes.
“We made a buffalo hummus, so just using a regular hummus, added that buffalo sauce, getting that great flavor but not having to worry about those extra calories,” Biltoft said.
And if you just can’t say no to the pizza at the party, Biltoft says there’s even a healthy option for that.
“We have a new pizza crust that we launched and they’re high protein, low carb, so it fits really well into a low carb diet,” Biltoft said.
“When I tried it, it was probably the most flavorable thing that I’ve had since being on this diet in July,” Pirlet said.
A plan to keep you on track, without saying goodbye to pizza or buffalo dip.
