Healthy Super Bowl Menu

Your favorite team might not be in the Super Bowl but that doesn’t stop most people from having a little party.  Along with football comes the excitement of watching the commercials and of course munching on some game time food.

Traditional Super Bowl food includes chips, dips and fried wings!  This year try replacing some of those junk foods with these delicious recipes that won’t ruin your clean eating plan.

First, we have a Bison Chili.  Chili goes great with football but it doesn’t have to be heavy.  This light chili skips the beans for a lower carb variety that also is detox friendly if you are following BodyDesigns Two-Week Detox Plan and paleo friendly for those of you avoiding legumes.  Throw it in the Crock Pot to cook while you prepare some other food.  Serve it in bowls with some healthy chips and you have a great start to your menu.

What would the Super Bowl be without some pizza right?  There are two options for healthy pizza – you can make a Cauliflower Crust Pizza which will have cheese so it will not be detox friendly OR you can make a Clean Chicken Pizza.  The recipe for Cauliflower Crust Pizza can be found here.  Below is the Chicken Crust pizza.  You can serve it traditionally with sauce and cheese or try something detox friendly like tomato paste, avocado and grilled vegetables.  Either way you will enjoy a tasty pizza without ruining your clean eating plan.

Clean Chicken Crust Pizza

Healthy Super Bowl Menu, Chicken Crust Pizza

 

Ingredients:

16 oz. organic ground chicken, 98% fat free
1/3 cup egg whites
2 T coconut flour
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. hot red pepper flakes

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
3. Mix all ingredients in a medium size bowl.
4. Using a fork, spread the chicken crust onto the parchment paper, taking your time to get it even and spread from end to end. It will be thin.
5. Bake for 20 minutes.

Depending on what you want to do with the pizza, you can either top it with sauce, cheese and seasonings and put it back into the oven to melt or you can remove it for a cold version. The cold version would be topping it with either tomato paste, avocado and vegetables or ricotti cheese, tomatoes and basil.

Last, but not least, what are you going to drink? We could eat healthy and drink a bunch of high calorie beverages but that kind of defeats the purpose wouldn’t you agree? You don’t have to forego the alcohol altogether but having a plan with some low sugar options that won’t weigh you down (literally) can make the night more enjoyable.  Check out my guide on How to Keep Holiday Cocktails Off Your Waistline for some great drink ideas.
