Healthy Game Day Bites!

By: Jacqueline Gomes, RDN, MBA

If you’re like me, you look forward to The Big Game for all the festive food and fun. Even if this year is a little quieter than normal, you can still whip up some healthy and tasty festive bites!

Hummus is a staple at any event, but rather than using it exclusively as a dip, use it as a healthy spread for flat bread pizzas!

Hummus is made with ground chickpeas and tahini (ground sesame seeds). Chickpeas are legumes rich in fiber and protein so you’ll have a filling snack any time!

Ready to serve store bought dips like Sabra hummus and guacamole make entertaining so much easier! Now let’s get to our tasty flatbreads!
