If you’ve ever been to a Super Bowl party, you know the food is half the draw. Classic Super Bowl snacks are heavy on the grease and calories, and not so heavy on the nutrients. Think: chicken wings, pizza, pigs in a blanket, and creamy Buffalo chicken dip. While delicious in the moment, they leave you feeling greasy and bloated by the time half time hits. To ensure your guests enjoy the food while also feeling their best, we’re rounded up 60 Super Bowl recipes under 300 calories. Whether your guests are looking for healthy alternatives, or vegetarian and vegan options, you’ll have them covered with these tasty yet healthy Super Bowl-friendly recipes!
5 Tips for Hosting an Awesome Super Bowl Party
1. Set The Scene
Decorate your living room so that it feels like your guests are walking into the football stadium (except much cozier!). Get creative with props, such as foam fingers, game day food picks and football themed cups. You can also consider decorating one half of the room with one team’s colours and the other half of the room with the other team’s colours and your guests can choose which side they want to sit on. This will create some fun, friendly competition!
2. Supply Eco-Friendly Disposable Dishes
The thought of having to do the dishes after a party can be overwhelming. Save yourself the cleanup with eco-friendly disposable plates, cutlery and cups. They offer a stylish alternative to typical disposable items and are better for the environment, so it’s a real win-win.
3. Make Room for Ample Seating
Make sure there’s lots of comfortable seating for your guests, as they’ll be in and out of their seats throughout the game. Set up throw pillows and floor cushions on the ground to create a comfy, game-viewing atmosphere and bring in chairs from other rooms if necessary. You don’t want people to feel like they have to stand while watching the game.
4. Make a Punch and BYOB
Ask your guests to bring their drink of choice to sip on throughout the game, and whip up a large batch of spiked punch to get everyone in the festive spirit. Set out a pitcher of the punch alongside empty glasses to make it easy for your guests to pour it themselves. Also consider filling a bucket with ice and beer because nothing’s better than a cold brew on game day.
5. Plan Out The Food
Great food is a key part of a successful Super Bowl party. While Super Bowl eats are typically fried and loaded with salt and calories, think up recipes that are delicious and healthy too. Being prepared ahead of time will ensure you can make healthy versions of your favourite snacks and appetizers instead of relying on store-bought variations. Some you’ll be able to whip up in as little as 10 minutes, and others you can prep before your guests arrive. Make sure your entire spread is easily accessible and don’t forget to set out small plates and napkins!
