The Super bowl is to America what the World Cup is to the rest of the world. This is the game of all games, and it’s practically a holiday. And, like the holidays, it’s an event full of alcohol and high calorie snacks. This year, however, we challenge you to a match. You vs. High Calorie Snacks. Impossible you say? Not this time! Here’s a play that’s sure to win you the game.
5 Healthy “Big Game” snacks under 300 Calories.
1. Baked Cauliflower Poppers via SparkPeople
We’ve always wondered why they call them “Poppers”, but after tasting these, it’s most likely because you pop ‘em in your mouth, and can’t stop smiling. So delicious! These bad boys (or should we say “good boys”) are delicious and low-calorie.
CALORIES: 38.5 | FAT: 2.8g | PROTEIN: 1.2g | CARBS: 3.1g | FIBER: 1.5g
2. Lemon Drop Chicken Wings via health.com
No party is complete without WINGS. They don’t have to be greasy buffalo wings (even though they taste amazing), and if you’re looking for a lighter alternative try these. With only 173 calories per serving, you’ll feel like you scored a touch down in the health department.
3. “Lighten Up” 7 Layered Bean Dip via Popsugar
It’s something we all look for when we see the snack table… The 7-layer bean dip. Oh so delicious, but so not good for us. This recipe asks you to lighten up a bit about snacking because it’s lightened up on the fat factor. See how they did it HERE. Spoiler alert: Non-Fat Plain Greek Yogurt tastes EXACTLY like sour cream. Throw in some vegan cheese, and it’s pretty much a field goal of good flavors.
There’s no reason to not have a good time on the super bowl, and no matter who is the champion, these recipes will make you feel like you came out a winner.
