The Super Bowl is an American tradition. Everyone watches the Super Bowl - or at least goes to a party. So whether you're into the commercials, the game or both - everyone wants something good to eat. But with all the choices and all the extra calories consumed it is important that we make each dish health conscious so you don't have to deprive yourself of anyone of the many fabulous dips.
