We know you’re throwing a #superbowlparty.  The Box may pop up at your house on Sunday to kick it wit cha.

What’s on your SBP menu, though?  Well here are 5 healthier alternatives for you at your party, per FOX News,

Baked Boneless Wings

Typical Buffalo wings are double trouble because they are fried with the chicken skin on. One serving can easily pack 1700 calories and 50 grams of fat –and that’s before you dip them in blue cheese dressing! Lighten up without giving up great taste by baking boneless chicken breast strips in a delicious sauce made by whisking together hot pepper sauce, corn starch, white vinegar, and cayenne pepper. Opt for low-fat ranch dressing for dipping and your serving of wings has less than 300 calories and 10 grams of fat.

Greek Yogurt in Dips

Everyone loves a good dip, but make it with mayonnaise and you could be looking at over 900 calories and 78 grams of fat per cup. Make your dip with 0 percent fat-free plain Greek yogurt and you’ll cut about 800 calories and 78 grams of fat! Greek yogurt not only makes for a creamier texture, you also get a big boost of healthy, belly-filling protein, calcium, and vitamins A and D.

Lean Turkey Meatballs

Ouch! A six-inch meatball marinara sub has upwards of 750 calories and 11 grams of saturated fat. Avoid that by making your own meatballs with 99 percent lean ground white turkey topped with Rao’s tomato sauce. Using lean turkey saves about 150 calories and 14 grams of fat per serving, and it helps that Rao’s tomato sauce is super-low in carbohydrates. Go even lighter by skipping the bread and serve your meatballs on skewers.
