super bowl food ridiculousness

It seems that this is the week of super bowl food. Forget the commercials, it’s all about the food. Is the game even worth a mention anymore? I’m not sure…

Pinterest is FULL of cheesy dips, party foods and sweet treats. Which is pretty standard, but I swear there are more than normal! (super bowl recipe pins)

There is a full-fledged shortage of chicken wings – buy them sooner than later and you will be paying a premium!

Every article and headline is either low-calorie recipes so you don’t gain weight, or the opposite – drool-worthy, cheesy, gooey recipes that are begging to make your super bowl party food list.

Commercials are getting us geared up to think that we absolutely couldn’t watch the game without: soda, beer and a pizza delivery.

And I’ve even joined a #superbowlplus hangout on google+.

It’s a bit ridiculous, right? But what are we to do? Go completely overboard and indulge in everything we’ve seen online or on tv? Or serve some boring grilled chicken breasts with veggies and a low-fat greek yogurt dip? Don’t even get me started on soup – so not super bowl food. Ugh.

I’ve never been one for making things too healthy, and I’ve never been one to have a snack spread lacking some sort of vegetable. And even though I think it is all a bit ridiculous, I’ll still have to partake in the super bowl food fest. :) My spread will look something like this:

A balance of healthy and indulgent, fun and veggies.

What is on your super bowl food menu this year?

oh, hi.

It’s me.

As you can see, I’ve taken another long break.

Truth be told, a few weeks ago, I was ready to give up on blogging, but after much back and forth, I don’t think I’m ready to quit quite yet.

I’ve put so much into this little website, spent so much money and taken pictures of dinners at 10am. Sometimes people give me free stuff and sometimes I get invited to cool events! I’ve met friends through blogging, and it has certainly helped with job opportunities. But honestly, those aren’t the things I miss when I take a break. I miss sharing healthy meal ideas, nutrition tips and pretty (hopefully) food pictures with you all. I guess I’m not ready to stop talking about food and nutrition just quite yet.

So you’re stuck with me, and I appreciate you sticking around. :)

See you soon with a real post!
