Superbowl Food: Paleo Style

By ShelleyB | In Nutrition | on February 1, 2012

It’s Superbowl time again! Whether you are invited to a party or throwing one yourself, you can still partake in the festivities without denying taste or sacrificing all that you have worked toward. Here are a few tips to remember when you attend a party in which you don’t have much control over what is being served.

1. Drink plenty of water and eat a paleo dinner BEFORE you head to your party. You will be less likely tempted if you are not hungry or dehydrated.
2. Limit your intake of alcohol. The more you drink, the more unaware you can become of what you are eating.
3. Load up on veggies and strictly meat items. Remove buns, bread, dairy from your food – or better yet, just don’t go for those items.
4. Bring something Paleo. If you bring it, you are assured to have SOMETHING you can eat.
5. HOST a party. Serve Paleo food, show your friends that Paleo does not have to be boring or tasteless!

Here’s a recipe to bring to your party:

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus:
1 1/2 pounds asparagus (24-32 stalks), ends trimmed (make sure the asparagus is the thin and spindly, not thick)
4 slices Trader Joe’s Nitrate Free Bacon
olive oil
course sea salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Trim ends off the asparagus, wash and pat dry. Brush olive oil on asparagus lightly and season with course sea salt and pepper. Wrap 6 – 8 stalks of asparagus with one slice of bacon and place bundle on a broiler or sheet pan, repeat with remaining asparagus and bacon. Bake for 12-14 minutes, turning bundles once halfway through. Bacon should be crisp and asparagus tender.

*If your asparagus bundles won’t hold together secure bacon with a toothpick or kitchen twine.*

* Paleo Chili
* Paleo BBQ Sausage Bites (Yonder Way Sausage in Paleo BBQ Sauce)
* Smoked Wild Caught Salmon
* Veggie Tray with Tahini Dip
* Angry Deviled Eggs (made with homemade mayo & horseradish to your normal Deviled Egg recipe)
* Salt and Vinegar Kale Chips
* If you want sweets at your party, choose a Paleo friendly recipe from Elana’s Pantry, Everyday Paleo, or Paleo Betty (NOTE: not everything on some of these websites are Paleo).

I would love to hear from you – what is your favorite Paleo Appetizer recipe or Paleo Superbowl treat? Post a recipe to share. If nothing else, let me know: New York Giants or New England Patriots??

Have a great time, watching the Superbowl. GO GIANTS!
