Sustainable Super Bowl Sunday

football-60247_640The Super Bowl… a day for football or a day for friends, family, commercials, halftime shows, puppies and snacks (depending on your interests, not necessarily in that order)! If your focus is food (and whose isn’t?), why not upgrade your spread with some locally-grown, sustainably produced fare this year? Blindside your guests with tasty and healthy snacks! Clothesline anyone who tries to bring in fast food! Make sure no off-season veggies show up to play!

OK, OK… that was a lame attempt to use some football terms that I don’t understand, but I do understand the importance of making healthy food delicious so that everyone enjoys it and comes back for more. Super Bowl, health and sustainability aren’t usually used in the same sentence, but it can be done. There are many ways to upgrade your party food and here is a roundup of some doable ideas:
