Super Healthy Super Bowl Sunday?!
January 26, 2015
Don’t let the heavy appetizers blow your New Year’s Healthy eating goals. Drink plenty of water before game time festivities and try these easy lighter sides.
Instead of Pulled pork, try pulled chicken barbeque sliders.
Make a fun veggie tray of squash, sugar snap peas, and colorful peppers.
Try our personal favorite, loaded sweet potato skins:
4 Medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed and patted dry
1 tbs olive oil
Coarse salt and ground pepper
¼ cup low-fat buttermilk
¼ tsp sweet paprika
4 slices turkey bacon
¼ cup reduced sour cream
2 scallions for garnish
Preheat oven to 450, rub sweet potatoes with oil; season with salt and pepper, bake until tender 40-45
Minutes. Let cool. Halve sweet potatoes long ways, scoop out 1/3 flesh from each half and put in a medium bowl. Add buttermilk and paprika, mash until smooth. Stuff sweet potato skins with filling (you may refrigerate for 2 days). Arrange on a baking sheet, bake until lightly browned. Meanwhile in skillet cook turkey bacon until crisp. Stir together sour cream and two tbs water. Garnish with bacon, paprika and scallions.
