Super Bowl Sunday is coming up fast. Although I don’t participate in any part of this event – I can offer some assistance as to how this night can be made that much healthier. We know this is the biggest day for business for fast foods, delivered foods and processed over sugared and over salted snacks. But wouldn’t it just be easier to make your own, to serve and have something healthy to munch on? If your man will be in another room watching the game, take it upon yourself to supply your home or his party with some healthy all in one bowl snacks!
Here are some suggestions:
Make a Trail Mix – (recipe below)
Kale Chips – make at least 4 batches or more. They will win over any “sour cream n’ onion” chip lover, anyday!
Guacamole – with some homemade corn tortilla’s
White Bean Dip – with some crispy crackers
Salsa – with corn chips
Coco Bliss Balls – because they look and taste better than Timbits! I promise
Super Bowl of Trail Mix
1 cup almonds – heart healthy
1 cup cashews – makes you happy, who doesn’t love a cashew
1 cup pumpkin seeds (loaded with zinc – great for prostate health) may as well take advantage while a whole bunch of men will be eating them!!
1 cup raisins or Goji Berries (or both) – some natural sweetness, fiber and antioxidants
1/2 cup hemp seeds – omega rich healthy fats
1 cup cacao nibs or dark chocolate chips – it’s not complete without some chocolate
1 cup coconut flakes – added texture, flavour and crunch
1/4 tsp sea salt – (optional) to balance out the flavours
Toss all ingredients together in a large bowl and serve. Refill when done!
Got other ideas?
What are you planning on having at your party?
