In honor of Super Bowl XLIX this year, we’ve pulled together 49 of our favorite recipes for appetizers, snacks, dips, chili and desserts – that will work perfectly if you’re in search of something lighter and healthier.
It’s so easy to overdose on pizza, wings, chips and more – but if you’re looking for something a little lighter, you’re in the right place.
This year’s Super Bowl is being played in Glendale, Arizona, and will match the NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks against the AFC Champion New England Patriots. Kickoff is scheduled for 4:25pm (MST).
