10 Healthy Appetizers for Super Bowl Party

SHARE ON YUMMLY --> Yum

Hosting or attending a Super Bowl party on Sunday? 

How fun. Game Day has always been an unspoken holiday in the United States--and another opportunity for friends and family to celebrate. However, Game Day could also ruin your clean eating diet, with junk food and alcohol appearing everywhere, tempting you to splurge on calories and fat.


To continue your weight loss journey with clean eating and still enjoy food at Super Bowl parties, consider trying the easy healthy appetizers below.

They're quick, tasty and crowd-pleasing, but most of all, they're healthy. From creamy dip to crunchy veggies, these clean eating ideas and weight loss foods help you stay on track of a clean eating diet without feeling deprived during the fun-filled American "holiday."

1. Veggies and Hummus Dip

Crunchy veggies in creamy hummus? Yes please!


2. All Natural Corn Chips and Greek Yogurt Guacamole



Have you tried Trader Joe's Reduced Guilt Chunky Guacamole?

It's delicious! Made with nonfat Greek yogurt, this lighter guacamole contains only 30 calories and two grams of fat per serving. Yet it tastes just as good, if not better, than traditional guacamole. I'm in LOVE with it! Hope you give it a try.




Oh my god! They are delicious! They're sprouted tortilla chips, which means the grains are sprouted to increase nutrients and better digestion. The black beans also reduce cholesterol. Plus, and again, they're delicious.



3. Apple Banana and All Natural Peanut Butter Stack

Just stack all-natural peanut butter, Apple slices and banana together, and enjoy!



4. 3-Ingredient Peanut Butter Fruit Dip (by Cooking Classy)

What a creative idea by Cooking Classy! This fruit dip is easy-to-do and protein-rich. To make it even cleaner, I recommend using all-natural, freshly-ground peanut butter, raw honey and nonfat plain Greek yogurt. Still, this is a wonderful and creative idea, and here's the original recipe: Peanut Butter Fruit Dip

5. Cucumber and All-Natural Turkey Sandwich Bites

Simple and protein-rich, these bite-sized sandwiches are great for low-carb diet. I eat these often as snack and saw them fitting to be served at Super Bowl parties.


6. Healthy Buffalo Cauliflower Bites (by Gal on a Mission)

Cauliflower fans are in luck because these buffalo-flavored snacks are crunchy, tasteful and nutritious. Rich in vitamin C, folate and fiber, cauliflower is one of the most nutrient-dense vegetables in the world. Due to its thick texture, it can be cooked in various ways, including being used as pizza crust. 

This clean eating recipe transformed cauliflower into a classic Super Bowl appetizer, with saucy, finger-licking buffalo spices and creamy dip on the side. I absolutely adore this idea, and hope you like it too.

7. Tuna Salad on Roasted Seaweed

Many consider seaweed as super food because it's abundant in iodine, which keeps thyroids healthy and therefore regulates hormones. Seaweed also reduces inflammation and is rich in antioxidants.

Seaweed, especially roasted seaweed in this clean eating appetizer, is also tasty. It's slightly salty, crunchy and wholesomely delicious. Add tuna salad on top and these make the perfect bite-sized snack.

8. Crunchy Tomato Mozzarella Pesto Stack (recipe from Clean Eating Recipes Blog)

Not sure about you but I feel that pesto makes everything tastier. The combination of crunchy cucumber and soft tomato also works well. Overall, this was a wonderful, delicious appetizer to both serve and enjoy.



9. Paleo and Low Carb Deviled Eggs (by Ripped Recipes)

These low carb treats are made tastier with avocado. Deviled eggs are already crowd-pleasers--and I've a feeling that these avocado-filled deviled eggs will please even more.

10. Natural and Organic Chips and Snacks

Well it's the Super Bowl after all, and you deserve to splurge. But if you splurge, splurge on natural and organic snacks that are non-GMO and contain little preservatives. As long as you're aware, you'll find ample choices like Terra Chips (see below), vacuum-fried vegetable, Nuts and Dried Fruit Mixes and organic chocolate.

Terra Chips are awesome! They are made with real vegetables, are non-GMO and gluten- and preservatives-free. They're crunchy, delightful and great for snacking.

Get them at Terra Sweets and Beets.



Another awesome idea is mixed nuts and I like Kirkland's Signature Extra Fancy Unsalted Mixed Nuts. The mix includes almonds, peanuts, cashews...basically, all your favorites, and are fun to nibble on and delectable to taste.

Get them at Kirkland Mixed Nuts.


Happy Super Bowl Day!

I know. There's no such thing.

Well, I hope you enjoy the game, the gatherings and the food anyway.

Breakfast

Chives and Feta Scrambled Eggs


Protein is always a good idea for breakfast. Today's egg scramble contains plenty of protein, as well as flavor. The feta adds natural saltiness and the chives are earthy and sweet. I really liked this combo. Hope you do too.

Enjoy recipe at Clean Eating Breakfast.





Mid Morning Snack

Cashew Cookie Larabar (from here)

These all-natural bars are made with only fruits and nuts, and are sweet and delicious. They're the perfect snack to hold you over til' lunch.

Lunch

Chicken Cucumber Dill Salad

In Clean Eating, cucumbers are a must. They're light, crunchy and slightly sweet. They're just about perfect in every meal.

Today's cucumber salad is both refreshing and nutritious, with chicken's protein value and cucumber's fresh flavor. Plus, it was easy to make.

Get recipe at healthy lunch idea.



Afternoon Snack

Mixed Fruit Bowl

Need an afternoon sugar kick? Skip the candy bars and grab a bowl of fresh fruit concoction--a lighter and more delicious choice.



Dinner

Clean Eating Orange Chicken

Most orange chicken recipes require heavy breaking and frying--none of which is healthy. This clean eating orange chicken recipe needs just a little bit of oil and ingredients, and is a much healthier choice.

Fine recipe at clean eating dinner.

Breakfast

Whole Wheat Toast with All-Natural Peanut Butter, Topped with Banana Slices and Blueberries



This breakfast has the best of everything: while the whole wheat toast provides plenty of complex carbohydrate for energy, the all-natural peanut butter adds muscle-building protein. Then, the bananas and blueberries add vitamins, minerals, potassium and antioxidants.

The best part of this breakfast, though, lies in its sweet deliciousness.

Hope you enjoy this idea!


Mid Morning Snack

Broil 4-5 minutes on each side, or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.

Healthy Lunch Recipe: Avocado Tomato Open Face Sandwich

Yum



A HUGE misconception about the clean eating diet is that clean eating meals, or weight loss foods in general, require fancy, exotic ingredients and complicated steps to make.

In reality, a clean eating diet is simple: use as little processed ingredients as possible, and make quick and easy meals. For these reasons, clean eating has gained much popularity in the last few years. It's simple, tasty and creates a healthy lifestyle. What's not to like?

Clean eating diet can also help you lose weight, because eliminating processed ingredients eliminates refined sugar, hydrogenated oil and all the harsh artificial ingredients that induce weight gain. By simplifying your meals, you reduce unnecessary calories--and most of them develop into fat.


Today's healthy lunch and clean eating recipe reflects just the simplicity that defines clean eating.

With only five ingredients, this juicy, delicious and completely clean sandwich was a pleasure to both make and eat.

Plus, it took less than five minutes to make. We all like that, don't we?



Healthy Lunch Recipe: Avocado Tomato Open Face Sandwich

Ingredients:
- 1 piece of whole wheat bread, slightly toasted
- 1/2 avocado, peeled, de-cored and sliced
- 2 slices of tomato
- 1 slice of all-natural swiss cheese
- 2-3 leaves of basil, broken
- 1 tea spoon of extra virgin olive oil and 1 tea spoon of organic balsamic vinegar (optional)

Directions:
1. Slice toast in halve, and lay each piece on a plate.
2. Stack swiss cheese, avocado slices and tomato on top. 
3. Splash basil leaves. Then drizzle olive oil and balsamic vinegar, if you choose to use them.

That's all. Now enjoy each bite.




Thanks again for coming by Clean Eating Weight Loss Meal Plan!

I hope you enjoy today's Healthy Lunch Recipe.

(I think you would if you're an avocado-lover.)

I also hope to see you next time!

Breakfast

Organic Cereal with Real Maple Syrup and Mango on the Side



During winter, my go-to healthy breakfast is a bowl of steamy organic grain. I love how cereal is both hearty and filling. With drizzles of real maple syrup--I recommend Coombs Family Farms 100% Pure Organic Maple Syrup by the way (see products section below)--my hot, grainy, healthy breakfast always taste good.

Also, I love adding fruits to breakfast. Fruits offer natural sugar and are delicious. Today, I went with mango.




Mid Morning Snack

Toasted Walnuts

Walnuts are full of nutrition and antioxidants. They're high in omega-3, vitamin E, manganese, copper, iron and a variety of other nutritional content.

After 10-20 minutes of toasting in the oven, walnuts become golden, crispy and snack-able. Enjoy them alone, or on top of yogurt, fruits and such.



Lunch

Turkey Sandwich with All-Natural Turkey Breast Lunch Meat, Whole Wheat Bread and Mayo Made with Safflower Oil

Turkey sandwiches are my go-to lunch. They're quick and easy, and taste great. Plus, they're low in fat and high in nutrition. 

I was happy to discover Safflower Oil Mayo a few years ago. Made from safflower seeds, safflower oil has gained much attention in the health food arena due to its high content of mono saturated fat and vitamin E. It also tastes good, with an earthy and wholesome flavor.

It's a healthy and versatile oil to incorporate into a clean eating diet--and in mayo, it's awesome.

If you haven't tried Safflower Oil Mayo, you must, especially if you're trying to eat clean.



Afternoon Snack

Yogurt-Covered Almonds

What's better than almonds? Cover them in yogurt of course!

Try these. They are delicious!


Dinner

Sweet Cherry Brown Sauce Over Baked Chicken, with Steamed Carrots on the Side

The sweet cherry brown sauce is made with real cherries, pan-seared into soft juice and turned into creamy sauce. It was rich, sweet and mouthwatering. I highly recommend it.
