Are you ready for some football? It’s that time of year that the pigskin goes flying and many diet New Year’s resolutions go crashing. But if one of your goals is to eat more healthfully this year, then I’ve got some good news for you. Here are some tastefully light recipes that won’t wreck your budget or tip the scales.
Baked Salmon Balls with Orange Pineapple Glaze
These salmon balls are baked and not fried so you can snack more guilt-free. Not to mention, because this recipe calls for wild salmon, you’ll be packing up on the healthy omega fatty acids too!
Curry Chicken Salad Wraps
Who said that you can’t have salad while enjoying the Super Bowl? Well, actually it’s more like a reverse salad or wrap. Here’s how to do it: Fill bibb or romaine leaf lettuce with generous portions of this curry chicken salad, wrap and eat. If you want to make it more festive then add cranberry, raisins, or grapes.
Crispy Baked Chicken Wings
Every good Super Bowl party deserves to have some chicken wings. Try these crispy baked chicken wings for your Super Bowl party or next house gathering. That’s right, they are tastefully baked and not fried…that’s a win.
Crispy Baked Mozzarella Bites
There is something about biting into cheese that been cooked until it’s stretchy and hot that just makes me smile. These will make you smile too. They are baked mozzarella bites with homemade marinara sauce.
Beef and Chicken Tacos
Pizza, tacos and wings…are consistent crowd favorites. Take a page from the DLS handbook and create a taco bar at your Super Bowl game day event. Lighten it up by sticking to options that are grilled and not drenched in sauce or oils. As well as lean cuts of beef, chicken breast, fish and shrimp make for great options too. Load up your taco bar with healthier options like fresh broccoli, lettuce and tomatoes like we did at this Dora Cooking party. Instead of sour cream, dress up some plain Greek yogurt with a little salt and pepper and you are on your way.
Cauliflower Buffalo Bites
For the vegetarians and those that prefer a non-meat option, these cauliflower buffalo bites are certainly the way to go. Serve it as an appetizer or a tasty side.
Not as guilt-free but so tasty are my Sticky Strawberry Barbecue Hot Wings and these Chesapeake Crab and Avocado Eggs
And there you have it… guilt-free Super Bowl snacking that won’t wreck your diet. Are you entertaining for the Super Bowl?
