Super Bowl: Round 2

It’s that time again – Super Bowl Sunday! A day for football, fun, and… unhealthy foods? Not necessarily. We got the chance to attend a special event earlier this week hosted by Dannon Oikos that featured classic Super Bowl recipes – with a healthy twist. Move over, greasy chicken wings with blue cheese dressing. Step aside, nachos with soggy cheese. What we’ve got is way better – and better for you.   Adding nonfat yogurt, such as Dannon Oikos Greek yogurt, to your dishes is a delicious way to increase the nutritional quality of a dish. Plain nonfat Greek yogurt is an excellent source of protein and contains no fat or added sugars. Instead of using ¼ cup of butter, substitute 1 cup of Greek yogurt; for 1 tablespoon of sour cream, try 1 tablespoon of yogurt instead. You won’t taste the difference but your body will feel the difference.
