ImageRemember that time you fell asleep during the 3rd quarter last year from your Super Bowl food coma?! It seems that every year there are more side dishes than players on the sidelines! So my Pinterest boards and twitter feed has blown up for the past 2 weeks to prep everybody for glorious Sunday. So I wanted to do something a little different. I’m not about to say cut out the beer, wings, pigs-in-a-blanket, and cookies because that would be the pot calling the kettle black. So this blog is going to be on recipes! If you have a classic recipe that everyone has been waiting for since the last super bowl, see if you can swap one or two items in it for a healthier option. So this isn’t just about the Super Bowl – but pots lucks and gets togethers in general!

Beverages: This website has a plethora of items to help you chose the lighter beverage on your waistline if you so choose.

My top 3 picks:

  • Michelob Ultra (95 calories/12 oz)
  • Shiner Light Blonde (99 calories/12 oz)
  • 312 Goose Island Urban Wheat Ale (135 calories/12 oz)

Appetizers: fruit tray, veg tray, cheese/meat/cracker tray, nut mix, salsa, pico de gallo, guacamole, 7-layer dip, hummus, cauliflower bites in buffalo sauce, crockpot meatballs, homemade trail mix, mini corn dogs, baked mozzarella cheese sticks, stuffed peppers

My top 3 picks:


mini turkey corndogs

Main Dishes: Chili, mini corn dogs, grilled and baked wings, make-your-own pizza, hamburgers, bratwurst, crockpot BBQ chicken, baked chicken tenders, taco bar

My top 3 picks:


Lemon bars

Desserts: The big battle here is portion size! Make miniature cookies, brownies, and cupcakes (and if you are serving them in a pan cut it smaller than normal). I honestly don’t have a favorite dessert but my go-to websites when I do want something semi-healthy for desserts is or  so find something your taste buds desire!

My top 3 picks:

So eat for the health of it!
