Superbowl Party Pepperoni Dip

pepperoni_dip_mfbWe’re not really big football watchers in my house.  My husband will watch the occasional game if there’s nothing else on TV, but we’re more hockey people.  Football has lots of starts and stops, lots of standing up and bending over (my favorite part!), and lots of hugging huddling. Hockey is a little bit faster and more engaging.  However, we do watch the Grey Cup and Superbowl.

I’ve been to a couple of professional football games in my life.  I can’t say that I didn’t enjoy them, I just enjoy the energy in the stadium more.  Whether your game is hockey, football, tennis, or golf, there is a certain energy in the stadium, arena, living room, or general area around sports.

Endorphins are a natural hormone in your body that combat stress and give you an overall feeling of well-being.  There are many ways to release these endorphins – exercise,  smiling, eating chocolate, eating spicy food, laughing, and socializing are just some of the ways to release endorphins.  Cheering for your favorite team or player with your family and friends will release your endorphins and make you feel great!  The experts said so!
