round up.001

This post is a sham. I am not a “sporty” girl. I don’t watch sports or frankly know much about them. Karen loves to tell the story of high school football games. She was a cheerleader, my boyfriend Bo-Bo was a football player and I was at every game, in the stands wrapped in 5 blankets looking miserable. I tried to be supportive, but god, sports are just not my thing. Food, however, Oh food I know!

A sporting event where food is central. I am in. Here is my round up of the best superbowl party foods. Healthy? Yes. Delicious? Why would you ask me such a question! Of course. And also.. just decadent enough to work.

Alright sporty people, put on your jersey (or whatever you wear to a sporting event) and dig in to some of these goodies!

Best Ever Vegetarian Chili – Don’t scoff at this recipe because it’s vegetarian. This chili is so darn good no one will miss the meat.

Hot Artichoke Dip – This is only healthy enough. Plus the artichokes help your body metabolize alcohol. So there is that.

Zucchini Fries with Avocado Dip – No explanation necessary here. Just make these. If you don’t have almond flour around and have no need to be gluten free use some panko bread crumbs.

Dips – Dips- Dips – These are 2 of my favorites. Romesco sauce, which is super easy to make and so yummy with grilled veggies or grilled shrimp. And basil parmesan dip – you can literally dip anything in here but artichokes happen to be my favorite accompaniment. Want more dip ideas? Check out this article I wrote last year to throw a superbowl dip party: french onion dip, edamame guacamole, white bean roasted red pepper dip, and dessert hummus!


Basil Parmesan Dip


Crunchy Chickpea Snack – Ditch the chips and pretzels and other unhealthy “fillers” Make these instead. Just do it (that’s a sporty thing to say, right?)

And for a little extra football fun… Karen and I went tailgating at a Packers game last year. Have you seen this yet?

    Koscielny Wants Arsenal to Sign Classy Players to Turn Them into Title Contenders

    Arsenal center-back Laurent Koscielny is of the belief that the Gunners need to bring in a minimum of four quality players if they want to win titles next season.

    “We’ll need a goalkeeper, a right back, a midfielder and a striker,” said Koscielny who helped Arsenal to win the FA Cup last term, as quoted by Agen Bola indo11.com.

    “It’s important to have a minimum of these four players so that we’ll be better able to challenge over the course of a whole season against teams like Manchester City, Chelsea or (Manchester) United.”

    “Winning the FA Cup can change things and lead to other players coming.”

    The France defender continued: “Yes, we need to recruit a very, very good striker, because it’s important for us, for competition for places, because Olivier needs that to become even better.”

    “Having a striker who scores more than 30 goals a season can help us win the Premier League. Compared to the squads like Manchester City, even United, Chelsea. … You can see there’s a certain difference.”
