Truth – When it comes to the Super Bowl, do you get more excited about the game or the Super Bowl Snacks? The problem is, most can be calorie-bombs. Rather than use Super Bowl Sunday as an excuse to ditch your New Year’s resolution to eat healthier, offer to bring some healthier Super Bowl snacks.
And if you’re favorite Super Bowl Snack happens to be Buffalo-sauce flavored, no worries! Here are 3 healthier options for those traditional fried Buffalo chicken wings.
Roasted Buffalo Shrimp
I love this Roasted Buffalo Shrimp from Martha Stewart. It’s a delicious substitute for Buffalo chicken wings, which can pack about 200 calories and 12 grams of fat in a measly 3-piece serving. Shrimp, on the other hand, is a super low calorie and low-fat protein, so you can get full on almost 20 of these shrimp for the same calorie cost. The only fat in them comes from heart-healthy olive oil.
Substitute nonfat Greek yogurt for the sour cream, to save even more calories, and sprinkle in a few crumbles of bleu cheese.
Spicy Buffalo Cauliflower Bites
Even the meat-eaters will love these vegetarian Oven Baked Buffalo Cauliflower Bites from Spend with Pennies.
Roasted in the oven, not fried, but still crispy, and finger-licking delicious, you might even convert the non-cauliflower lovers in the crowd!
Skinny Buffalo Chicken Dip
How could you go wrong with a lightened up buffalo chicken dip that’s served with lots of veggies for dipping? This recipe for Skinny Buffalo Chicken Dip comes from The Skinnish Dish, and it looks SO good.
I might just make a bowl of this and eat it for lunch. Who needs a Super Bowl anyway?
