The Big Game is Sunday, and we generally eat a ton of pizza and cheese dip and maybe have an adult beverage or two. And it's great...until Monday morning when we feel like hammered cheese dip.

We visited with Brenda Duby with United Supermarkets about how to eat healthier for the Big Game and still have fun and not feel horrible the morning after.

She suggested grabbing some cherry tomatoes, olives, mozzarella and marinated mushrooms and making Caprese skewers with a balsamic vinegar glaze.

She also suggested that instead of Rotel dip, which is mighty delicious, go instead for guacamole dip and opt for a bean or bean and rice combo chip instead of corn tortilla chips.

And saving time is also a factor. Check out the deli and have them slice up your favorite meats like turkey and ham and your favorite cheeses to make a deli platter. Grab some Good N Grainy bread from the store's bakery, which they will also be happy to slice for you, pair it with different mustards and voila -- a party tray to please everyone.

These are definitely ways to enjoy the festivities without making your body pay for it.
