Where to Find Healthy and Tasty Super Bowl Party Eats and Treats

Super Bowl parties have become as much about food and drinks as the game itself. During a three-hour football game and endless commercials, Americans consume insane amounts of the least healthy food on the planet, washed down by mass quantities of beer and soda. Ironic that a celebration that revolves around an athletic event has become a display of gluttony on greasy, cheesy foods.

Go out to a restaurant or bar that offers less traditional yet more nutritional dishes, or enjoy the big game on-site in your room or cottage at North Beach Plantation. You don't have to serve pizza, hot dogs and chicken wings to throw a proper Super Bowl party. Check out these restaurants and stores for a healthy and tasty Super Bowl feast:
