Getting Ready for the Super Bowl

Super Bowl Sunday is almost here, and the thought of putting together snack trays can be overwhelming. However, there is no need to stress! Here are some tips on how to make prepping easy.

1. Focus on the Dips

Let me start off by saying, I am a huge snack person, and dips are my absolute favorite things to try for variation. Personally, I love the brands' Kite Hill, Cava (for hummus), and Field + Farmer, all of which are sold at Whole Foods. For the Super Bowl, these are my top five favorite dips that will please the whole crowd.

Kite Hill Queso (best paired with chips, carrots, or snap peas)

Field + Farmer Spinach Artichoke Dip (best paired with carrots, cauliflower, and snap peas)

Kite Hill French Onion Dip (best paired with broccoli, carrots, cauliflower)

Field + Farmer Garlic Chive Dip (best paired with crackers, cauliflower, snap peas)

Kite Hill Garlic and Herb Soft Spreadable Cheese (best paired with crackers and carrots)

2. Cut up Those Veggies

It is very easy to only put out chips and crackers for snacking, however, I highly recommend not even tempting yourself. Cut up the veggies before you even go into the pantry. If you enjoy projects, make it fun by placing them on a platter in a pattern, and if not, throw the veggies in a big bowl and it’s as easy as that.

My favorite veggies that pair well with almost everything are carrots, snap peas, cauliflower, and broccoli. If you are feeling more variety, add bell pepper, cucumbers, and celery to the mix. Carrots are a personal favorite and very easy chip substitute. Instead of going for the bag of potato chips, grab a plateful of carrots and snack as much as you want guilt-free. It easily replaces that need for something crunchy.

3. A Little PREP Goes A Long Way

I cannot say it enough, prep is the most important thing when it comes to maintaining a stress-free plant-based lifestyle. It is no lie that plant-based foods require much more preparation and cooking time, however, if you plan it out right, you can make your life a lot easier. First things first, pick three or four snack recipes that you want to make a couple of days before. Write out a grocery list of everything you’re going to need so you only have to make one trip. Carefully read the recipe instructions to the end and even the notes. You can often get some tips before you even start.

The most important thing is to remember is to enjoy yourself. If you’re craving chips, have some chips, in moderation of course! If cooking does not fit into your schedule this weekend, then pick up some pre-cut veggies at the grocery store, buy some dip, and call it a day. I hope these tips are beneficial! Feel free to share any comments and other tricks/recipes for Super Bowl Sunday. Enjoy the big game!!
