4 Healthy Super Bowl Sunday Snacks

February 4, 2021

Super Bowl Sunday is the easiest day to fall off the healthy wagon. You’re surrounded with fried foods, cheesy and way-too-salty dishes that look so good, are easy to make, and everyone is satisfied with. But, like we’ve said many times, healthy starts from within and that includes the food you eat. 

Although a day of cheating will not ruin your health per say, unhealthy choices turn into unhealthy habits. Also, with the amount and variety of healthy snack recipes, it is not that hard to eat healthy even during the Super Bowl. 

If you’re looking for healthy snack recipes to create for this game sunday look no further. We have compiled a list of 5 healthy snack recipes that are easy to make and don’t take you a lot of time.

Zucchini Chips

This one is a healthy twist on everyone’s favorite snack, chips. Potato chips are amazing and tasty however, they are high in calories and fat. Zucchini chips are a healthier alternative to potato chips and they are just as tasty. The prep time is really short so you can throw them in the oven and use that time to prepare other snacks.

  • 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano

Instruction:

Preheat the oven to 225°. Grease a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Slice zucchini into very thin rounds, using a mandolin if you have one! Pat zucchini with paper towels to draw out excess moisture.

Bake until crispy, about 1 hour 20 minutes, checking after about an hour. Let cool to room temperature before serving.

FOR AIR FRYER
Grease an air fryer basket lightly with cooking spray. Slice zucchini into very thin rounds, using a mandolin if you have one! Pat zucchini with paper towels to draw out excess moisture. 

Omit oil. In a large bowl, toss zucchini with ranch seasoning, oregano, salt, and pepper. Place in a single layer in a basket (a little overlapping is fine!).

No healthy recipe article is complete without a salad am I right. Not everyone loves salads but everyone will like these skewers. They are delicious, nutritious and refreshing to eat. They are also really easy to prepare and you don’t need to turn your stove on at all.

Makes: 4 Servings
Prep Time: 30 min
Total Time: 30 min

Nutritional Info: 147 Calories, 9.3g Fat, 6g Carbs, 4g Protein, 2g Sugar

Ingredients:

  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Mozzarella balls
  • Fresh Basil
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper

Instructions:

Assemble, tomatoes, basil (roll from one end to the other), and mozzarella balls on medium-sized toothpicks. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

To make balsamic glaze, add one cup of balsamic vinegar to a saucepan over medium heat. Once it comes to a boil, set on simmer for about 10-15 minutes until it reduces to a syrup consistency. You can check by dipping a spoon in the balsamic and if it covers the back of it, it’s done. As it cools, it will thicken a bit more then drizzle on top of caprese salad skewers.
