Recipes with Rose: Super Bowl Super Foods

Americans love Super Bowl Sunday not only for the game, halftime show and commercials, but for the tasty gameday snacks. Did you know that Super Bowl Sunday is the second biggest day of food consumption after Thanksgiving? Before the Ravens and 49ers get ready to tackle each other on the football field this Sunday, we want to help you tackle your party menu!

We at BeeAlive believe that what we put in (and on) our bodies is fundamental to our health. Recent research shows that many party-goers are interested in healthier menu options. That is why we’ve compiled a list of super foods that can make your Super Bowl party a game day win among all fans.

Baked Buffalo Wings with Sweet Energy Honey Mustard

Don’t let the chicken wing shortage prevent you from nibbling every last morsel off the bone of this gameday traditional treat. Alton Brown’s Food Network recipe steams and bakes the chicken instead of deep-frying to avoid extra fat. And we at BeeAlive have the perfect finger-lickin’ sauce for dipping: Honey Mustard made with our very own Sweet Energy Formula that will have your guests begging for the recipe.

BeeAlive Sweet Energy Honey Mustard Dressing


1-1/4 cups of fat-free mayonnaise
1/3 cup of BeeAlive Sweet Energy Formula
1 tbsp. of vinegar
2/3 cup of vegetable oil
1 tsp. of onion flakes
2 tbsp. of chopped herbs of your choice
2 tbsp. of dijon mustard

In a small bowl, whisk together all ingredients until blended. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. Prepare for shortage.

Although avocados are nutritious and delicious, they’re also high in calories and fat (even if it’s the “good” kind). offers an exciting new twist on one of our favorite dishes with a low-calorie, low-fat substitute that packs a healthy punch of dietary fiber; protein; vitamins A, C, E and K; thiamin; riboflavin; and niacin to pair with your favorite (baked) chips! Click here for the recipe.

Baked Corn Tortilla Chips
Speaking of baked chips, offers another great recipe. No one will taste the difference; in fact, they’ll probably be asking you to open another “bag!”

Spinach & Artichoke Dip
With only 59 calories per serving, this spin off a gameday classic that includes lima beans, cream cheese, Tabasco sauce, capers and mustard is a deliciously devious way to get your friends and family to eat more iron-packed spinach. Click here for the recipe.

Vegan Chili
HellaWella’s healthy substitute for beef chili made with black beans, white beans, kidney beans and lentils, is packed with vitamins and minerals, including dietary fiber, folate, protein, vitamin C, riboflavin, thiamin, niacin, copper and manganese. We guarantee even the carnivores will be hitting the buffet for seconds. Click here for the recipe.

This Super Bowl Sunday, indulge in these "underdog" recipes based off of your favorite gameday classics. Your friends and family will thank you and perhaps even start "healthifying" their own diets when they experience how heavenly even healthy options can taste. I'd call that a win for the home team!
