5 Healthy Superbowl Snacks!

5 Healthy Superbowl Snacks

1. Sub Sandwich – best if stuffed with turkey or lean roast beef and tons of lettuce, pickles, tomatoes and onion.  No mayo- use mustard!

2. Hummus – has protein and fiber.   Eat this instead of re fried bean and cheese dip.

3. Fresh Vegetables – hold the ranch dressing.  Fill up on these!

4. Guacamole – Avocados are highly nutritious and are a source of “healthy” monounsaturated fat.  Avoid dips made with mayo and/or lots of sour cream.

5. Chili – Try this recipe from Beachbody.com:

  • 1 lb. ground turkey, extra lean
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 large can (28 oz.) tomatoes, crushed or diced
  • 1 can (12 oz.) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (15 oz.) kidney or pinto beans, rinsed
  • 2 tsp. chili powder (or more to taste)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-2 tsp. lemon juice (Kim’s trick☺)

In a large saucepan, brown ground turkey in olive oil. Spoon out any excess fat. Add onion, garlic, and pepper, and sauté until veggies are soft, about 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Can be served immediately (although leftovers are great, too). Serve with hot sauce to taste. Serves 4.

Preparation time: 15 to 20 minutes
