By Diana Jan 24 2013

Planning a Superbowl party? Here in Baltimore, it will be a big celebration. Try some of these healthier (and some Ravens themed!) foods at your party this year. Go Ravens! shutterstock_65685271

  • Try Lightened Up Spinach Artichoke Dip with whole wheat pita or cut up veggies. For a Baltimore twist, add 1-2 tsp Old Bay seasoning.
  • Try this Purple Fruit Dip:

    Ravens Purple Fruit Dip

    • 1 cup low-fat Greek yogurt
    • 3 TBSP fresh lime juice
    • Grated zest from one lime
    • 3 TBSP sugar
    • 1/4 cup thawed frozen blueberries

    Mix together all ingredients and serve as a dip for fresh fruit.

     

  • Serve mini fish tacos with purple cabbage instead of more fat and calorie laden options such as wings or pigs in a blanket.
  • Serve nuts, such as almonds, walnuts and pistachios roasted with Old Bay instead of party mix.
  • When served with tomato salsa, purple corn chips are a much healthier option than when served with queso dip.
  • Instead of ordering delivery, try making pizzas on whole wheat flatbread and topping with roasted veggies. Purple eggplant works well!

Enjoy these healthy Super Bowl recipes!
