4 Healthy Dishes To Serve At Your Super Bowl Party
It’s that time of year again, Superbowl Sunday!! I know I am really excited about the big game, are you? With the Super Bowl comes the Super Bowl party and, most likely, plenty of calorie dense food. While it’s inevitable that you’ll be seated and crowded around the TV for most of the day, you can at least be sure that you are not sitting and stuffing your face with all of the greasy food that oftentimes accompanies this game. This year, I have 4 healthy dishes that are sure to be a game changer at your Super Bowl party!
Greek Yogurt Veggie Dip
1 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
¼ cup shredded carrots
¼ cup shredded zucchini
1 TBSP garlic powder (or a clove of fresh minced garlic)
fresh ground pepper (to taste)
½ lemon juiced
All you have to do is mix all of the ingredients together, how easy is that? This dip is a much better substitute for other more common options that are normally really high in fat, calories and sodium. The Greek yogurt is packed with protein & your guests will love it. Serve this dip with some whole grain chips, whole grain bread and, of course, fresh veggies!
Thinly sliced apple wedges
Dark chocolate chips
Creamy peanut butter
Cut the apple in half and then slice into thin wedges and arrange them on a plate or tray. Melt peanut butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds and then drizzle over the apples. Top with dark chocolate chips, shaved coconut, raw walnuts and cinnamon. This delectable treat is the best way to curb your sweet craving and give your guests what they want– quick finger food to grub on in between plays.
Mini Berry Parfait
Homemade banana ice cream (bananas & coconut milk)
Fresh berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries)
Goji berries (optional)
Raw slivered almonds
Raw honey (optional)
Slice up bananas and put them into a plastic bag and freeze them for 3+ hours. To make the banana ice cream, put the frozen bananas in a blender and add splashes of coconut milk and blend. You don’t want to add too much coconut milk, so add it in a splash at a time in order to get an ice cream consistency. Use 1 frozen banana per parfait. Once the ice cream is finished, in a small cup, start layering: ice cream, oatmeal, almonds, berries, honey repeat! This dessert is full of protein, complex carbs, antioxidants, and only natural sugars. What is a party without dessert? You can pre-make these the night before and put them in your fridge, or let your guests make them themselves – during a commercial break of course.
This recipe is from a previous Super Bowl episode on the Runtastic Fitness Channel, but they were seriously so delicious I was absolutely compelled to share them in this posting as well.
I hope you have a great Super Bowl celebration and may the best team win!
