The Superbowl is this weekend and whether you’re a fan of the game or just gathering with friends, you know there will be snacking. You’ve worked hard to create healthy habits and now is not the time to give up on them. So we’re here to help set you up for success with these healthier recipes so you can sit back and enjoy the game and the camaraderie, all while fueling your body.

Healthy Super Bowl Appetizers

Everyone loves hummus, but sometimes you need to change things up. Megan, from Megan Unprocessed, has created this Mexican-style hummus that you can use as a dip with a vegetables or, as Megan recommends, spread it on lettuce leafs and top with quinoa, salsa, and guacamole.

You can make this recipe with cannellini beans or garbanzo beans. It’s a great snack because it keeps your sugar levels from spiking and fills you up with protein, fiber, and will boost energy levels needed to watch a long game.
