Super Bowl Super Snacks
This Sunday marks the second largest food-intake day, just after Thanksgiving. That’s right, it’s Super Bowl Sunday! Most of us indulge in all things fried, greasy, and always delicious. However, these foods are not always the healthiest or kid-friendly. So here are five recipes to try this weekend that will not only please the masses, but also the mommies.
Corn Flake Baked Chicken Tenders: This recipe was adapted from this one from Fitness Magazine.
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Using chicken breast, slice tenders into strips.
- In a bowl, mix together one egg, one tablespoon of honey and one tablespoon of mustard.
- In another bowl, crush up two cups of corn flakes until they are just crumbs. You don’t want too big of crumbs, but you don’t want sawdust-looking crumbs, either. We put our corn flakes into a bag to crush them, and then placed them into a bowl with a dash of pepper.
- Dip each chicken strip into the egg mixture and then into the corn flake crumbs and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
- Bake chicken for 12-15 minutes, or until the outside is gold and crispy and the insides are no longer pink.
- Serve with your football fans’ favorite sauces!
Cauliflower Pizza Bites: Use cauliflower instead of pizza dough to make these super-yummy and pretty healthy treats!
Buffalo Chicken Pot Stickers: A less-messy and delicious way to get the buffalo chicken into the game day menu.
Healthy Root Chips: Try making these chips, which are just as yummy and just as addictive as regular potato chips, but way healthier! You can also try kale chips!
Chocolate Banana Frozen Yogurt: For a healthy dessert, throw some sliced bananas in the freezer while you’re preparing your snacks earlier in the day. After being frozen for a few hours, blend with yogurt and some chocolate chips for a something delicious, sweet, and guilt-free!
