Going to a Super Bowl party? These foods will score you some points

If you’re trying to keep a “healthy eating” new year’s resolution alive, check out these unique options before heading to a Super Bowl party.

We're suiting up, hitting the field and putting healthy versus indulgent foods to the test for your Super Bowl party.

Now, when it comes to keeping a healthy new year resolution alive, it's pretty difficult when you're surrounded by the greasiest, tastiest foods in existence.

I mean, come on. Who's going to say "no" to hot wings and melted queso on top of sea salt tortilla chips?!

So, we got to thinking. How can we bring a similar food that tastes just as good, if not better, with half the calories?

Despite popular belief that high-market newsrooms have makeup artists, hairstylists and nutritionists on-site, that is absolutely wrong (sadly).

So, we did a ton of research and scouted the city for a company that could provide us healthy foods to share on camera. The Good Kind accepted the challenge.

Time the Girl from The Good Kind Southtown made each healthy dish you see below. The wings and nachos are available daily.
