The Super Bowl is all about football, booze, commercials, and most importantly, snacks. If you’ve been working toward your fitness goals (like me) you don’t want a blow out cheat day to derail your progress. I’m sharing my favorite healthy super bowl snacks to keep your fitness goals on track. Plus, bonus one epic crowd favorite that’s a cheat meal that everyone will love…hint Super Bowl Dip!

GARLIC HUMMUS

Hummus is definitely a go to healthy snack, so why not add it to your healthy Super bowl snacks roster.  Opt for the homemade as this recipes is so easy and fresh you’ll never go back to the store bought kind. Give it a try on game day and you’ll be making it on the regular.

SHISHITO PEPPERS

I love eating these peppers year around. They are not very hot except if you catch a lucky one, but are so healthy for you that they are a super bowl snack essential! You can play with the flavors by adding more garlic or truffle.

Ingredients

  • 4 medium avocados, fairly firm
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea Salt
  • Tajin
  • Pepper

Note: the olive oil and flavorings do not have quantities listed, as they can all be added to your taste.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly spray a rimmed baking sheet with non-stick spray, or gently grease it with olive oil. Cut the avocados into slices (fourths). Drizzle the slices with olive oil, and season generously with salt, pepper, and any toppings of your choice. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until the slices have begun to take on a toasty appearance. If you like the edges crispier, you can let them bake a little longer. Remove and let cool, but serve warm with a toothpick.
