My husband and I have thrown annual Super Bowl parties. We have enjoyed having friends over, watching the game and eating game day food. However, I admit, I’ve been guilty of serving not-so-healthy food at our parties.
Years ago, I wasn’t too concerned with eating healthy. Fast forward to today. I have learned to eat healthy due to health problems I have encountered through the years. I attribute healthy eating to one of the things that has kept me going.
Why not try making dishes this year with real, whole foods so you don’t expose your guests to added toxins like chemicals, preservatives and food coloring?
Go ahead – ditch the Doritos, cheez whiz and frozen pizza bites. Eating healthy food CAN be yummier than eating that junk food. Plus, it’s soooo much better for you.
Here are some healthy Super Bowl recipes to try at your Super Bowl party this year.

Need a Main Dish Idea? Super Bowl Meatballs
If you’re looking for a main dish idea that is still considered snack-like, try this recipe. It is a combination of a couple of different meatball recipes that I have found over time. It is gluten-free and seems to go over well. You can either half the recipe and get around 30 meatballs out of it, or make the entire amount.
Super Bowl Meatballs
- 2 pounds of grassfed ground beef
- 1 cup gluten-free bread crumbs (I use crushed gluten-free, GMO free, corn flakes, or gluten-free crackers) -Or- I’ve heard 1/4 – 1/2 cup coconut flour works too
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 4 tsp garlic powder
- 2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp pepper
I’ve also added the following , but it depends on your preference:
- 3/4 cup parmesan cheese
- 3/4 cup parsley
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease 2 rimmed jelly roll pans (I’ve used 2 pie dishes instead).
- Combine all ingredients and mix well (adding just enough of the crumbs or flour to make the meatballs stick together). Shape the mixture into walnut-sized meatballs (I use a one-ounce scoop to make it go quicker).
- Place the meatballs in the greased pans. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until no longer pink in the center.
- Serve with a dipping sauce.
