Healthy Game-Day Recipes
It’s Game Day! Whether you love football or – like me – you watch only for the commercials and the half-time show, it’s a party day. I’m seeing tons of gross food-like products through my twitter feed today – people are making all kinds of junk, it seems, for this game. Now, there’s nothing wrong with a treat now and then, but I think there should be some healthy options on the Game Day buffet spread. Here are some links to healthy game-day recipes.
I posted a healthy and delicious guacamole recipe this past week.
This recipe takes healthy guacamole to a whole new level: Green Pea Guacamole.
Since today’s the big day, here’s a quick Lentil Chili recipe you can throw together in time for kick-off.
This truffle recipe looks easy and delicious: Raw Super Food Chocolate Truffles. I think I might have to make these myself…
This recipe (or a variation) is one of my all-time favorite desserts…I was known to eat a whole pan all by myself when I was pregnant: Nutty Chocolate Crispies.
Also a favorite recipe of mine: Kale Chips. Now, know that these do not get crunchy like a chip, but they get crispy and practically melt in your mouth. (Bet you never thought you’d be making KALE on Game Day?!)
I hope those get you started thinking creatively and healthfully for snacking during the game tonight. If you have other ideas, I’d love to hear them, post a link!
Happy, healthy eating!
