Over half of women in the US are now partaking in the party! By partaking, we mean watching, and by the party, we mean football! A recent study showed that 55% of American ladies watch football. We have to admit, we’re a part of that percentage of ladies! Just because we’re a part of the American football craze doesn’t mean we have to eat and drink like one of the boys though! Even serve these healthy snacks and entrees for your Superbowl party. We even included gluten-free and vegan hot bites. Below, we’ve put together a ladylike menu for NFL television nights! Follow these 3 simple steps to throwing the chicest football party in town for you and your football-loving gal pals!
Editor’s Note: Each of the full recipes below can be found on Whitney Bond’s food blog, “Little Leopard Book“.
Step One: The Food Swap + Dessert
Swap #1 – Replace the Chips and Dip with Homemade Hummus and Veggies. Because hummus is filled with protein, antioxidants and Omega 3 fatty acids, it’s an appetizer the ladies will feel good about snacking on!
Swap #2: Instead of Fried Chicken Wings, try serving up Flavorful Buffalo Chicken Burgers. These burgers are made with all-white meat chicken breast and packed with veggies and spices for a delicious treat with less than half the calories and fat as their fried wing counterpart!
Swap #3: Serve the burgers up with a side of Homemade Sweet Potato Tots. These tots are gluten-free, vegan and packed with vitamins, because what’s more chic than healthy tots?
Dessert – Splurge on dessert with a sweet treat all the girls are sure to love, Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies! These cookies combine every girl’s favorite thing, chocolate, with the hazelnut spread that’s sweeping the nation, Nutella!
Step Two: The Drinks
Forget the beer, mix up some fruity sangria to keep things classy, yet sassy! Who doesn’t love a little sangria?
Step Three: The Décor
Who says a football party can’t have cute décor? Ditch those empty chip bags and pizza boxes for a lovely serving table for all of your delicious food and drinks!
Wishing everyone a happy and chic football weekend!!!
