Healthy Super Bowl Party Foods
By CocoAndTea on February 22, 2013
Regardless who wins the Super Bowl, the one thing we know for sure is: we are going to stuff ourselves! According to the Calorie Control Council, during the Super Bowl, we consume an average of 1,200 calories from snacking alone, making Super Bowl Sunday the second-largest food consumption day of the year after Thanksgiving.
The real lingering question is; what dishes should we make and bring to our parties that are semi-healthy so we can a) stick to our New Year’s Resolutions and b) not fall into temptation by all the processed foods that will be in front of us?
So, I have scoured the internet and found some great recipes to share for the big game (now keep in mind I was searching primarily for gluten-free and pescatarian foods that do not contain nuts (nut-allergy))! Most of these are not low calorie dishes, however they are much more nutritious (when cooking with natural ingredients) than your average Super Bowl dishes and they steer away from processed foods, while still fulfilling our yummy game day cravings!
And if you run out of time and just need to grab something last minute, it's always safe to bring a shrimp platter, steamed edamame, a veggie platter, homemade popcorn...and vegetarian chili and corn chips is always a winner!
What are you planning to make for Super Bowl Sunday?!
