Super Bowl Snacks

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

I hope your weekend has gone well. Since It's Sunday, I wanted to share a few recipes (although I know it seems like that is all I have been doing lately). I do have some health subjects coming up this week to discuss such as the importance of sleep.

Since it is the super bowl I wanted to share a few healthy snacks to make.

Maple Fruit Dip, From "Taste of Home"

1/2 cup fat free vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup light or fat free cool whip
4 Teaspoons of sugar free or light maple syrup
Dash of Cinnamon, to your taste.

Mix all together and serve with strawberries, bananas and apples. It is delicious!

Easy Baked Mozzarella Sticks:
8 light or fat free string cheese sticks
2 TBS flour
2 large egg whites, whisked together
1 cup of either breadcrumbs, cracker crumbs, cornflake crumbs, panko. Whichever you choose.
Seasoning to taste, I chose Italian Seasoning
Marinara Sauce for dipping.

Freeze Cheese for one hour prior to baking to prevent oozing. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place Flour and seasoning in one dish, egg whites in one dish and crumbs in one dish. Cut the string cheese in half width wise. Dip in flour, egg whites then crumbs. Dip in the egg and then crumbs again. Squeeze crumbs to cheese to adhere to cover the cheese well. This will be messy! Place on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper or sprayed with cooking oil. Bake 10-15 minutes or until golden. Serve warm with marinara sauce.

I hope you enjoy these snacks and have fun watching the game.
Stay Active!

Make today good!
