Getting ready to cheer on your pick in the Big Game? Keep your spread lean and green with some of my favorite easy eats from our Health Starts Here® recipes opens in a new tab.
All Health Starts Here recipes are made without any extracted oils or refined sugar, and they’ll help you focus on getting plenty of nutrient-dense, unprocessed whole plant foods on your plate, to keep you fueled for the whole game. Everybody loves chili, especially on a wintry game day.
I love to make a huge batch with plenty of toppings so everyone can customize their own bowl with cilantro, onions, avocado, hot sauce, homemade Fresh Salsa opens in a new tab or my favorite, jalapeño cashew cream.
It’s simple to make: just soak some cashews for a few hours in water, then drain and add to a blender with some fresh seeded jalapeño, lime juice, a touch of smoked sea salt and enough water to make a smooth creamy puree. It’s amazingly rich and delicious.
Regardless of what colors you’re sporting, keep your spread colorful with a rainbow of nutrient-packed foods.
Fill up on beautiful cut fruits and veggies like radishes, bell peppers, carrots, celery, broccoli, romaine hearts and apple slices, or dip them in a crowd pleasing dip like Creamy Spinach Dip opens in a new tab, Green Garbanzo Guacamole opens in a new tab or Green Garbanzo Hummus opens in a new tab.
The addition of fiber-packed beans makes all three of these dips lean and green. Looking for more scrumptious color? Try the Sweet Potato Mash and Smoked Almonds opens in a new tab, Black Bean Hummus opens in a new tab or Texas Caviar opens in a new tab.
These easy to make dishes are a great addition to any game day spread and are sure to keep your game watchers going ‘til the final play.
