Healthy Super Bowl Snacks

Fruit Skewers

Tomato Basil Skewers with Balsamic Glaze
It's nice to serve appetizers that don't require a plate. These are great because you get all yummy flavors of a caprese salad, but you can skip the toasted bread (as in bruschetta). You can drizzle the skewers with some good olive oil, balsamic vinegar and cracked pepper. You can also cook down the balsamic vinegar in a pan over medium heat and make a glaze to drizzle on top too.

Vegetarian Chili
Load up on tasty veggies and you won't even miss the meat! You could use lean ground beef or lean ground turkey to cut back on some of the fat.

Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Chips 
Tasty and fun. This is always a hit!

Veggie Flatbread with Hummus

I like this brand of hummus. Last time I tried the roasted pine nut and it was delicious.

Take wheat flatbread, brush with olive oil and sprinkle with rosemary. Bake for a couple of minutes to bring out the fragrance of the rosemary. Top with chunks of goat cheese, roasted peppers, caramelized onions, tomatoes, klamata olives and artichoke hearts. Put back in the oven and bake for a few more minutes to heat up the veggies. Cut into slices, serve with hummus.

Yogurt/Ice Cream Bar
A versatile dessert that everyone can enjoy!
Get a couple containers of ice cream and frozen yogurt (or even sorbets and sherbets.). Along with the usual sugary toppings like sprinkles, oreo cookies and chocolate sauce, serve some healthy options too. Granola, sliced almonds, fresh blueberries, dark chocolate chips, sliced strawberries and bananas, nuts and dried fruit are all good substitutions.
