Healthy Super Bowl Recipes
I’m not a football fan, so they only way you can get me to watch football is if there’s good food involved. If the food also happens to be healthy that’s a win-win.
Guiding Stars’ expert chef, Erin Dow, has created the following recipes for an awesome Super Bowl spread. The Guiding Stars nutrition guidance program is a simple, easy-to-understand tool for making good nutrition choices and is designed to make a positive and lasting impact on public health.

Zucchini Hummus: Small zucchinis are very moist, so if you’re using them, omit the water from the recipe until you see what the texture looks like as you process the ingredients: you want it to resemble a loose peanut butter. This recipe will keep up to five days in the refrigerator.
Tandoori Shrimp Skewers: Owing to the fragrant and spicy curry powders, striking yellow turmeric and earthy cardamom and allspice, Indian cuisine is a guaranteed winner if you’re into bold flavors.
Garlic Lime Black Bean Avocado Spread: Great enjoyed as a dip with veggie strips and baked chips. Add as many extra veggies as you wish: good candidates include jalapenos, blanched and cooled corn, and whole cooked black beans.
Chippy Chili: Just 10 minutes to prep and ready within an hour, this family friendly dish will quickly become one of your “go-to” meals during a busy week.
Asian Lettuce Wraps: Designed to be packed with flavor and quick to make. Ditch your routine sandwich for something with a little more pizzazz for a packed lunch that you can look forward to.
