NTTC’s Guide to a Healthy Super Bowl Spread

We are now less than a week away from the Super Bowl now. And, YOU need to start thinking about your menu…

Truth be told, Super Bowl parties can be dangerous if you don’t have a plan.

For some reason, everyone gets busy cooking all of the full fat, rich, decadent man food they can find… buffalo everything, topped with a little more buffalo and extra cheese, served on a chip.

And… I love ALL THAT FOOD, but I also know that this type of food doesn’t serve me well.  I feel gross the next day, and the scale fights back.  It’s just not worth it.

So, in typical NTTC style, I’ve got some healthier alternatives to recommend for you for this fabulous football Sunday.

DISCLAIMER:  I’m not much of a football fan, but when the home team hits the Super Bowl and is led by a kid from Tennessee… you know I’m all over it!

Roasted Red Pepper Veggie Dip | No Thanks to Cake

Buffalo Chicken Egg Rolls | No Thanks to Cake

Hoisin Lime Pork Lettuce Wraps | No Thanks to Cake

Fresh Cucumber Salsa | No Thanks to Cake

And, if you know me… I’m always trying a new dish.  It’s rare for me to make the same thing twice.  So, I thought I’d give you a peek at what I have my eyes on for this Super Bowl.  I found this dish on Google Images, and plan to use my guacamole recipe (the best ever that I got from my friend Marissa) and serve it up like this!  I’ll share all the details once it’s made!

  1. I love the egg rolls….I feel like I need to edit my blog post and include these! :) This year I think it may be a party of 2 for the superbowl (just me and my husband), and these look perfect!

    The roasted red pepper dip is to die for. I will have it on this Super Bowl Sunday and probably many more Super Bowls as well.
