My daughter-in-law recently turned me on to popular_paleo on Instagram and today she posted about her leftover rotisserie chicken that she mixed in with her Brussel sprouts. I thought, “Hey! I have some broccoli salad and leftover chicken breast!” So I made a delicious, quick meal out of both after mixing them together with a half of diced avocado. It took me about dos minutos to mix together and was yummy. What is my point? Find people on social media to get inspiration when you need it and share what you make as well. This real food journey we are on is revolutionary! People are out there that don’t know how to survive without processed food and have no clue that whole wheat sandwiches with low-fat, vegetable oil mayo is not good for them. Be a real food messenger and promoter.
We are so lucky to have such delicious and healthy real food choices for football snacks. When you can’t turn to chips and salsa, what do you do? Here four of my favorite snack foods.
1) Deviled Eggs (mix homemade mayo, mustard, salt, pepper, onion & dill pickles)
2) Honey Garlic Chicken Wings a la http://www.thepaleomom.com/2012/02/recipe-honey-garlic-chicken-wings.html I like to marinade them overnight and cook them on our Traeger Grill. Definitely a family favorite.
3) Sliced Veggies (cucumbers, carrots, broccoli stems, etc) & Guacamole Dip (mix avocado, lime, cilantro, salt, pepper, onion, garlic powder)
4) Stuffed Mushrooms (Mix cooked sausage, finely chopped mushroom stems, almond meal, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt & pepper-stuff mushrooms & bake)
These are just a few of my standards for football gatherings and are always eaten up quickly. We are fortunate to have a seemingly infinite resource pool for real food recipes. Here are a few good ones:
Plan ahead for the next big game and enjoy not only treating yourself, but knowing you are nourishing your body at the same time.
