• Super Bowl This Sunday at 6:30; Philadelphia Eagles v. Kansas City Chiefs Ways to Save Calories While Enjoying Eats on Super Bowl Sunday Breast Augmentation Special with Free Juvederm filler or Botox! Recipes for Appetizers and a Dip

    Mused after having dinner at Losanti steak and pasta restaurant and listening to music at Ghost Baby. Mostly a jazz bar, we heard everything from Johnny Cash to The Clash. Most interesting thing is that it is in old liquor cellar that stored alcohol during Prohibition and it’s 5 stories below ground. Hard to get reservations but walk-ins are welcome.


    With parties and pregame activities, it’s easy to spend the day eating (and drinking) thousands of calories. Here are some tips to limit the damage.

    Instead of making beef chili try white chicken chili or vegetarian chili. Limit the sour cream.

    Instead of buying those delicious chicken wings from Kroger or restaurants, bake or air fry the wings. There are some great sauce recipes or purchase premade and dip them once cooked.

    Instead of burgers, try sliders for portion control. Or better yet, instead of ground beef use portobellos, ground buffalo or game (most has less fat), turkey or again, a vegetarian substitute.

    (Did You Know? The foodnetwork.com has recipes for traditional food such as hot wings, chili, and potato skins. Epicurious.com focuses on dips and salsas, sandwiches, chili, and desserts. Cookinglight.com does makeovers to lighten the caloric load in food from chili to brownie.)

    Instead of chips (tortilla or potato) use baked tortillas chips for dipping. There are many “salsas” that can be made or bought beside traditional. Verde, pineapple, aguacate (salsa with avocado, my fav), criolla and taquera are all varieties.

    Of course, there are other healthy appetizers such as spinach-artichoke dip, deviled eggs, shrimp cocktail, nuts, vegetable tray and many others.

    Below are recipes for nachos, bacon lettuce cups, and a dip for veggies.

    Dessert: How could any event occur without dessert? With everything else so heavy a light dessert is favorable such as lemon bars, brownies, or even a fruit tray.

    Enjoy the game, the pregame festivities and don’t drink and drive.

    All the nurses, Ashley & Diane et. al., were wonderful. Very caring and soothing. The NA, Erica, was also very calming and explained everything. Dr. McK was a perfect captain to the ship. Everything ran so smoothly from my perspective. All in all a great experience even if it was a major surgery. Thanks to all. -N.H.


    Put a layer of baked tortilla chips on a cookie sheet. Cover with black beans, red onion, jalapenos, tomatoes and low-fat cheese. Cover this with chicken that has already been roasted and more cheese. Bake at 500 degrees for 6-8 minutes.

    Bacon lettuce cups:
    Cook half a pound of bacon, chop into bite size pieces and mix with buffalo wing sauce. Place this, halved grape tomatoes, with crumbled blue cheese, feta or similar on lettuce leaves.

    Veggie Dip:
    Mix ¼ cup mascarpone cheese, ¼ cup low-fat sour cream, zest and juice from one lemon, 4 tsp. chopped dill and ½ tsp. salt.
