Super Bowl Showdown: Buffalo-Style Cauliflower versus Chicken
Gearing up for the big game this Sunday? The Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots might be battling for the win in Super Bowl XLIX, but we can all win this year by planning a healthful and delicious menu.
Super Bowl Sunday is the country’s second biggest food consumption day behind only Thanksgiving. In the week leading up to the game, Americans purchase far more calories than any other week all year. According to the National Chicken Council, Americans are expected to consume more than 1 billion chicken wings this weekend. Chicken wings are filled with fat and cholesterol, and our 2012 report even found that half of the chicken in grocery stores is contaminated with feces!
Fortunately, new research shows that the most popular Super Bowl snack isn’t pizza or wings, but veggies! If we sack the chicken wings and pack our plates with antioxidant-rich Buffalo-style cauliflower, we’ll all have something to cheer about!
