Super Bowl (XLVIII) is now only days away, so like most of us you might be preparing yourself for a little overindulgence.
As with other holidays and gatherings, you don’t have to go overboard with your snacking on Super Bowl Sunday!
These slow cooker Super Bowl recipes will free you up to have fun and enjoy the food with less guilt.
There are so many delicious, lighter, healthier slow cooker super bowl recipes around, the biggest dilemma can be what to choose.
So, to get a fresh perspective, I asked my brother, Peter, if he would assemble a list of Weight Watchers Friendly Slow Cooker Super Bowl Recipes that sounded appealing to him…
Hi everyone, Peter here.
This year’s game is going to be played outside in New Jersey at MetLife Stadium – the first time I can remember that the Super Bowl will be played outdoors in cold weather climate. Fortunately both teams, the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks are used to playing in messy weather, so it should be a good game.
And of course, don’t forget all the wonderful commercials and halftime performance by Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
After sifting through some of Martha’s favorite web sites, I came up with this list of 33 slow cooker super bowl recipes that would be perfect for sharing this Sunday or any other time you’re in need of a delicious Weight Watchers friendly game day snack. So, without further ado…
