Super bowl is around the corner and you may be saving up your calories binges for that one day of PARTYING! But don’t sabotage your diet for a super plate of calories when you can serve up some healthy snack and meal ideas. Even if you’re not the hostess, you can bring a dish you know you’ll love without those high calorie bombs.

Here are two of my favorites!

No Guilt Seven Layer Dip

 Here’s a healthier version of the dipping favorite that fills you up and keeps the guild away.

  1. Take 1 pound plum tomatoes (fresh) diced, 1 green onion finely chopped, 1 teaspoon minced garlic, ½ jalapeno seeded and chopped, one teaspoon lime juice and a pinch of salt.
  2. Next take one small onion diced and sauté in 1 teaspoon oil until soft. Sprinkle with chili powder, salt and pepper and add one 15 oz can of rinsed pinto beans.
  3. Mash the beans and onions until smooth.
  4. Next mash an avocado, 2 tablespoons cilantro chopped and ½ lime juice with a sprinkle of salt.
  5. Now layer bean mash, followed by tomato mix, avocado and then a layer of fresh corn off the cob (canned if you must).
  6. Top if off with cheddar cheese and use colored peppers, cucumbers and yes tortilla chips to dip.

Turkey Chili

 This easy-to-follow Turkey Chili recipe is a great hit, high in flavor, fiber and yes, low in calories.

  1. In a large skillet brown, two pounds ground turkey sautéed with 2 teaspoons chili powder and 2 teaspoons cumin.
  2. Add to skillet one 15-ounce can rinsed kidney beans, one 6-ounce can diced tomatoes, and one half of an 18-ounce tube of polenta.
  3. Mix together until heated through and serve with 1 teaspoon of shredded cheddar cheese.

Remember that you can fill up on proteins to help curb your snacking seizures and low calorie options like air-popped popcorn. Veggies and low calorie beverages can keep you on track with no penalties.
