4. Daphne’s Herbed Popcorn: Toss the microwavable bag to the sidelines, and grab a handful (or two) of this light pick, which eliminates the unhealthy additives in the old-school bagged delight. Bonus: coated in dried herbs like thyme and oregano, this homemade version lets you control the amount of salt and oil.

5. Guacamole: As the primary ingredient in guacamole, avocados are chock-full of good fats that may help lower cholesterol. Serve this winning spread with crudités or your favorite low-calorie crisps.

6. Fajita Chicken Pizza: Forget fantasy football -- this is the king of all games; kickoff your Super Bowl© soiree with this over-the-top flatbread. First, tackle the crust by purchasing pizza dough from your supermarket or local pizzeria, and then, top with grilled chicken, goat cheese, and bell peppers. Cut in small squares, and defend your pieces before they’re just a fantasy.
