Noturaverage Healthy Super Bowl Snacks

It is that time of the year again my friends! Super Bowl is upon us. If you have been reading my blog or following my Instagram for awhile, you know that we are HUGE football fans. In the past, chips and dip and some more unhealthy options have always been our go to. This year, that is changing. I know you are all aware of our cleaner eating goals so even on event days and holidays, we are trying to stick to it (we did decide to “cheat” on vacation).

I am going to share 2 of our game day recipes with you today. In the weeks leading up to Super Bowl, I will post more so you have multiple options and ideas for you and your guests/family.

The first one is a zesty bacon chip dipped in avocado! This one is my FAVORITE! This is a snack I could eat any day, literally. AS good as regular bacon chips are, I loved adding a little but of extra flavor to these. It offers and interesting twist without being too spicy or hot for the little ones. AND they are super easy.

For this one, I used Smithfield® Bacon and organic avocados. Start off by preheating your oven to 375 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (I have used non stick foil as well). While your oven preheats, cut the bacon slices into 3 even smaller piece. In a bowl, mix together 1/3 C of lime juice, 1 Tablespoon of siracha and 2 Tablespoons of brown sugar and mix well. Lay your bacon pieces on your cookie sheet and coat with your mixture. Cook the bacon approximately 15-20 minutes. 

While the bacon cooks, get out a second dipping bowl. Cut, peel and deseed 2 large and ripe avocados and put in the bowl. Add 2 Tablespoons of lime juice (this helps with browning and give a good flavor), a pinch of salt and a pinch of pepper. Mush and mix your dip. 



Your next snack is also made with Smithfield® meats. I used various lunch meats for this. I opted to use this brand because the meat has amazing flavor and doesn’t fall apart. I laid out the slices and got out a block of almond cheese. I cute the cheese into string cheese sized pieces. We try to eat dairy free, if we didn’t I would use precut string cheese. 

Now, just wrap your meat around the cheese pieces. It is as easy as that. If I was more motivated, I would have made a home made dip for these, but I didn’t. I found a Vegan honey mustard in the salad section of my local grocery story. This was the perfect sweet. I even cross dipped some of the bacon chips in it!

If you make this be sure to tag me and let me know what you think!

Most importantly, I am a mother of 5. I don't have your typical happily ever after family. I am divorced (one of those nasty messy ones), I have way too many bills (don't we all) and I really don't have any interesting hobbies (wasn't always that way, I grew up riding horses) I am in a relationship with the love of my life and my happily ever after. He is the most amazing and loving person I have ever met. Payton deals with my crazy life and family and embraces is with so much love and support. He is the BEST dad and father figure I know). He is an Engineer for our local fire department and that is HARD. I honestly am so proud of him and so proud of what he does BUT I HATE his job, I hate nights away and I hate the time it takes from our family. People don't realize how difficult it is. At the end of the day, I am so thankful for him and our life together, I can't wait to spend forever with him. My kids....they are terrorists. Seriously. I grew up as an only girl out of 4 total kids. I always wanted 4 kids - 2 girls and 2 boys. Well, the big man upstairs had other plans! I am bless with one daughter and four sons. My daughter is the oldest. Makenzee Adele is 11, going on 18. She is smart and hardworking and LOVES school. Caleb is next. He is 9 and so loving. He works really hard in school and loves baseball. Next is Connor. He is 7 and very advanced in school. He hates doing any school work and has the silliest personality and can light up a room. Connor plans to play professional football for the Arizona Cardinals when he grows up. Moving forward is Keegan. I had the worst pregnancy with him. I had Hyperemisis Gravidum and was on home IV and Zofran for the majority of the pregnancy. He was born healthy and is 4 and a wonderful boy who causes more trouble than necessary (he was recently diagnosed with Autism and ADHD). Lastly is Rhett. He is the baby and loves getting treated like he is. He was born April 5 (I am seriously not changing the months constantly) and LOVES cuddles possibly more than his dad. So that is a bit about me and my family! Subscribe to my blog to read more about my WILD ride!!
