smarten up your super bowl with these 5 healthier snacks

let’s just be honest: super bowl is synonymous with snacks at this point. and they’re not necessarily always the smartest snacks either. but that’s not how it has to be! we took the liberty of rounding up a few of our favorite healthy snacks from blogs past for your super bowl satiation. here are five of our faves:


[seasoned sweet potato oven fries]
serves 4 - 6
a more nutritious stand-in for your average french fry, these puppies are baked rather than fried. but with an uber flavorful seasoning blend coating each wedge, you won’t even miss all that oil.

4 sweet potatoes, peeled + cut into thin wedges
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp smoked paprika
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  1. preheat the oven to 425 degrees + line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. put your potatoes in a large bowl + sprinkle the cornstarch over the top. toss it all together so the cornstarch is coating all the potato wedges.
  3. mix together the chili powder, nutritional yeast, sea salt, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin + smoked paprika, then sprinkle it over the potato wedges, tossing to disperse evenly.
  4. drizzle the olive oil over the potatoes + give it another good toss to coat everything evenly,  then arrange the potato wedges in a single layer on each of the two baking sheets.
  5. bake for 25-30 minutes, tossing halfway through, until edges are crisp + golden.


[protein-packed avocado dip]
serves 1
this avocado dip is simple enough to throw together last-minute, but also packin’ some protein you don’t find in your standard guac. everyone will fight over who gets to hold this dip.

½ avocado, mashed
1 scoop collagen protein powder
¼ tsp garlic powder
pinch of sea salt
pinch of crushed red pepper
1 tbsp chopped cilantro

mix everything together + stuff yo face.


[goat cheese stuffed mini bell peppers]
serves 4
these lil pepper poppers could not be easier to whip up, but we guarantee they’ll be the first thing to go at your superbowl soiree!

8 oz mini bell peppers, halved lengthwise
4 oz plain goat cheese
sea salt + black pepper to taste
fresh basil for garnish

  1. set your oven to broil.
  2. stuff each pepper half with a little goat cheese + sprinkle with a pinch of sea salt + black pepper.
  3. broil about 5-7 minutes, until the cheese is getting golden + bubbly.
  4. garnish with chopped fresh basil + watch ‘em disappear within seconds!

[nacho kale chips]
ok, so kale is not exactly the first thing that springs to mind when you think superbowl, but with this guilt-free nacho seasoning, you’ll wonder why you didn’t ditch that bag of neon orange doritos a loooong time ago. your digestive tract will thank you later.

1 small bunch lacinato kale, rinsed, ribbed + torn into chip-sized pieces
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp nutritional yeast powder
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp chili powder
½ tsp sea salt

  1. preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. in a large bowl, toss kale + olive oil, making sure everything is coated.
  3. combine all the seasonings in a small bowl + sprinkle over the kale, tossing everything to coat evenly.
  4. spread kale evenly in a single layer on two baking sheets lined with parchment paper.
  5. bake for 12 minutes, turn the pans, then bake another 10-12 minutes, depending on your oven. you want everything to be slightly crisp, but not burned.
  6. remove from the oven and let cool for a couple minutes.


[peanut butter coconut balls]
makes 12 balls
everyone needs a little somethin’ sweet for that gametime finale, and these little balls of bliss fit the bill perfectly! no one will believe they’re not loaded with contraband.

½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut

Hi! Yes, you can absolutely use vanilla extract in place of the vanilla bean powder! :)

Any substitute for vanilla bean powder – will vanilla extract work?
