Sharing My Favorite Healthy Recipes That *Actually* Taste Good for Game Day!

I’m the last person to sit down and watch the Super Bowl for the actual game itself. I’m all about making some epic snacks and eats though. Usually we are with friends and family on the Super Bowl, but this year it’ll be Jord, Ez, myself and this cutie in my belly! Keeping things simple and delicious (duh) with some homemade wings from my cookbook, homemade pizzas and my buffalo chicken chili soup (yum!). Plus 2 different desserts but we haven’t agreed on those yet – ha!

I have rounded up a bunch of my favorite blog recipes that are delicious and tasty and still healthy to make this weekend. The ultimate “game day” food as they call it.

If you have my cookbook, Just the Good Stuff, here are a few of the recipes from there I recommend for the day:
