Superbowl Sunday: clean game day recipes

This Sunday, family rooms and sports bars throughout the nation will transform into seas of orange, blue, and green. As Broncos and Seahawks fans gather around the TV to watch the big game, rivalries between devotees of opposing teams are sure to transpire. History, though, has shown that we can all rejoice over food.

Acting as a mediator of sorts, appetizing game day food isn't just a fun addition, it's a must. To keep our taste buds and stomachs in good spirits from kickoff to the winning point, a spread of healthy, finger-friendly snacks should be well within reach. Perhaps by avoiding indigestion and bloat from the usual selection of less-than-healthy, store-bought Super Bowl snacks, some of the competitive talk can be kept at bay (just a thought). So, ditch the cheese puffs and deep-dish pizza and see if any of the clean and ever-appropriate recipes below strike your fancy!

Skinny Buffalo Chicken Strips

Ranch Turkey Sliders

Loaded Sweet Potato Nachos

Lighter Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Baked Portabella Mushroom Taquitos

Black Bean and Edamame Sliders

Lightened Up Mac & Cheese Bites

Grilled Lemon Chicken Skewers

Cornmeal Parmesan Chili Crusted Salmon Fingers

Baked Root Vegetable Chips

Forget the game. I'll be busy digging into the food.
