Hey Whole 30’ers! You’re about to enter your 4th week of eating clean, nutritious food. How are you feeling??? Energy levels picking up? Clothes maybe fitting better? Have you got the planning, shopping, cooking, and packing down to a tee now? Well, with Superbowl Weekend upon us, for some of you, this might just be a wicked curve ball. But there’s no need to fret. You can still survive the Superbowl parties with, you’ve guessed it, pre party planning.
If you’re the host:
CAKE! No, not for eating, but as in, this will be cake. If you’re planning the menu, you have no excuses. You can grill meats, have plenty of Whole 30 compliant appetizers from pulled pork sliders (on cucumbers), deviled eggs, carnitas lettuce wraps, Nick’s Bacon Sammies, chorizo meatballs (recipe can be found in the Practical Paleo book in the office), veggie crudite, fruit plates, seltzer, and bottled waters. If your guests are so inclined, tell them they’ll be responsible for bringing their own alcohol.
If you’re the guest:
Bring dishes that are Whole 30 compliant (Buffalo style chicken wings, grilled DIY sausages, kalua pork) so that you will be certain there are foods you can eat. You’ll also look like a rockstar for helping contribute to the spread. You can also bring a couple cases of La Croix soda water (which btw are on sale at Sprouts this week, 2 packs of 8 for $6).
But what about the beer, you say? How do you avoid the alcohol? Say it with me kids, JUST SAY NO! Kinda takes you back to grade school with the whole peer pressure issue doesn’t it? But hey, wait, you’re all adults now and you don’t cave to peer pressure anymore, remember? In all seriousness, you’ve worked hard to get where you are. The hard part is already behind you so don’t give in now. It will not be worth it.
