The Great American Sports Celebration

Today is Super Bowl Sunday. The best of the best athletes converge on the field of battle, after years of working out, drills, practice, games and of course eating right. How do we celebrate such an achievement? By sitting in front of a television eating thousands of calories in fried and cheese covered snacks.

I know, its the American way, celebrating a holiday by over-eating unhealthy foods in front of the television. Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving... and those are just the non-religious ones! We eat chocolate on Valentines Day, we eat more candy on Halloween. Its a culture of over-indulgence.

I have no intention of telling you that you shouldn't eat those foods on those days. I love to indulge in that stuff too. All this would be fine if we weren't so lazy the rest of the year! So this is what I am proposing this Super Bowl Sunday; spend the day throwing around a football or some other fun game. Make those unhealthy snacks "special"; only eat them on holidays. Lets keep our traditions and make the rest of the year great.
