Healthy Recipes for Super Bowl Sunday

Super Bowl is this Sunday and it’s no reason to ruin your clean eating plan. Whether you stay home or go to a friend’s house be prepared with something healthy to eat.

If you want a comfort food try making some Bean Free Chili. This dish is loaded with healthy vegetables instead of beans and can be served with some baked gluten free chips on the side.

For an easy and tasty appetizer try Gail’s Eggplant Dip. Serve it with some gluten free chips or crackers as a healthier alternative to traditional dips. Use the leftovers to top chicken or fish as a tasty alternative to plain grilled chicken.

If you are short on time whip up a quick batch of Bean Free Hummus and serve it with vegetables or gluten free pita chips. For those of you following BodyDesigns Two-Week Detox Plan you can rest assured that all three recipes are Detox Friendly!
