Healthy Super Bowl Fare for the Big Game!

It's almost Game day! I'll be going to a friend's house where there will be a wide variety of appetizers. I'm sure there will be lots of the typical Super Bowl fare.....wings, nachos, fattening dips etc. If you implement the 80/20 rule, you might use this as a time to indulge a little, but I always prefer to eat healthy because my body appreciates that so much more. Below are some great options to bring to a party or to serve to your own guests. Remember, even though they are healthier, you still need to watch your portions and enjoy them in moderation. Got it? Alright then, here are some options you may want to take to your game day soiree. Enjoy!!!

Zucchini Fritters with Garlic Herb and Yogurt Sauce

This dish is perfect to take on a picnic or to a potluck! All I can say about this dish is yum, yum. It is one of my all-time favorites! 

Fritter Ingredients:

  • 1 large zucchini (or 2 small ones)
  • cloves garlic peeled and minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil 
  • 1/4 cup fresh oregano, minced
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
  • 2 organic eggs or Flax Egg
  • 1/4 cup Bob's Red Mill gluten-free flour
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • to taste salt
  • to taste pepper

Dip Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan 
  • 3/4  cup greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup scallions
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Using the large holes of a box grater, grate zucchini. Place zucchini in a colander set in the sink and toss with 1/2 teaspoons salt. Let stand 10 minutes, and then wring zucchini dry in a clean kitchen towel to remove moisture. Place zucchini in a large bowl and gently mix in egg, garlic, basil, oregano, lemon zest, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well to combine. Slowly add flour, stirring so no lumps form.

  2. Heat 2 tablespoons coconut oil or olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat until the oil sizzles when you drop a small amount of zucchini mixture into the pan. Carefully drop about 2 tablespoons zucchini mixture into pan; repeat, spacing fritters a few inches apart.

     

      3. Cook fritters until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Lower heat to        medium. Turn fritters, and continue cooking until golden, 2 to 3 minutes more. Transfer fritters to a plate; set aside in a warm place. Cook remaining zucchini mixture, adding more oil to the pan if necessary.

Serve with yogurt sauce

    • FASTEST AND EASY WAY TO RECOVER YOUR CRYPTO 2024

      I’m one of those few people who invested in the cryptocurrency market and was hoping to make enough profits after my retirement. Unfortunately, I had invested in a platform that was out to steal from me, I lost around $275,000 to this platform excluding the promised profits. I had lost every penny I invested into it including the money I had to borrow from friends. I thought it was all over until I came across a Cryptocurrency recovery expert, ETHICSREFINANCE SERVICE, who helped me recover my money from these fake investors. It took ETHICSREFINANCE 48 hours to recover my money and I was able to track down these people. I’m truly grateful for their service and I highly recommend them to anyone with the same problem.

    • Legitimate Cryptocurrency Recovery Company 2023// Lost Recovery Masters

      Hello, my name is Jean Delon .
      I’m 37 years old from the United Kingdom.
      My family and I were left with nothing after falling prey to a cryptocurrency investment fraud that took $807,000 in USDT and Bitcoins from us. We were quite fortunate to stumble across a post about LOST RECOVER MASTERS, a cryptocurrency and funds recovery organization with extensive cybersecurity knowledge. Recovery Masters were able to recover all of our cash, and they were tracked down and reported to the right authorities using the information we gave. In my opinion, you should use Lost Recovery Masters to recover your cryptocurrency.
