This Sunday is the big day… the Saints vs Colts.  I really don’t care who wins, but I do care that my hubby will be glued to the couch on Sunday with the only exercise being trips to the bathroom and the hand-to-mouth gesture.

With that said, I will try and have healthy, yet tasty snacks on hand for him to enjoy during Superbowl Sunday.

Target sent me some snacks to try that will be perfect for game day!  They sent me Archer Farms Organic Mango Salsa and Archer Farms Blue Corn chips.  They also sent me Archer Farms Simply Balanced crackers, but they came completely broken in little pieces, so I won’t be serving them with cheese slices for my hubby as planned.  They are however very tasty and whole wheat, so I put them in a baggy for my 13 month old and gave her the little pieces for a snack.

Back to the Archer Farms Organic Mango Salsa and Archer Farms Blue Corn chips.  Talk about y-u-m-m-y!  Very tasty!  Actually, you might find me digging in with a spoon…the salsa is that yummy!  I looked for it at my local Target last night and couldn’t find it.  Not sure if it isn’t out yet, sold out or what, but I couldn’t find it.

Anyway, salsa and chips are so much better for the “hubster” than a sour cream dip and I rest assured he is eating healthy.

Super Bowl Snacks from Target’s Nutritionist Dr. Susan Mitchell:

  • Pizza Bites: Take an Archer Farms Simply Balanced pizza, such as Mediterranean Style Vegetable, bake as directed and then cut pizza into snackable, bite-sized pieces.  A great way to get an easy serving of nutrient-packed vegetables.
  • Garlic or Red Pepper Hummus: Simply serve with whole grain crackers, such as Archer Farms Simply Balanced whole grain eight grain crackers and veggie sticks.  Hummus is packed with great flavor and health benefits, with chickpeas being an excellent source of fiber.
  • Chips and Dip: Offer Archer Farms organic blue corn tortilla chips and organic mango peach salsa for a snack with a little kick.  As an added health benefit, all products in the Archer Farms collection have zero grams of added trans fats.
  • Fruit: Nothing is easier – or healthier – then serving a variety of fruit.  Arrange the fruit in a festive Super Bowl-style bowl with low fat yogurt and honey for a dip and watch it disappear!  Yogurt contains active live cultures and probiotics which promote digestive health and boost the immune system.
