Super Bowl Sunday is one of the most popular junk food days of the year! We all know that the Super Bowl is known for potato chips, sliders, chicken wings, pizza, pigs in a blanket and so much more. Of course those are all delicious but there are ways to make your Super Bowl Sunday less greasy and add some nutrients to the menu! It wouldn’t be the same without some junk food and yummy finger foods but that doesn't mean you can’t have some healthy options as well.
Everyone loves chips and dip but instead of classic salsa, make a bowl of guacamole using fresh avocados or a healthy spinach and artichoke dip to pick on. Instead of just getting chicken wings and french fries for your guests you can put a healthy twist on it by making fried cauliflower bites or baked zucchini fries with Tzatziki sauce. A batch of coleslaw is great for cleansing the palette in between all the hefty bites. And for those who don’t like mayo, the vinegar version is a winner.
Still order your large pepperoni pizza but if you want to try something new, make a pizza with cauliflower pizza crust! It is a delicious gluten-free, low-carb and keto pizza recipe. It’s a simple blend of cauliflower, eggs, cheese, and a few spices that’s flattened and baked into a golden crust. Making the Super Bowl a healthy experience can change the way it is celebrated with keeping the original foods but putting a twist on them! It is always fun to try new foods that are also good for you. And you never know what your next Super Bowl favorite will be!
