Think “Classics”

Wings, nachos, dips… anything covered in buffalo sauce. They’re all calling your name this Super Bowl Sunday and they don’t have to be “unhealthy”.  Create a tasty, nutritious menu with just a few simple swaps.

Think Small

Bite sized, portable, and shareable are always better! Don’t want to miss any commercials.. I mean, the game…


Think Convenience 

Use the same ingredients for multiple appetizers to save time and money. Plan your menu ahead of time, prep in advance, and take advantage of cooking equipment (time to dust off the Instant Pot and Air Fryer)!


Some dishes, like Pesto Yogurt Dip or salsa, can be made ahead if you’ll be busy until kickoff. Others, like Loaded Sweet Potato Skins or Buffalo Cauliflower Bites, easily come together with the help of your trusty air fryer.
