Homemade Bruschetta (Gluten-Free)

Why is game day food so bad for you? I know, I know. Because it's so incredibly tasty and it's a known fact that the bad stuff often tastes the best. Now I love my fair share of cheese fries, buffalo wings and Mozzarella sticks, but I also prefer some lighter options to be thrown into the mix as well.

If you're like me and want a healthier option available for the Super Bowl this weekend, homemade bruschetta is the way to go. You can have it prepared in 5 minutes, plus it's perfect for a crowd and something everyone will enjoy. I personally won't be watching the Super Bowl this year since my team (the Giants) had a less than stellar year...and if I do, it will solely be for the commercials. But I still might help myself to some tasty (and healthy!) treats since it's the perfect excuse to do so. Have a great weekend!
