So with the Superbowl coming up, I know a lot of people are having parties including myself. What I am looking for are some healthy food choices that I can make that are low in calories so I won't go over my daily calorie intake. Any suggestions to recipes, links, etc are appreciated.

Thanks for your responses.

Tortilla chips and salsa
Chicken Fajitas
Baked buffalo wings
Vegetable or fruit tray
Sandwiches
Cheese and crackers

Personally, I'd rather just drink beer.

the nutrition info as well as ww points. Definitely worth checking out.

I second skinnytaste. They have some really good recipes that don't look or taste like "diet" or "healthy" food.

black bean dip! Made with mashed black beans, onion, chopped jalepeno, chopped garlic, and some cheese. Bake for 20 minutes. Can eat with chips, WW tortillas, crackers, even veggies. Good for you so long as you don't go crazy with the cheese! If anyone wants the exact reciipe contact me privately and I will post it.

Buffalo chicken wing dip (use celery as your dipper instead of chips)
homemade pizzas (use flatbread or tortillas for the crust)
7 layer mexican dip (using beans as your base and lots of veggies)

I made this recently and it's SO good!!!

Skinny Buffalo Chicken Dip

2 1/2 pounds of fresh chicken breasts
1/2 pkg. dry ranch seasoning
3/4 bottle Franks Red Hot sauce
pkg. 1/3 less fat cream cheese

Put chicken, ranch and 1/2 bottle Franks sauce in crock pot on for 4-5 hours. It will be done before this...Usually by 4 hours I go open it up, shred the chicken, pour another 1/4 bottle sauce and block of cream cheese. Mix all together. EAT!!

It make 18 servings- serving size is 1/3 cup. I actually used the actual measuring cup for serving so I'd know how many servings I had

Serving size has

118 calories

2 gr carbs

4 gr fat

26 gr protein

* Serve with celery sticks for the lowest cal/carb option.*
You can also use, rolls to make a sandwich, tortilla chips, crackers.

I love jalapeno poppers! It's one of my favorite football foods.

So, I've substituted regular bacon for turkey bacon. You can also substitute regular cream cheese for reduced fat cream cheese, however, I really prefer the taste of regular cream cheese to reduced fat cream cheese. I guess it's all about your preferences though!

My plan is to be really strict Monday through Friday and save up some calories. We are making hot wings to take to the party and I plan to eat several :)
