Super Bowl, Super Food: Heart Healthy Super Bowl Party Snacks


The Super Bowl is here! It’s time to watch two of the best teams in the country run, catch, dodge and tackle their way into the end zone for a win that could land them the biggest title in football history. But for some, the biggest award of them all is good health. Heart disease is the number one cause of death in America. February is American Heart Month, and it is important for Americans to learn about the impacts of heart disease and how they can take precautions through exercise and eat healthily.

No matter their age, football players on all teams, work hard to keep their heart in shape for the game, and so should you! It’s as easy as incorporating healthy foods into your diet like sorghum and exercising regularly. The American Heart Association indicates studies have shown that eating whole grains have lowered the risk of stroke, type two diabetes and heart disease. With its high potassium and low sodium, sorghum is perfect for promoting healthy blood pressure while you are celebrating your favorite team’s touchdown! Plus, it’s packed with plenty of protein, fiber and other healthy nutrients.

However, you plan on watching the Superbowl, score a heart-healthy touchdown with these sorghum recipes!
