Healthy Super Bowl Recipes

Whether or not you like football, the Super Bowl is a great reason for a party, even if a party environment at home. Skip the little weenies in the crockpot and create some fun healthy Super Bowl recipes that don’t ruin the New Year you’re rocking. You’ll wake up ready for that Monday morning workout.

A few suggestions to prevent that Monday after Super Bowl food hangover:

  • Eat like you would any other meal – don’t let munching linger for hours
  • Consider having a protein shake before you go, especially if you don’t know what will be there
  • Have a plate of veggies to start
  • Find your way to the protein and healthy fat items
  • If you’re not hosting, bring healthy Super Bowl recipes to share
  • Others have food sensitivities too – consider labeling foods for guests
  • Know your triggers – if starting on the chips mean you’ll start a binge leave them alone (or at the store)
  • When you’re done, be done – the kitchen closes after you eat

Instead of a Spectator Sport

You can make it active with pushups, wall sits, or planks the family can all get involved in. Pick your teams and when the opponent scores:

  • Touch down = 7 push ups
  • Extra point = minute plank

I like to make it cumulative. That is, the second time the other team scores, you have do 14 pushups… etc. Pick carefully! I did this with a high school friend during an interstate rivalry once and was pretty sore the next day! Dressed in a way not conducive to exercise? Save your point payoff for your Monday workout!

Healthy Super Bowl Recipes to Inspire You

Hemp Heart Ranch Dip

Hemp hearts are packed with protein and healthy fat. They can be a crunchy topping for salads and they get creamy when combined with oil so you can create dips and salad dressings with them for a dairy-free, soy-free fit food option.

Ingredients:

Instructions:

Combine everything through the lemon juice in your Nutribullet and blend until smooth. Add remaining three ingredients and blend just to combine but leave some specks! Prepare it the day before for the best flavor.

Flip: Use it thick as a dip or add water for a salad dressing. Even for your Super Bowl party you can serve endive for dipping in a thinner dressing instead of a dip for heartier veggies.

Spinach Artichoke Dip

Ingredients:

Instructions:

Use an S blade in a food processor or add all ingredients to your Nutribullet. Process until smooth and then adjust seasonings. Refrigerate at least two hours for best flavor. Serve chilled. This is so good as a dip, or a hearty spread and filling for wraps, even to tossed with your favorite noodles. Add some protein and dinner is served!

Flip: Double it. You’re going to love it.
