I am really getting into the football spirit, guys. Yes, I love my Ravens and also root for my husband’s team – the Carolina Panthers – and I can even get into Seahawks games now that my sister lives there.
(I need to have a reason to get into the game, so I always pick a team to root for. So hey, the more teams that I like, the better, I say, but the Ravens will always be my boys.)
BUT, to be honest, the real reason I am excited for football is everything else about football Sundays aside from the actual game. Family and friends spend a lot of time together and I always cook really good food (usually with a beer in hand) while my husband and son hang out together, working around the house until the games on 🙂 it sounds perfect!
Did I mention the fall weather is almost always absolutely perfect too? Bring on the hoodies.
So, in honor of the last non-football Sunday before the season starts, here is my round-up of some awesome healthy recipes for football Sunday. I will definitely be trying some (if not all) of these out this fall!
P.S– I did a blog post on my entire 2015 Super Bowl menu and definitely still recommend those recipes- especially the Buffalo Chicken dip and Chili!
But this post is about trying something new, so I’ll stop rambling now and leave you to these mouthwatering pics…
2. This Spicy Black Bean Hummus that I think my husband will be obsessed with.
3. I want to try Katherine Martinelli’s Baked Zucchini Fries. I think kids would love these! I know mine would.
4. Black Blean Spinach Quesadillas – because Mexican food is always party food in my book.
5. Turkey Sliders are always a good choice for football games 🙂 Or always.
7. Spinach & Goat Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms are a must try for me because I have a secret obsession with stuffed mushrooms. And finger food is a plus!
8. Spicy Roasted Garbanzo Beans – because, if not, you know you will devour that bag of Doritos someone brought to the party.
9. These cute little Cauliflower Pizza Bites from Dashing Dish. Easy to grab during the game and, honestly, I can’t stop with the cauliflower as a replacement for carbs.
10. And finally, because stuffed peppers always seem to be a crowd pleaser, I think these healthier Quinoa Stuffed Peppers look like a good idea.
What else should I try this fall? Oh, and be sure to check out my last Super Bowl post that I mentioned above!
