Low Sodium, Low Carb Recipes for The Big Game

Originally posted on Massapequa Dad

If you follow my wife’s blog “Massapequa Family”, you can see that we are working on a low sodium and low carb lifestyle.  We’ve been taking every day recipes and making them more conducive to my dietary needs.  So far it is working.  But what about on special occasions such as one of the most anticipated nights in America?  For those of us trying to eat healthy, what can we have while watching The Super Bowl?

Our friends over at Stop & Shop have some nice recipes you might want to try for your Big Game Party!  I thought I’d share some, and hoping my wife will make some of these for watching the game!
