Are you excited for the Superbowl this Sunday?
Honestly, I’m not a big football fan, but I am always excited for some fun with friends and family and good food! If you’re having your own party, bringing a dish to someone else’s party, or simply want to make a few tasty treats for yourself-check out these healthy treats.
The average Superbowl fan-fare contains hundreds of calories from fatty wings, cheesy dips, and empty calories from chips and sweets. These recipes are easy-to-make and calorie-dense to keep you satisfied so that you don’t overindulge.
Roasted nuts full of flavor without lots of oil and sugar. Nuts are rich in fiber, minerals, phytonutrients, and antioxidants. They are also high in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats which can help lower cholesterol.
Every Superbowl party needs some buffalo ranch flavor. Instead of traditional wings, get all the flavor in stove-top popcorn. Lots of fiber without the excess trans fat oils.
Anyone else love artichokes as much as I do? When I learned they could be roasted and dipped into a creamy horseradish sauce, I was hooked!
I’m a sucker for shrimp cocktail. Did you know the cocktail sauce you love to submerge your shrimp in is loaded with added sugar and high fructose corn syrup? Make your own! It’s easy and you can’t feel guilty double dipping.
That’s right-dairy-free nachos. These nachos are made with raw nuts and spices, but I promised they still taste great! Top with everything your heart desires: ground beef, beans, salsa, guacamole, olives, jalapeños…
Maybe not your typical Superbowl food, but they’re fun because you can eat them with your hands. It’s like a handheld salad with a tasty peanut butter dipping sauce. If your friends are up to it, make a “Spring Roll Salad Bar” and have them make their own.
These are fun little bite-sized cookies filled with everything you need at a live football game: popcorn, peanuts, and chocolate. High in fiber and compounds to stabilize blood sugar.
I don’t know many people who don’t like the peanut butter and chocolate combo. No one will know these egg-free, flourless cookie dough bites are healthy.
If you want to make a fun non-alcoholic drink for yourself or the kids, this strawberry lemonade sparkler is tasty without the sugar-crash.
