Thrifty Thursdays: Healthy Superbowl Snack Savers

What's more thrifty then staying home for the Superbowl and hosting a little party yourself? You will most certainly save on money- an 18 pack of bud-light bottles cost $14.99 at the local liquor store, while 1 bottle at the local bar costs $4. (That's a difference of $3.17  per bottle!) On top of that, you save a heck of a lot on calories when you eat at home. With dining out, it is difficult to determine exactly what you are consuming since there are many high-sodium and artificial ingredients that go into many restaurant dishes. As a result, restaurant dishes have a much higher level of fat & calories then those made at home. 

So today, I am going to show you some healthy Superbowl snacks that you can buy right at your local grocery store, as well as some of my favorite healthy Game-Day recipes to make at home.

Game Day Grocery Store List

Homemade Appetizers:

 Red Pepper & Bacon Sweet Potato Skins (from the Undressed Skeleton

Healthy Buffalo Chicken Dip Stuffed Peppers (from Fight the Inner Foodie)

Homemade Spreads

Healthy 6-Layer Dip Recipe (from Women's Health Magazine)

Homemade Dessert 

Skinny Fudge Brownies with Butterscotch Drizzle (from Back for Seconds Blog)

I hope that I have made your Superbowl snacking, a little thriftier & healthier for you. And while I am sad that the Pats aren't in it, I am looking forward to the Super Bowl commercials, like this Budweiser commercial that will be aired on game-day that will absolutely melt your heart...

Create a Thrifty Thursday everyone! Below is your daily dose of inspiration.
