Healthy Super Bowl

 

We will be attending a Super Bowl party on Sunday, and while it is not typically a day when most people worry about healthy eating, I think it is a good idea to have some healthier options. My search on Pinterest gave me a few ideas, but there were unfortunately, not a lot to choose from. Still, I was able to come up with a few recipes that looked delicious, yet at least made an attempt, to cut the fat and calories.

This Skinny Buffalo Chicken Dip, served with celery sticks is a great idea. I love spicy flavors and the crunch of the celery will replace the craving for chips.

Quesadillas can be a great, low fat choice, and this recipe, filled with corn and black beans are a delicious and filling, meatless option.

Baked Buffolo Chicken Strips, served with non fat blue cheese dressing, are a good alternative to the fried version.

These bright and colorful Antipasto Skewers look really pretty and are made with lots of healthy veggies.

Pickle Chips, that are baked, instead of fried, would be a fun and unexpected snack. A perfect alternative to potato chips and dip.

All of these are yummy choices, that will make Super Bowl snacking, guilt free.

Have a great weekend and enjoy your Super Bowl parties :-)
