The Super Bowl is more than a game between the National Football League’s premier franchises. For many American households, the game prompts gatherings of friends and family. As folks gather around television screens, an array of snack foods often linger within arm’s reach. These Super Bowls snacks tend to be high in calories, fried, and lack nutritional value. Not to mention, those snacking likely spend several hours sitting on the couch without realizing how much food they have consumed.
I do not say all of this to suggest that Super Bowl viewers should get rid of snacks altogether. Party hosts can make recipe substitutions for healthier snacking. The best part is these snacks are so tasty that guests will not miss the high-fat and greasy traditional Super Bowl fare. Click the image to view the recipe.
