I spent most of the day preparing some healthy appetizers for tonight’s Superbowl. We are having a few friends over to watch the game and snacks are necessary! I stuck to healthy and light options! It’s easy to overeat during football games, but overeating healthy foods isn’t as bad. I understand that overeating is still unhealthy, but I would feel better after eating a bucket of carrots rather than a bucket of fries. Not that I wouldn’t love downing a bucket of fries. There will be more food brought over, but here is an idea of what we are having tonight and what recipes you’ll see next week.
I made a couple of team themed trail mixes.
My mom used to make little smokies wrapped in bacon and drowned in butter and brown sugar, although those were amazing; they were horrible for you. Moderation, himself, couldn’t even hold back from going back for more. I made a lighter version of her smokies with honey, turkey bacon, turkey smokies and a little brown sugar sprinkle.
I had a blast making these dessert pizzas. I made a chocolate peanut butter football dessert pizza and a gluten free pizza!
I can’t get over how delicious the chocolate peanut butter dessert pizza tastes. It’s like a Reese’s peanut butter cup cake!
My favorite was the gluten free pizza! I was telling my friend, Anna, who is 100% gluten free about it and that it would be a perfect fit for her office parties. I guarantee I’ll be eating this all night. I made one side Broncos themed and the other side Seahawks themed!
Every party needs vegetables! I filled a far with carrots and celery. For the dip, I used roasted garlic hummus.
Along with the vegetables, you’ll need fruit! I made a huge bowl of fruit and drizzled lemon juice all over them. The lemon juice gives them and extra kick of flavor and keeps them fresh.
I made cute little pineapple shrimp cucumber party poppers!
Jeremy loves mushrooms. I do not! I made him cheesy taco stuffed mushrooms for tonight.
Instead of buying a bad of fried potato or tortilla chips, I made my own baked tortilla chips! I served them with corn and black bean salsa. I like them dipped in salsa!
For the ladies, I bought red wine and a couple mixers. Jeremy’s mom bought me a raspberry long island kit for Christmas, so I may be whipping some of those out tonight, too. I bought some light canned beer (in the refrigerator) and some wheat beer. I have frosted mugs in the freezer for those.
I don’t have a fancy set up or any cute labels (Maybe next year), but the food is just as great!
I may have went a little crazy Instagraming my preparation, but I had so much fun! Sorry if I was annoying you.
I’d love to know what you are having at your Superbowl party tonight!
