Healthy Snacks For Your Super Bowl Party

Super Bowl Sunday equals Super Bowl snack time. Every year we look forward to snaking on tasty fatty items like chips, dips, wings, and pizza. This year I'm going to strive for healthier snacks. I know that sounds boring, but I've found some delicious dishes that just might work! Offer your guests these 'better-for-you' alternatives to the classics. With tasty food like this, you won't even miss the guacamole, ranch dip, or chicken wings! Yea!

Mango Shrimp Skewers

 
 

Food on a stick is always a hit at parties. Hands stay clean, and the dish is easier to serve. Mango shrimp skewers are quick and easy to cook up and will keep guests coming back for more.

Non-fat Yogurt Dill Dip and Veggies

 
 

Replace ranch dip with this creamy yogurt dip — it's made from nonfat Greek yogurt, which means it's tangy and full of protein. Add a little cayenne for an extra kick. Try various veggies with this dip, like snap peas, edamame or mushrooms.

Edamole! Ole!

 
 

Even though guacamole is made with healthy fat, you can have too much of a good thing. Swap out avocados for edamame, and you've got yourself some nutritious edamole! This chip dip is full of protein, low in fat, and best of all, tastes good.

Meatballs

 
 

Nothing like a tomatoey, cheesy meatball on top pita bread or crackers. Use low-fat cheese and lean beef with a low sodium and sugar tomato sauce and you got yourself a winner! Mama Mia'

Hummus

 
 

Classic hummus is a great snack to have around because it complements almost everything — veggies, bread, crackers, or pita. For a great twist - serve with artichoke hearts!

Fruit Kabobs

 
 

Make these kabobs from cantaloupe, grapes, apples, pineapple, strawberries and more. Try serving with cottage cheese. Yes, low fat cottage cheese. It's full of protein and taste.

Vegan Chili

 
 

Chili is a great way to warm up on a cold winter day. But, many chili recipes are packed with calories, fat and sodium. This vegan chili uses fresh squash, quinoa and black beans to create an incredibly filling and surprising tasty meal that is also light and healthy.

Turkey Wraps

 
 

Wraps are great finger food. Use whole wheat tortillas and fill with thin sliced low sodium turkey, low fat Swiss cheese, tomatoes, lettuce and avocado. Try Dijon mustard for a lighter dressing with less fat and calories.
