7 Healthy Super Bowl Snacks
Who said buffalo wings can’t be (at least somewhat) healthy?! Make them into healthy super bowl snacks by baking them instead of frying them – not only will they be lower in fat, they will be way less greasy (and way less likely to give you a bellyache later)! Check out this easy to make recipe from Popsugar.com for healthier baked wings that don’t sacrifice flavor.
Move over, fattening ranch dip! This avocado-yogurt dip is a hit on our list of healthy super bowl snacks because it is low on fat, by using low-fat plain yogurt as the base. Be sure to serve it with fresh baby carrots, celery sticks and red bell peppers instead of pita chips!
Mini Turkey Burgers
These healthy super bowl snacks are a fun twist on the classic beef sliders that everyone loves. The size of the burgers is great for helping you keep your portion control in check. We love this recipe for Mini Turkey Burgers with gorgonzola from Cooking Light!
Football Trail Mix
Substitute ho-hum Chex Mix with healthy super bowl snacks that you can whip up on the spot, like our Football Trail Mix. We like to mix different varieties of nuts (such as walnuts and almonds) with some seeds and Crispy Fruit, of course! We like to use Crispy Mangoes for an unexpected twist, but you can certainly use whichever is your favorite.
Have your fries, and eat them too with these delicious healthy super bowl snacks! They are baked instead of fried, and zucchinis themselves are a great source of vitamin A, potassium, and folate. Check out this recipe for Zucchini Fries from DamnDelicious.com, containing step-by-step instructions.
Game Day Chili
If you’re looking for healthy super bowl snacks that will feed a hungry crowd, chili is just the ticket! Be sure to use turkey meat instead of beef, which will help cut down on the fat substantially (without sacrificing delicious flavor)! View this Springfield Chili recipe here from myrecipes.com.
