HyVee Healthy Super Bowl Recipes

Tackle a Football Party with a Winning Game Plan
Score big points on both nutrition and taste with a winning plan for football party fans. How? Hy-Vee Registered Dietitian, Nikki Ford, has the answer with a few big game party ideas.
– Kick off with bowls of soup, tailored to fit the palette of the Steelers or a bit of guacamole added for Cardinals fans. Keep the game in motion by serving big platters of fresh veggies and a tasty dip. Fill bowls with popcorn and top with peanuts; serve pretzels on the sidelines with assorted mustard dips.
– During half-time, fellow football fans will enjoy our recipe for an “Easy Muffuletta Sandwich”. Serve it with soup or stew or chili con carne.
– If the game goes into overtime, avoid a nutrition fumble by preparing a party tray filled with apple and pear slices, fresh strawberries and pineapple chunks. For more super party recipe ideas, go to
