Fierce Super Bowl Snacks

3 Feb

Super Bowl. It takes me straight to beers, lots of men sitting around the tv, super fatty snacks, laid back atmosphere….my type of Sunday! Minus the beers and fatty snacks. So it’s about time we came up with some ideas to Lead the Way and take care of ourselves while at these parties. I’m going to one and I am saving my cheat meal for that day, but if you are not and want to be super healthy during the party, take any of these three snacks and you’ll be just fine!

For the sandwich fan:

Fresh, Crunchy & Plain Goodness Sandwich Bites

The amount of each ingredient will vary depending on how much you want to take. This recipe includes:
1/2 loaf of European Multigrain Bread (any multigrain bread, I feel this has the most buttery taste against the flavor of the topping). If you’re gluten free, you can get gluten free crackers and skip the bread.

If you’re gluten free, this is my cracker of choice. The Pecan ones are to die!
1 avocado
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinaigrette
White Wine Vinegar
Salt & Pepper
Plain Mustard *or you could spice it up, whatever you’d like
Lemon Juice
Sprouts *optional
Tomato *optional
AT THIS POINT< you can begin building from here. If you feel chicken would be great on these, go for it! I think rotisserie chicken would be great on top. Just an idea;)


Slice bread pieces into 3’s. Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees, or until slightly crispy.

Put sauce together by adding 1 TBSP Olive Oil, 1 TBSP Vinaigrette, 1 TBSP Mustard, splash of white wine vinegar, salt and pepper dash and dash of lemon juice. Whisk together.
When bread is complete, spoon or brush on top of bread a little sauce.

Add thinly sliced avocado and sprouts and you have your healthy sandwich!

and let me tell you, AMAZING!

If you’re a Dip Fan:
No Poblano Dip
Again, you can bring the Gluten Free crackers or just take the dip as is. It will be a healthy contribution.

The original recipe that is a dinner with a Poblano Pepper is located here *it’s kind of famous 😉 https://fierceforward.wordpress.com/2011/10/20/no-poblano-recipe/

Your ingredients. Now, I tried to shred the chicken as I like that texture best with something like this. Garlic paste is above onions, about a tbsp.

Mix one container hummus with 1/2 chopped onion, avocado (can cut down to 1/2 if wanting to reduce fat) and garlic paste.

It’s a pretty awesome dip. Tons of flavor and hearty.

Tomato & Mozarella Skewers:

These are some of my favorite little appetizers that my mom makes for me.

Get 1 container of cherry tomatoes
1 package of mozzarella cheese *you can even get the little mozzarella balls if you’d like
toothpicks
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Basil *optional
Salt & Pepper

Skewer the Mozzarella and tomatoes along with a little basil leaf *optional
drizzle olive oil and salt and pepper on top and your appetizer is complete!
Ok! I confess, I did not make these today for you, dang stock photos..but here is a perfect vision of what it looks like. You can even put the skewers in a bag and shake with the olive oil.

ENJOY YOUR SUPERBOWL PARTIES AND REMEMBER, EVERYTHING IN MODERATION. FIERCE FORWARD! ASH
