Roasted Baby Carrots

This is the first year that my 49ers have made it to the big show in about a decade, so I am a smidgen excited. I was raised in a Giants/49ers household and I'm pulling hard to bring home the World Series and the Superbowl title home the same year.

Superbowl Sunday, in my family, is a yearly holiday in which we congregate around the tv and pig out for a few hours. This year will be no exception, but I'll be adding a fitness component to our tradition this year. I present to you, the "Superbowl Workout"!

For every touchdown: 6 jump squats
For an extra point: 1 more jump squat
For every interception: 10 high knees
For every flag: 5 pushups
For every coach's flag or challenge: 5 burpees
For every false start/offsides: 10 mountain climbers
For every foul: 30 second plank

Quick note, if you are a Ravens fan, you'll need to double all those numbers.

We will be having the usual football snacks, but you can bet I'll also have some healthy options!

I'll be bringing my oven roasted baby carrots to dip in hummus (my favorite snack of late), a giant bag of clementines, apple slices, and a super rich Cake Batter protein shake to have on hand if I start craving something sweet.

Roasted Baby Carrots, 6 servings

2 lb bag of washed baby carrots
2 T honey
2 T balsamic vinegar
1 T ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 400°F
Dump the baby carrots into a 9x13in baking dish
Drizzle with EVOO, honey, and balsamic vinegar
Sprinkle with ground cinnamon
Mix well with hands or a spoon (I like to lick my fingers afterwards)
Bake for 25 min

Let them cool before enjoying! I've been dipping mine in Trader Joe's white bean hummus or just snacking on them by themselves.

My snack from earlier this week at work... after I ate half the carrots. :) Too tasty to wait!
With just a peek at my ridiculous new favorite pants.

I love love love polka dots, so I just had to snap up these jeans. Check out those pattern matching skills!
