This Sunday is the biggest snack-day of the year. Homes & bars will be filled with delicious finger foods that eager fans will pile high on their tiny plates… over and over again throughout the four-five hour event. We’re by no means anti-snacking, but there are definitely some healthier options than the “regular offenders” on the table… and certainly ones that are tastier than that day-old veggie-tray that’s been sitting out for hours.
If you’re hosting your own gathering, focus on making things from scratch. There are a LOT of tasty treats that are made unhealthy by adding preservatives, salts, sugar, and other chemicals. By making things (like layered bean dip) from scratch, you can cut back on a lot of unnecessary additions and make the snack better for you—and usually better tasting!
Here are three of our favorite recipes for some delicious finger foods for the biggest football game of the year!
LEMON DROP CHICKEN WINGS:
They’re SUPER easy to make and are a great replacement for the high-calorie/high-sugar wings often served at Super Bowl parties.
These are a great way to liven up that tired vegetable tray. Zucchini naturally lowers cholesterol & blood pressure, and is a good anti-inflammatory, and is even said to reduce the risk of certain cancers. Of course, you don’t have to tell your Super Bowl parties about that…
FRUIT SKEWERS WITH SWEETENED YOGURT DIP:
If you just need something quick to throw together & bring, this is the way to go. Choose your favorite fruits—or ones that show team support! (We vote kiwi & blueberries!) Dip them in this delicious sauce!
