It may not be your typical Super Bowl Sunday this year, but there’s no need for your socially-distanced watch-party to fumble. If you still want to get festive at home with your family, these healthy game day recipes will score you major points.
Healthy Super Bowl Snacks: Small Bites
Bell pepper poppers
These bell pepper poppers are packed with protein and Vitamin C, and a lot lower in fat and calories than traditional pepper poppers. But don’t worry these poppers pack in so much flavor that you and your family wouldn’t even know these are healthy. I’d call that a win-win!
Baked Buffalo Cauliflower Bites
The Buffalo Bills might not be playing in the Super Bowl this year, but buffalo is still in play in our game! These battered and baked Buffalo Cauliflower Bites are a fan-favorite game day snack that you can feel good about eating.
Bench the potato chips and pass the bbq popcorn. Popcorn is naturally higher in fiber and lower in calories, but still provides that crunch when you want something savory to snack on. The bbq seasoning on these make for an addictive, yet healthy snack.
Sweet Potato Nachos
Nachos can be healthy? You betcha! Coach Sara A’s Sweet Potato Nachos recipe is full of fiber and antioxidants like beta carotene and Vitamin A. While this recipe is vegetarian, feel free to add in your favorite protein such as shredded chicken or pork.
Five Spice Kale Chips
Kick things up a notch with these Chinese Five Spice Kale Chips. This is another great potato chip alternative, but with a unique and tasty Asian flair.
Healthy Super Bowl Snacks: Dips
Healthy Taco Dip
While traditional healthy taco dip uses sour cream or cream cheese, this taco dip recipe uses natural healthy fats from avocado and reduced fat cheese. Pair with chopped veggies like carrot “chips” or endives, or homemade baked sweet potato chips.
Spinach Artichoke Dip
Sneak in a full serving of high-fiber veggies like spinach, artichokes, roasted peppers, and green onions in this much healthier version of spinach artichoke dip. Pair with crudites or whole wheat pitas.
Healthy Superbowl Snacks: Proteins
Low Sugar Cocktail Shrimp
Traditional cocktail sauce contains 6 grams of added sugar per tablespoon. This low sugar shrimp cocktail still gives you the same nostalgic flavor, without spiking your blood sugar and saving you some calories.
Hummus Deviled Eggs
These hummus deviled eggs are a healthier twist on the classic sans cholesterol and high fat content. Replace the yolk and mayo with low fat and high fiber hummus filling, but still get the same satisfying bite.
These chicken satay skewers make for a fun alternative to your average chicken wings. These skewers also use a leaner protein, but packed with flavor from the Thai seasonings. These are sure to be a watch party fave!
