21 Day Fix: Super Bowl Snacks - From Forks to Fitness

RECIPE INDEX:

  • Whip up a variety of Cold Veggie Pizzas for your guests.  Cut them into bite-size pieces and place them on flattened cupcake wrappers for easy grab-and-go snacks to get the party started.
  • What more is there to say?  Make Peanut Butter Cookies.  Be the host/hostess with the mostest.  Smile because everyone is happy.  Send me a thank you card.
  • Make a large bowl of Honey & Cinnamon Chickpeas to provide a sweet crunch to your party!
  • Grain-free Pumpkin Bars that eat like brownies.  Perhaps set these aside, so you can have them all to yourself.
  • Bacon and cheddar and yum, oh my!  Bacon Cheddar Poppers are a crowd-pleaser (these are on hubby’s personal favorite list!).
  • Throw out a platter of Turkey Pinwheels and step away before they nip your fingers in the stampede.
  • Traditional hummus is packed with oil.  This version is lighter and leaves room in your tummy for other healthy fats (such as peanut butter cookies!).
  • Make this Baked Cheesy Buffalo Dip as spicy or as mild as you like.  Running low on time?  It’s great simply mixed and served cold as well.  Don’t forget to provide LOTS of chips and veggies for dipping! 

Enjoy the game!

  3. After 30 minutes, when it's starting to thicken and set, chop remaining berries.

  1. 1 purple, 1 red, sprinkle of blue
Great Tip
  1. I don't like my frozen yogurt super sweet, so taste it before you freeze it. If you find it too bitter, just add more honey or even stevia. You could also sprinkle it with raw sugar before serving, if you're a fan of sprinkles. 😉

Thanksgiving Craft: Fruit Kabob Turkey!

This is a great idea for the kiddos on Thanksgiving afternoon.  Cover the table with kraft paper, bowls of fruit, sliced veggies and skewers. Let them go to town on decorating their own turkey. Use their finished creation as a centerpiece for the dinner table. They’ll be so proud to see you display their masterpiece!
 
Make sure to snap a photo of them with their finished turkey, too. It will be fun to do this each year as a Thanksgiving tradition.

21 Day Fix: Hummus (that’s not a blue container!)

What did you just say?  Yes, that’s right.  This bad boy won’t consume your 21 Day Fix [precious] blue container.

And before you start yelling at me, here’s why… traditional hummus is made with oil & tahini.  It’s not necessary, but that’s the authentic way to make it.  I simply replace the oil with broth and, voila, you’ve got oil-free hummus. 🙂

Garlic and Lemon Hummus
It's simple. It's spectacular. It's hummus!
