As most of you know I’m a MAH-JOR college football fan. I’m a proud University of Oregon graduate and a former captain of the cheerleading squad – I love my DUCKS! You might also know that last Thursday I cried myself to sleep. Oregon got their first “L” against Stanford and lost any chance of a National Championship. I’m still licking my wounds… I nervously ate while watching the entire game! Lucky for me I took a healthy spin on all my favorite football foods…
Football season and unhealthy eats go hand in hand. So in an effort to be healthier while sitting around watching your favorite teams all day, these are some options I’ve created. Football season never looked so good!
* 1 can garbanzo beans
* 1 handful of spinach
* 1 clove of garlic
* lemon to taste
* 1/4 c. olive oil
* (Optional) salt & pepper to taste
Add all the ingredients in your food processor and blend until smooth – that’s it!
Create a fun way to serve up your dip!
Use a bell pepper!
Cut the top off of your pepper and core out the inside. Spoon the green hummas into the pepper and get ready to be ADDICTED! I know I was…
(0 grams of fat!)
* 0% greek yogurt
* 1 package Ranch salad dressing mix
By using Total 0% greek yogurt as your base you’re getting the same amount of calories per cup as you would per tbs with the ingredients it’s called for.
Not only is it 0 grams of fat, it’s 23 grams of protein per serving!
Garnish with some cucumber slices to suggest healthier dipping options.
Carve out the middle of a cabbage and use it as a dip bowl!
* 2-3 Tbs. olive oil
* 1 head of cauliflower
* 1 Tbs. nutritional yeast
* 3 Tbs. Tabasco buffalo sauce
Chop your cauliflower into florets. Place it in a bag and drizzle the oil on top. Shake it to evenly coat the cauliflower. Next, sprinkle the nutritional yeast in the bag and shake again.
Spread the cauliflower out into a pan and bake for 20 minutes (or until browned) on 375 degrees.
Let it cool down a bit and then add the cauliflower back into the bag. Add the buffalo sauce and shake it up.
Shake, shake, shake! And serve hot!
P.S. – Since I didn’t get to post on Monday – Happy Veteran’s Day! I just wanted to salute our veteran’s for all that they do…Thank you.
