Healthy Gluten Free Recipes for the Big Game


Welcome back to our weekly Foodie Friday link up! I’m linking up with Farrah from Fairyburger, Esther from Chocolate Runner Girl and Jess from Hello to Fit.  Also, make sure you hop around to check out all the amazing recipes in this link up and feel free to add your recipes as well! 

Before we dive into today’s post, I have something to confess.  Our theme is supposed to be “kitchen cleanse” today- meaning using food or ingredients that we have leftover in the fridge or pantry to create a recipe.  My confession: my post has NOTHING to do with “kitchen cleansing”.  In fact, none of these recipes are even new but I have good reason for being a rule breaker! 

You see, next Sunday is Super Bowl 50 and I figured a quick roundup of my favorite healthy gluten free recipes are in order.  I am aware that not all of you watch football or celebrate the Super Bowl like it’s a holiday (I do) but for those of you who, here are some healthy recipes that are touch down worthy! 

SCORE! Serve touchdown worth healthy gluten free and vegan recipes for game day! {SuperBowl 50 recipes, paleo, dairy free} TheFitFoodieMama.com

Let’s start with the finger foods (aka snacks) which is what all football fans are really about. 

Roasted Buffalo Chickpeas

These crunchy little buffalo wing inspired snacks were literally one of my first football recipes on the blog, so forgive the photography.  That being said,  don’t let the blurriness of the photo deter you from giving them a try.  They’re delicious, they’re nutritious and they’re the perfect snack to mindlessly shovel in your mouth as you’re shouting at the TV.

hahaha, I feel ya! I've been having trouble with cooking lately--who knew that after I wasn't moving every 2 weeks, it'd be even harder to get stuff done!? ._. Hopefully I'll find a way to balance stuff out a little more soon! Thanks for sharing all these delicious + healthy snacks! <3!! I still need those truffle fries in my life. *-*
