So I’m not sure if you’re aware of this or not, but coming up on January 9th there’s this little football game called the BCS National Championship and correct me if I’m wrong, but I think LSU might be playing in it?! Yeah, so if you are part of the group that will not be attending the game but having a party at your house, I have some healthy food options for you. I know all the “big” games always seem to fall right after everyone has made their resolutions to be healthy, so I hope you will find this info useful. Disclaimer: I’m not actually having a party at my house. So those of you who know where I live, please do not show up, lol! But my boyfriend’s parents are coming over for the Saint’s game on Saturday so I might throw a few of these together.
Guilt Free Buffalo “Wings”: This recipe from Women’s Health Magazine swaps traditional wings for chicken tenders for more protein and fewer calories. Serve with carrots and celery on the side to make this dish even healthier. A tubful of takeout chicken wings can hit the 1,000 calorie mark, but this guiltless version contains just over 200 calories a serving!
Black Bean Hummus: This twist on a popular dip uses black beans to add some major fiber to satisfy your hunger and make you feel full longer. This means less gorging on all the cookies, pies, and brownies that sit out during the game! Try it with fresh veggies or toasted whole wheat pita bread.
Stuffed Turkey Burgers: The Food Network offers up a delicious alternative to the dripping-in-fat cheeseburger. Try this version for less fat AND less saturated fat!
Holly Clegg’s Easy Chili: Here’s a great recipe from local chef and author, Holly Clegg. She uses sirloin to make this lean, mean chili dish! Best of all, it’s quick, easy, and virtually no clean up- in Holly’s words “dump and stir”!
So what I wanna know is… What will you be serving at your football party?
