Clean Super Bowl Treats: 4 Recipes For A Healthier Super Bowl Party

Even if you're preparing for a contest, you can still enjoy eating and socializing during the Super Bowl. Here are the clean recipes you need!

Last year, I was only a month into preparing for my first contest when my house was suddenly full of men guzzling beer and eating nachos, wings, and pizza in celebration of the big game. Although I was tempted by all this delicious food, I was not going to let the Super Bowl celebration derail my goal of stepping on stage!

Necessity breeds creativity. I met the challenge and created healthy snacks so my diet wouldn't keep me from socializing and enjoying the game. These snacks came in the form of the following four recipes. They looked and smelled so good that the guys at my house were eyeing my food curiously and enviously. When I offered to share, they were impressed that these flavorful treats were, in fact, healthy!

These recipes work for your Super Bowl get-together, and you can use them as go-to snacks for any party. Enjoy!

1

  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges are slightly brown.
  6. Top with chopped cilantro and enjoy!

Great stuff Jillian. So happy to see your recipes on here. Sweet potato fries are key for me, I will be packing my own to the Superbowl party this weekend.

Fascinated by the Kale chips. How crisp do they actually get? I have never seen that.

That flatbread looks yummy. I love kale chips and baked yam fries, sometimes I make them in the George Forman grill.

Ooh! Kale chips, I'll have to try that.
Unfortunately, I think I'll be the only taker for that dish if I try it for Superbowl weekend. The other guys aren't as open to the healthy stuff as I am.
