Gearing up for the Big Game? Planning the snacks for Superbowl Sunday?
Other than my fave-of-all-time vegetable chips from Trader Joe’s, I only have one recipe of my own to offer, and it’s this: Skinny and Sumptuous Spinach Dip.
It’s easy! It’s delish! (And there are a few other recipes here from around the web you might enjoy.)
Need help figuring it out? It’s not rocket science, believe me. Besides, when it comes to making dip? I go for quick, low-budget, and a modified version of all the others that require more time, more ingredients, and far too many steps for me to deal with!
Skinny and Sumptuous Spinach Dip
- Fresh (organic) spinach (5-oz. container)
- 4 tbsp. (organic) light sour cream
- 1 or 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 2 tbsp. shredded mozzarella
- Pepper and / or garlic pepper
- Lightly steam the spinach until barely wilted.
- Drain. Chop. Toss it in a bowl.
- Add the light sour cream (more or less, depending on your taste).
- Add the minced garlic. Add the shredded mozzarella (more or less, to your liking).
- Mix! Serve with chips! Eat with gusto!
Preparation time? Moi? 10 minutes (and I shredded the mozzarella myself). The cost? $3 to $4, depending on where you pick up your spinach, cheese, and light sour cream. The chips are $2.49 (and no, I have not been compensated by Trader Joe’s, I just love the chips). Serves two to four people (remember, as a snack).

Other healthy Superbowl snacks?
Fit Sugar has more goodies (both sweet and savory) than you can shake a (carrot) stick at! Their Mango Red Pepper Salsa? I may dance my way to the market to make that one right now! Their 120-calorie meatball? (I think I may marry it.)
Then there’s this mini veggie pizza on a whole wheat English muffin, discovered on Flickr, complete with its recipe. Looks fabulous, versatile, and easy. I would be adding tomatoes, red and green pepper, red onion, and no doubt – a touch of fresh garlic.
Miller Time? No. Confession Time
I’ll fess up. I don’t like (American) football. I rarely watch the Superbowl (though I’ve been known to watch the commercials). But I love any excuse for festivities. So round up the kids and the friends, switch to Netflix if you prefer that to Game Time, and snack on something healthy this weekend!
