Five on Friday: Healthy Game Day Eats!

Friday, January 30, 2015

I've totally been in the mood for appetizers lately. You know like an entire meal made of ordering an appetizer platter at your favorite restaurant and making that your dinner. Anyone else love to do this? 

So with the Super Bowl coming up this weekend I thought why not make an entire dinner of just appetizers, or who knows maybe we will have appetizers for both lunch and dinner on Sunday. While looking for ideas on Pinterest, I came across these healthier versions of some of our favorite appetizers and I am definitely going to try a few of these this weekend. I'll be sure to share next week which ones were winners (I'm working on a menu planning post sharing some of our favorite recipes from this last month), but wanted to share all of these today in case anyone else had a craving for appetizers for dinner. 

1. Thai Sticky Chicken Fingers from Iowa Girl Eats

2. Sweet Potato Nachos from Paleo Grubs

3. Skinny Taco Dip from Damn Delicious

4. Buffalo Chicken Quiona Bites from Nature Box

5. Baked Zucchini Sticks from Skinny Taste

I've made the sweet potato nachos before and they are pretty easy and really good...very filling too! I'm definitely planning on making those and I've already got the ingredients for the Buffalo Chicken Quiona Bites. Debating on trying out the Thai Sticky Chicken Fingers or those Baked Zucchini Bites which look just like cheese straws. Oh who are we kidding, I want to try them all!

What are your favorite healthy appetizers? Has anyone tried any of these recipes and if so, what did you think?

Happy Friday!
