I am looking for Super Bowl snack/food ideas that are low(ish) calorie. Any recipes you want to share?
(I don't eat fish or seafood btw)
Thanks!

If you like hummus you can make your own healthier low calorie version with a food processor. I like spicy, so I add one can of Chickpeas, a half cup of hot salsa, cayanne pepper, tabasco chipotle, and minced garlic.

Eat with low fat crackers

You could also do a layered bean dip. Make or use no fat refried beans, fat free sour cream, low cal salsa, and be conservative with your cheese. Season sour cream with taco seasoning.

Use low fat crackers instead of chips.

I'm not sure what else to add, but if you go on websites like allrecipies.com then find something you like and try to modify ingredients to low fat substitutes...it will decrease your calories a LOT!

Fat Free Greek Yogurt mixed with an envelope of ranch dressing mix makes an AWESOME veggie dip :).

I saw this recipe yesterday and thought it would be yummy as mini tartlets..or maybe piped on chocolate gramcrackers.

Peanut Butter Yogurt Pie
from little bitty bakes blog (http://www.littlebittybakes.com/2012/01/peanut-butter-yogurt-pie/)

Rich and creamy peanut butter pie in an Oreo crust. Made with just Greek yogurt and peanut butter, the tart peanut butter filling is loaded with healthy fats and protein. No-bake and simple prep make it a must-try!

Serves 10

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: N/A

32 ounces vanilla Greek yogurt (I’m partial to Chobani)
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
9-inch crust of your choice (Oreo, graham cracker, etc.)
In a large mixing bowl, stir the yogurt and peanut butter with a wire whisk until blended. Spread into the prepared pie shell. Chill the pie overnight (the pie will be thicker the longer it is chilled). Serve with chopped peanut butter cups or whipped cream, if desired."
