Super Bowl Clean Eats

Super Bowl is this month 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 grain free tortilla chips on the side.

For an easy and tasty appetizer try Gail’s Eggplant Dip. Serve it with some healthy crackers or chips and I promise this will be a hit at the party. 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 Cauliflower Hummus or Clean Bean Salsa and serve them up with some healthy crackers or chips. For those of you following BodyDesigns Two-Week Detox Plan the first 3 recipes are all detox friendly.
