Super Bowl Menu of Healthy Recipes!

Super Bowl Sunday is this weekend! And while I readily admit that I may not be the most die-hard football fan, I still love the excitement, the commercials, the half-time show (anyone excited for Katy Perry?!), and most of all, the food! I feel like food is the glue of any sporting event – you might be divided over the teams, but everything can be reconciled with some tasty game-time classics: finger foods, dips, desserts, and snacks! It might seem tough to enjoy the day without tipping the scale, so I’ve compiled a list of recipes that I’ve already posted that would be perfect to serve and eat without feeling too guilty! The best part is that most of these are healthy takes on classic dishes, like Buffalo wings and brownies, so you won’t have to change the menu too much!
