Super Bowl is the second largest food consumption day in America, behind Thanksgiving. Most people look forward to the food more than the game. Here, we feature some healthy recipes to keep you on track during the big game day.

According to Blimpie, over Super Bowl weekend, approximately 100 pounds of guacamole will be eaten. It takes more than 220,000 football fields worth of farmland to grow all these avocados.
