The Super Bowl is almost here! Who are you rooting for? Since the Patriots didn’t make it I need to choose a surrogate team for the big game. I think I’m going to go with the Broncos simply because Manning is 39, and is still kicking butt. I think that’s pretty impressive, don’t you? It makes me feel young to know that there are still professional athletes that are older than me! Haha.
You know what helps keep you looking youthful and feeling youthful inside and out? A healthy diet! I used to use special occasions and holidays as excuses to go wild and eat what ever the heck I wanted. Sometimes I would eat super light all day just so I could indulge at the Super Bowl party, birthday celebration, or holiday feast. I know some of you out there can relate to that story, am I right?! Now that I have discovered a healthy recipe alternative for all my “dirty” favorite foods I can “have my paleo cake, and eat it too!” There is no missing out on any of my game-day favorites, and I feel great post-game because these recipes are clean, grain-free, and good for you.
For the Super Bowl parties, we usually have a large spread of savory junk foods like nachos, wings, and chips & dip. Here is some of my favorite grain-free and/or paleo recipes that will MAKE your Super Bowl! You’ll be able to indulge and feel good about what you’re putting in your body- now that’s a true WIN!
