Make watching the Super Bowl (and other big games) an active event!

We’ve decided big football games like the Super Bowl shouldn’t be events solely dedicated to sitting on a couch stuffing our faces.

Yes, there is a time and place for that (stuffing your face with healthy snacks, of course). But big games are active, high-intensity events. They beg for action.

Football is fun to watch. But we’ve got an idea that will make it even more fun: the Healthy Driven Big Game Exercise Challenge!

Channel your big game excitement into these moves and get a workout while you watch the game. Going to a party? Even better! Get the whole group involved.

We’ve got a lineup of exercises tied to events in the game.  Did the coin flip come up heads? Knock out 10 sit-ups. A challenge flag is thrown? Do a 30-second wall sit. Our list will keep you active throughout the evening.

You could even start your own little competition amongst friends. Who can finish those 10 sit-ups the fastest?

Fuel up with healthy snacks

Let’s go back to the snacking for a moment. We have some ideas for that, too. Whip up a batch of this Mediterranean Cheese Spread to serve with veggies or pita chips. While you’re at it, make a bowl of this Fresh Salsa, too.

Another party-ready appetizer that’s super-easy to put together: Mozzarella Tomato Basil Skewers.

Your crowd will be well-fed and having fun with the Healthy Driven Big Game Challenge.

Take the challenge – and share it!
