Let the Unhealthy Eating Begin

 Super Bowl Sunday may be all about football, but it is just as much about the food. The sheer volume of incredibly unhealthy dishes concocted solely for Super Bowl dining.

Carts at the grocery store yesterday were loaded with bags of chips, buffalo chicken wings, heart-unhealthy dip ingredients, plenty of Coke products, and, always popular, beer. The food stand ladies were hawking cocktail weenies, gooey meatballs, and all sort of cheesy dips with crackers. Shoppers were jovial as they stacked all sorts of goodies into their carts. No one was even talking about the game. Conversation revolved around food with a smattering of chatter about the Kitty Halftime show and the Puppy Bowl tossed in.

If I was watching the Super Bowl for the sake of enjoying football, I guess I'd have to cheer for the Seahawks. But I'll actually be watching mainly for those million dollar commercials and the halftime show, featuring the odd musical pairing of Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I'm curious to see how that plays out, but it probably won't be quite as entertaining as the infamous Justin Timberlake/Janet Jackson, live feed, wardrobe malfunction.

Enjoy the Super Bowl, the spread of food, and remember to hit the gym tomorrow!
