Yes, the Superbowl is a few days away and recipe suggestions online, in print and on TV are everywhere. Some are for the usual suspects, i.e. chicken wings, nachos, and so on while others claim to be healthier. However, if you are avoiding carbs, especially grains and trying to “stay Paleo” joining in the Super Bowl food fest an be a challenge. Not to worry, Diva Foodies has some suggestions for Paleo Super Bowl Recipes that will cover you in all the important Super Bowl food groups: Pizza, Chili, and Chicken Wings.
- Paleo Pizza: I have to admit, pizza is one of the things I miss the most in a Paleo grain free diet. However, one of the things that I have learned to truly love is the versatile, super healthy Paleo compliant cauliflower. Imagine my delight to find cauliflower pizza crust recipes! This one from All Recipes is the most simple with only cauliflower, cheese, an egg and seasoning. You can top it as you choose. This cauliflower pizza crust from Independent Kitchen is more elaborate and uses almond flour along with cauliflower. If cauliflower isn’t your thing, here is a beet pizza crust recipe from Runnin Srilankan however it uses quinoa that is maybe not so Paleo. For a pizza crust that is closest to a flour version, this Deep Dish Skillet Sausage Pizza from All Day I Dream About Food (don’t we know!) may just do the trick.
- Paleo Chili: Paleo chili is a much easier endeavor on a Paleo diet and therefore a great choice for Paleo Super Bowl recipes. There are many choices made from beef, pork and/or turkey. Paleo Grubs offers up 47 Hearty Paleo Chili Recipes and Paleo Living Magazine has 49 Paleo chili recipes. On the other hand, if you already have a favorite chili recipe or recipes it is pretty easy to make it Paleo. Some version of Paleo chili is on my menu at least once a week.
- Chicken Wings: NomNomPaleo offers up a Paleo chicken wing recipe that could definitely “light up” your Paleo Super Bowl dining. Her delicious Chili Lime Chicken Wings pack a punch and would be a great addition to Super Bowl XLlX. 20 other Paleo chicken wing recipe suggestions can be found in a collection from the ever collectible Paleo Grubs. Sign me up for the Paleo Pecan Smoked Chicken Wings With Ranch Dressing from Three Diets One Dinner.
Enjoy the Super Bowl!
