Happy Monday! It is snowing like crazy so I have another snow day today- woot woot!
After walking to the gym this morning I looked like the abominable snow man 😛
This year, the Super Bowl was hosted by the wonderful Garden State. #SuperJersey! There’s something funny about Super Bowl Sunday- even if you don’t watch football at all, you’ll take time out to watch the big game. Maybe it’s for the commercials, opportunity to spend time with friends, or the half time show. Or because you actually like watching football (yeah, right). For me, it’s the food!!!
Although I love to eat healthy, the truth is that I love eating any food in general. That includes junk food! And we all know that Super Bowl Sunday is notorious for junk food. Didn’t you know that Super Bowl is actually short for Super Bowl-full-of-junk-food Sunday?
Fortunately, Super Bowl food does not have to be unhealthy. The best part about cooking is that you decide what goes into your food! There are many ways to get the taste that you want without putting your health at risk.
I love love love french onion dip with potato chips- absolutely one of my guilty pleasures. I consider it a junk food/ Super Bowl staple. If you make french onion dip with sour cream and mix, it’s really unhealthy! So here is an alternate version with yogurt- I meant to post this way before Super Bowl but of course you can make this any time! It’s so healthy that I made it for breakfast, and I swear that it tastes just like the real thing!
Healthy French Onion Dip
Serves 2-3 people
One container of plain Chobani greek yogurt
Two teaspoons olive oil
About half of a small red onion, diced
Salt and Pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together. Refrigerate overnight in a covered container for extra thickness. Serve with whole wheat crackers, rice crackers, veggies like carrot sticks, sliced peppers, or celery, or potato chips.
