As the majority of you know, Superbowl Sunday is coming up in just a couple of days. If you ask me if I care about who wins the game I would say I certainly don’t. Although, I was listening to Sports Radio yesterday (#whoami?) and decided I’m going to cheer for the Seahawks just because I went to Seattle this year. Looks like I’ll be wearing blue on Sunday! Maybe I do care who wins. I really don’t.
I don’t get too excited for the game. I get excited for the commercials, the half-time show, puppy Superbowl, and the food.
Lots of planning goes into Super bowl munchies, and this year is no exception. I am teaming up with Cub Foods Grocery Store and their store brand Essential Everyday, to put together some seriously delicious grub that will fill our tummies, but that won’t break the bank. I am lucky enough to have a Cub Foods just down the street from me, and that is where I will be doing the majority of my Superbowl shopping this year!
I’m throwing the whole “dietitian” title to the wayside for the day and treating myself to a fun array of dishes. (The dietitian speaks): Although I do encourage you all to watch your portions and make healthy adjustments if they won’t ruin the taste or texture of the dish! I just can’t brush it off completely can I?
Cub Foods has offered some delicious ideas for game day. These are three that I am contemplating. I haven’t decided if I’m making all three or just one or two. I also am planning to switch them up just a little bit and add my Melanie touches to them.

Chili Cheese Fries: If I make these fries, I will omit the processed cheese and use natural cheese instead, and possibly make my own baked fries.
Awesome Guacamole: gahhh I love guac!
Chipotle Sliders: hubs is real excited about this one!
Thank you Cub and Essential Everyday for these party ideas! More to come on the Cub Foods and Essential Everyday next week.
Other Game Day Ideas (click on recipe title to view recipe details):
Southwestern Egg Rolls with Avocado Ranch Dipping Sauce (you could skip the dipping sauce if you’d like–they’re good enough on their own!)
Cowboy Caviar: serve with bell peppers or corn tortilla chips
Buffalo Cauliflower Bites from Skinny Taste:
I’ve made this before and it was a crowd pleaser! I cut down the cheese a bit though. I love cheese but the amount it called for was getting ridiculous.
Clean Freedom Brownies from The Gracious Pantry:
It looks like I have some decisions to make because goodness knows I am not making all of these recipes for Sunday!
I’ll be recapping my game day eats with you next week and I’ll have yet another giveaway coming your way so keep an eye out for it!
What are your plans for Superbowl if any?
