So Game Day is finally here. With the mother of all football games comes food, some of which may lead to regret and heartburn the next day. When the kickoff whistle sounds, it’d be easy just to eat nachos and football shaped cookies, so here are some honest to goodness healthy ways to get your grub on, with no salad in sight.
I don’t have any actual research to support this, but the crockpot seems like it was a invented by a lazy man. Drop a bunch of stuff into a heated bowl and then it does all the work for you. Sounds good to me. The Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Dip puts a protein spin on a Gameday classic. Plus you can prep the whole thing in a blender then dump what you need into a crockpot. Ready in 3 hours on high.
The only thing better than prep in a blender? Meat on a stick of course! This recipe for Balsamic Steak Skewers is not only handy and easy but it leaves one hand free for hand waving and celebratory high fives. You need some steak, cherry tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, and most importantly of all, fire.
The last stop on our food pyramid of awesome is an old game day favorite with a non-fried twist. Baked Chicken Wings. This simple baked recipe has a super short ingredients list, (wings, chili pepper, pepper, and garlic) and the baking process actually locks in the juices far better than traditional frying.
So now that your stomach is ready for Game Day, be sure to have a happy and safe time with family and friends.
