5 Game Day Recipes!
Looking for some healthy options for the big game? Gameday snacking can be a major fumble for your fitness goals, so skip the sliders, nachos and wings, and try one of these delicious, healthy alternatives instead. We asked our STR!VE team for their “go-to” favorites.
Three-Layer Superfood Party Dip from Holly
Via Healthy Eating 101
It wouldn’t be a party without dip. But most dips are full of fat and calories – think mayo, sour cream and cream cheese. Here’s an easy and delicious option that uses Greek yogurt as the base. The black beans and avocados are full of fiber to help you feel full. Try baking your own tortilla chips.
Slow Cooker Chicken Chili from George
Via Cooking Light
An easy option that will fill up the whole crowd! This slow cooker chili is filled with a delicious mix of flavors, with sweet potatoes, cannellini beans and hominy. Just combine the ingredients and slow cook until game time. Once fully cooked – keep on low and serve anytime.
Spinach Dip from Erin
Via Beach Body on Demand
Another classic dip – remade with just 32 calories per serving! This 6-ingredient dip includes healthy, fresh ingredients such as baby spinach, fresh lemon and reduced-fat Greek yogurt. The best part? It takes just 10 minutes to prep! Serve with fresh veggies.
Buffalo Celery Boats from Juliane
Why are hot wings always served with celery and blue cheese? These “cooling” foods are the perfect companion to hot sauce. With this alternative, you get the wonderful combination of flavors without the messy, greasy wings. This recipe has been a hit in Juliane’s home for years – even her kids like them!
