You Won’t Fumble With These Super Bowl Snacks!

Are you ready for some football? I am, but one thing I am not ready for is all the processed and high fat foods that appear while watching the commercials… I mean the Super Bowl.

Recently, I set out to change my lifestyle to make healthier food choices and along the way I have found many delicious recipes I would love to share.

If you have been invited to a Super Bowl party this weekend and want to bring something along you know you can enjoy without feeling guilty, look no further…

A favorite of mine is this Buffalo Chickpea Dip I discovered at a party hosted by my friend’s mom. I thought my days of digging into Buffalo dips were over, but I was wrong… so wrong!

Who needs fried foods when you have this recipe up your sleeve? (You can also sub any vegetable for the avocado—think zucchini or asparagus!)

Loaded potatoes with all the fixings may be yummy, but certainly not the healthiest of choices.  Here is a great alternative!
