Superbowl is one of my favorite holidays. Not only is football my favorite sport to watch but game day food is awesome! Am I not right?
After spending NUMEROUS Super Bowl Sundays feeling stuffed and uncomfortable after eating way too much I have learned to enjoy my favorite game day eats in a healthier way.
I’ve also learned to pick and choose wisely rather then stuffing my face and eating when I’m not hungry. It’s okay to enjoy the foods you love but keeping in mind portions will help your waistband later!!
Two of my favorite football foods are WINGS & CHILI. I absolutely love them both but I can get a killer belly ache after eating too much of those yummy snacks.
I have a few LIGHTER recipes to share with you and it will help you enjoy your favorite foods without breaking the calorie bank during Superbowl Sunday.
HEALTHY CREAMY BUFFALO PULLED CHICKEN
(Make sure to add more hot sauce to this recipe if you like it spicy!!)
While I do love wings, they are a bit time consuming to make and they can be super messy. I have a toddler to run after and messy hands just won’t work so I will take a pulled buffalo chicken sandwich smothered in hot sauce any day!
This recipe can be served on lettuce wraps, sandwich buns, as a dip or even in a taco shell!
Chili is awesome whether served with rice in a bowl or just as an appetizer dipped with chips.
This chili sneaks in veggies, uses lean beef which cuts some of that unnecessary saturated fat and tastes amazing!!
(You could add beans, cheese or rice if you want which is what I did with the above picture)
Who are you picking to win the Superbowl? I’m choosing the Panthers.
