The Super Bowl is coming up, and that means…. snacks!!! It can be difficult to eat healthy, when people around you are chowing down on cheese curls and potato chips.
I generally don’t like to deprive myself of things I want to eat. Everything in moderation I say (well except what you actually can’t eat).
It’s not hard to “clean” up the snacks you want to have. You can still enjoy the group activity, hell, you can clean up all the snacks an the group would be none the wiser.
I’m in two minds, on one hand, “I don’t know why people think healthy food, is boring, and bland” on the other, I’m all “ok I totally get why people think healthy food is yucky”. LOL.
I’ve tried some pre packaged “health” foods that have been awful. I’ve had gluten free cake, that’s been a hot chalky mess. I find that at times people overcompensate with sugar. So I get it, but I cook, you can cook, (really you can), and the food is good.
Falafels are yummy, and healthy, they can be baked instead of fried. They don’t have to be huge, but you can make wraps, or you could just make them into bite sized bits and serve them with dips. Recipes are easy to find online, and you can always modify to fit your taste. I’ve made them with kale… anything is possible.
You can make a mock cheesesteak sandwich by sautéing mushrooms and onions, think about it, cheese and mushrooms on pizza work, so it's not an odd combination. There's always buffalo cauliflower, cheese balls, blended with all kinds of spices and herbs, roasted chick peas, and "kettle corn", (that's popcorn on a stove to us non microwaving people) take on flavours really well, and you can make your own "chex" mix, that will help limit the amount of sodium you consume. There's nothing wrong with snacking, but there's hidden crap in most processed foods, and you can easily make similar usually better tasting things yourself.
PS: don't forget to check us out on social media.
I sense a theme here. lol
Don't get frustrated, get snacking.
