Super Healthy Super Bowl!

Super Healthy Super Bowl!!


If you’re anything like me, you look forward to the Super Bowl for one main reason: SNACKS.

When I think of Super Bowl Sunday, I immediately think of nachos, chips with a multitude of different dips, and rice krispie treats shaped like footballs (maybe that’s just my family’s tradition?) These foods are certainly a delicious treat, but it is extremely easy to go overboard in a social situation like this. The downside is too many snacks like these can lead to feeling tired or sluggish- and you don’t want to be asleep by the halftime show! This Super Bowl, make one of these healthier recipes and you’ll be cheering all night long.

  1. Cauliflower Buffalo “Wings” with Greek Yogurt Ranch

Buffalo cauliflower is a perfect way to get more veggies in on game day. Using a low-fat Greek yogurt-based Ranch to dip will give you more protein and less fat than traditional Ranch dressing. The cauliflower wings are best made in an airfryer so you can get that crispy texture without added oils!

  1. Baked BBQ Turkey Meatballs

This totally fits the bill of a classic appetizer you can eat off a toothpick (but make it healthy). Look for a 93-97% lean ground turkey at the grocery store, and opt for a sugar-free barbecue sauce if you can find one.

  1. Loaded Bell Pepper Nachos

Are bell peppers chips? Absolutely not, but this is still a great recipe for anyone looking to cut down on chips. You can even mix it up and use a mixture of peppers and chips in this recipe- either way, these nachos will be higher in fiber and lower in sodium than traditional nachos.

  1. Rainbow Veggie Tray

This may be a given but it had to be included. A veggie tray is a simple yet beautiful way to get some nutrition on the snack table. Choose 4-5 different raw veggies in a variety of colors and arrange them on a spare wooden cutting board or serving tray. All of the different colors and shapes will grab the attention of everyone at the party! Serve with the healthier Greek yogurt ranch (recipe above), hummus, or guacamole to balance it out with some healthy fats.

These recipes are sure to be a hit with your family and friends on game day. After you decide which one you will make, check out these three nutrition tips below:

  1. Load up your plate with veggies first. By choosing veggies first, you are guaranteed to get more nutrients that help your body feel its best. Enjoy the fried foods and creamy dips in moderation by giving them less room on your plate.

  2. Stick to water and other sugar-free beverages. Soda and alcoholic drinks can be sneaky sources of added sugar. Limit soda by choosing a sparkling flavored water instead. For alcoholic drinks, choose light beers or seltzers, and plan to alternate drinks with a glass of water if you will have multiple.

  3. Wait 15 minutes before getting a second helping. Did you know it actually takes our stomach about 15-20 minutes to send a message to our brain saying “I’M FULL”? Because of this, it’s easy to keep eating past the point of feeling hunger. Try taking a break before filling your plate up again- by the time 15 minutes pass, there’s a good chance you won’t want that extra serving! If you are still feeling hungry, reach for any protein or veggie options on the table.

One extra tip I want to leave you with- if you have health goals and are unsure how to get started, you’re in the right place! We can help by creating a customized nutrition plan just for you. Contact hannah@sinfitberlin.com with any questions or comments.
