And they’re all super easy with everyday ingredients.
Mostly Healthy Super Bowl Recipe Roundup
The Vegetarian Picks:
LowFat Avocado Ranch Dressing (gluten free)
This creamy number is made with avocado, nonfat Greek yogurt, and a little mayo. Use for salads, pasta, spreads, dips.
Guiltless French Onion Dip (gluten free)
This creamy, french onion dip takes five minutes to make…then you just chill. Since it uses nonfat Greek yogurt instead of sour cream, it has more protein, less fat, and fewer calories that a traditional, French Onion Dip.
Restaurant Style Salsa in 5 Minutes (vegan and gluten free)
Make blender salsa in 5 minutes during ANY season of the year. This recipe uses canned tomatoes and (always available) fresh ingredients like cilantro, jalapeño, garlic, and onion.
Lemony Kale Chickpea Avocado Salad (vegan and gluten free)
Fresh avocados, chickpeas, and kale dressed in a lemony vinaigrette make this the perfect, nutritious salad any season of the year!
Meatless Lentil Chili (vegan and gluten free)
Skip the beef and make this hearty, tomato-y, (green lentil) chili in one hour with one pot and NO slow-cooker. Even better the second day!
Accidentally Awesome Vegan Chili with NO Weird Ingredients (vegan and gluten free)
This awesome crock-pot chili uses onion, celery, carrots, beans, corn, and tomatoes…and lots of them! It’s super kid-friendly too…not spicy!
The Non-Vegetarian Ones…but still pretty darned healthy:
Steak Nachos con Filet Mignon (gluten free)
This crowd-pleaser is loaded with beans, rice, steak, and fresh garden vegetables.
Black Forest White Cheddar Panini (can be made with gluten free bread)
Grilled cheese for grown ups! Sliced sourdough with aioli, Black forest ham, white cheddar, fresh arugula, and red onion…all toasted to perfection. Perfect for game day bites or a soup and salad sit down.
Daytime Ale and Jack Chili Mac (can be made with gluten free pasta)
Daytime Ale and Jack Chili Mac is a one-pot, lightened up, 30-minute, chili mac made with whole grain pasta and ground turkey instead of beef. It’s comfort food, game day grub!
White Cheddar Beer Brat Chowder (the least healthy of them all)
This creamy, savory, cheesy, chowder is made with bratwurst sausage links and sweet potatoes. It’s the perfect, game day chow!
