Your Easy, Healthy Super Bowl Menu

The Super Bowl is a great time to gather with friends and family over food. Although it's not typically the most healthy food. Try this menu for a healthier take on this year's festivities:

 

Appetizers:

  1. Chicken, beef or tofu skewers: Slice any of those options lengthwise, top with your favorite marinade and grill. Serve on skewers for less mess!
  2. Crudite cups: Fill red bell peppers or top cucumber slices with one part low-fat cream cheese and one part low-fat brie, mixed with onion, garlic and lemon zest.
  3. Popcorn: cook light popcorn and top with grated parmesan cheese, serve warm

Main Course:

  1. Halftime chili: Combine 1 can low-sodium broth, 1 can low-sodium beans, 1 can crushed tomatoes, 1/2 diced medium onion, 1 bell pepper diced, 1 pound cooked lean meat (like turkey, chicken or beef), 1 tbsp. minced garlic, 1 tbsp. paprika, 1 tbsp. cumin and a hint of ground pepper for a fail-safe main dish. Keep on low during the game so your guests can eat when they're hungry and ready!
  2. Sweet potato fries: Slice sweet potatoes into fry-shape pieces (or purchase pre-sliced in the produce section), place on a baking sheet and top with a sprinkle of paprika and salt. Bake on 350 for approx. 20 minutes or until soft (note: a thicker cut will require more cooking time).
  3. Seasonal salad: Toss a bag of mixed baby greens or spinach with low-fat blue cheese, walnuts, pomegranate seeds and a light vinaigrette (such as raspberry, champagne or strawberry vinaigrettes) for a tasty and beautiful salad!

Dessert:

  1. Poached pears: Mix two parts no-sugar-added apple juice with one part apple cider vinegar, 1 tbsp. cinnamon, 1 tbsp. vanilla extract and 1 tbsp. nutmeg. Place whole pears on a baking sheet and drizzle sauce over. Bake on 375 until brown (~10 minutes) and soft.
  2. Apple crumble: Combine 6-7 cups cubed apples with 1/4 cup golden raisins, 1 tbsp. oat flour, 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice, 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1 tbsp. maple syrup and 1/4 tsp. salt in a large bowl. Preheat oven to 375. Spoon into ramekins coated with cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine 1/3 cup oat flour, 1 cup oatmeal, 1/4 c brown sugar, 1 tsp. cinnamon, dash of salt, 1/4 cup chilled light butter, 1/4 cup walnuts chopped and 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes. Top the apple mixture with oat mixture and bake for ~20 minutes or until browned.

 

With these great recipes, the Super Bowl can be an enjoyable and healthy experience for you and yours! Enjoy!
