Sneak in the good stuff on Super Bowl Sunday with these 8 Sneaky Recipes
Football Sundays are a day for fans to indulge themselves in finger foods, sandwiches, and sweet treats.Typically these foods are not the healthiest, especially hot wings, pizza, dips, and good ole’ greasy burgers. These deliciously healthy alternatives will get you game day ready! Packed with added nutrients from hidden veggies but you’ll never know it. You surely won’t be sacrificing any taste here.
Be game day ready with these 8 Sneaky Recipes – shh…your friends and family will never know
Creamy Kale Guac – Guacamole is healthy in and of itself, but it’s also one of those calorie-dense foods that can go from a snack to a meal pretty quickly. The blend in this version extends the volume of the dish by 50 percent, while taking down the calories.
Curried Deviled Eggs – I use Chickpea-Zucchini Base Blend as a stand-in for the mayo in this recipe. It lends a creamy hummus-like texture that makes the eggs healthier and lighter— with half the calories of the standard sat-fat-laden version. If you’re not a curry fan, leave it out; they’ll taste just as yummy without it.
Mac and Cheese – The secret to this totally diet-friendly version of mac and cheese? The blend and cauliflower florets add volume—so you get to eat more—and I use super flavorful cheeses.
Crab and Artichoke Dip – This dip is so decadent you almost won’t believe it doesn’t have the cream cheese, sour cream, mayo, and tons of Parm traditional versions have.
Doctor’s Choice Chili – Chili is one of a Sneaky Chef’s best hiding places. As I tested this recipe, I was astonished at the amount of puree that could disappear into this firehouse favorite.
Brainy Brownies – It’s hard to believe that brownies can be healthy, but this recipe “ takes the cake.” My baker friend Karen worked for days with me on this one and cringed every time I wanted to add another sneaky (i.e. wholesome) ingredient, yet I knew it could be done.
Turkey Burgers – I’m usually not a fan of turkey burgers; they’re so bland and hockey-puck-like. The spices in my version punch up the flavor and the Black Bean–Blueberry–Baby Kale Base Blend adds moistness and a “beefiness” to the burgers.
Crunchy Kale Crust Pizza – I’m always on the lookout for a pizza crust that isn’t just a refined carb fest—and this is one of the best I’ve ever had. It’s incredibly good for you in and of itself, not just a delivery system for the sauce and cheese. What’s not to love?
