Had a great (and timely) question from a private client this week:
“What are good foods to eat for the BIG game?”
(instead of traditional snacks like chips, salsa, cheese and crackers, etc.)
Here are some last-minute, healthy substitutions for 3 common Big Game snacks:
1. Chips and Dip
Instead of traditional chips, grab a bag of Siete Chips (which are made from cassava and coconut flour instead of white or wheat) and then mash up some homemade guacamole or pick up some pre-made Wholly Guacamole®.
2. Cheese, meat and crackers
Ditch regular Ritz or saltines for some Simple Mills Almond Crackers (as the name implies it is made of almonds, flaxseeds and cassava). If you want to really go the extra quarter mile, pick Switzerland or French/Italian cheese. Oh, and instead of salami or pepperoni use tuna on your crackers. Okay… if you really can’t stand a fishy-smelling living room, use some Kielbasa (a type of polish sausage) instead.
3. Taco Salad
For the meat, grab some ground turkey or Quorn (meatless grounds) and cook them on the frying pan with olive oil and a little Lawry’s®. Then take your Siete Chips and add your normal taco salad ingredients. If you want to supercharge this recipe even more instead of lettuce throw in some spring mix for greater antioxidants and polyphenols.
May the best snack win,
