Healthy Take on Super Bowl Snacks

Okay, I'll cut the small talk for this one. We all know that this coming Sunday is going to be all about football and food, so I thought I would give some healthier suggestions for Super Bowl Snacks.

Buffalo Cauliflower Bites

  • Drizzle the remaining hot sauce onto florets as they are cooling
  • Enjoy!

Chex-Crusted Chicken Nuggets

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups of Chex Cereal (measure before crushing)
  • 6-8 Chicken Strips
  • 2 Whole Eggs
  • 1 Cup Coconut Flour
  • 1 Tsp of Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tsp of Paprika
  • Sea Salt & Pepper to taste

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425°
  • With a rolling pin, crush up Chex into very small pieces (can use a food processor too!)
  • Mix coconut flour and seasonings in one bowl, then beat eggs and place in a separate bowl
  • Cut up chicken strips into "nugget" size pieces and dip pieces into (1) egg mixture, (2) flour mixture, then (3) Chex mixture
  • Place on baking sheet and cook for 16 minutes, flipping after 8 minutes

Guacamole 

Ingredients

  • 2 Whole Avocados
  • 1/2 Red Onion
  • 1 Tbsp of Lime Juice
  • 1 Tsp of Sea Salt
  • 1 Tsp of Pepper
  • 1 Tsp of Minced Garlic
  • 1/4 Cup of Tomatoes
  • 1 Tbsp of Cilantro (optional)
  • 1 Tsp of Red Chilli Flakes

Directions

  • Cut and mash avocados then combine rest of ingredients!

Quick Tip: I use endives to dip in the guac to keep things a little bit lighter. Endives are a leafy vegetable similar to lettuce but a little firmer so great for dipping!

Favourite Store-Bought Snacks

These are some of my favourite brans and healthier alternatives to some game day snacks. The number one thing I look at is INGREDIENTS. Can I read all of the ingredients? Can I pronounce them? Do I know what they are? It's important to know what you're putting in your body, especially with prepackaged foods - there's always better options!
