Super Bowl is next weekend and the x and the x are facing off. While I am disappointed that my Broncos will not be in the game, I am excited for some solid football and hilarious commercials. Super Bowl food is always one of my favorite parts of the game, but can be a day where calories add up really quickly. Finger foods, drinks, and desserts are a plenty and often difficult to resist. The best way to help with this is to be the person who shows up to the party with a healthy, but delicious treat.

One of my favorite football game treats is wings. However, they are often fried and doused in ranch dressing. A healthy, delicious way to cook wings is to bake them with lemon.
