Healthy Super Bowl Snacks

Superbowl is this Sunday, and many of you will be throwing or attending parties. Normally this involves four or more hours of nonstop snacking, so here are some healthy foods you can nosh on without compromising your health goals. Make them for you own party, or bring them along to share with your friends.

  • Make your own hummus with chick peas, garlic, tahini, olive oil, and lemon juice. Serve with veggie sticks or toasted whole wheat pita bread. It's high in protein and flavor.
  • Use your microwave to make fat-free, air-popped popcorn. Place two tablespoons of kernels in the bottom of a small brown lunch bag. Fold the top three times and place the bag in the microwave on its side. Microwave for two to two and a half minutes, or until the popping slows down. Season with salt or nutritional yeast.
  • Make creamy zucchini boats. They're great finger food, easy to make, and healthier than potato chips and dip.
  • Be different and saute some polenta stacks. I like to add mozzarella cheese and tomatoes to mine, but get creative and use other healthy ingredients.
  • Eating chili on Super Bowl Sunday was a tradition in my house, but the beef offers more saturated fat and calories than I need. So make a healthier version with beans and veggies. Check out my recipe for Vegetarian Black Bean Chili.

Also, try putting a thin layer of hummus on a sliced cucmber and add a tiny bit of garlic salsa on top. Looks like a pretty canape and tastes great.

Any time I have a party, I serve fresh veggies and's a great alternative to fatty chips and wings and pizza.

Veggies and dip! Hummus to me is just ick. It's like dip with sand in it. :sick:

That vegetarian black bean chili recipe is soooo good! I'm going to serve that for sure. And I think I'll try the zucchini boats, too. I've been meaning to anyway.
