Healthy Super Bowl Snacks

Chicken Teriyaki Meatballs

 1 lb ground chicken
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
6 Tbsp 
coconut aminos (a soy free version of soy sauce)
2 Tbsp honey
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 garlic cloves, minced

 

Prepare the meatballs by mixing the ground chicken with 1 tsp each of salt, black pepper, and garlic powder.  Form the meat mixture into meatballs (should make about 20 small meatballs).  In a large skillet, heat 2 Tbsp of oil over medium-high heat.  Sear the meatballs for about 6-8 minutes, turning the meatballs for even searing.  While the meatballs are cooking, combine the remaining ingredients for the teriyaki sauce. Then, add the sauce to the skillet, cover, and cook the meatballs through (about 3-4 minutes). Remove the meatballs and keep warm.  Allow the sauce to reduce and thicken (about 5 minutes). Once reduced, add the meatballs to the pan and toss to coat.

BACON WRAPPED BUTTERNUT SQUASH BITES (LOW CARB AND PALEO)

2 1/2 lbs butternut squash
15 slices of bacon
Olive oil
Chili powder
Garlic powder
Salt

Preheat the oven to 350 F.  Peel and trim the butternut squash.  Cut the squash into 1″ cubes (discard the seeds and pulp–makes about 30 cubes).  Place the squash in a bowl and drizzle with oil and sprinkle with chili powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper–to taste.  Toss to coat.  Cut the bacon in half, width wise.  Wrap half a bacon slice around one squash cube and place, seal side down on a foil lined baking sheet.  Repeat for the reminder of the squash cubes.  Bake for 20 minutes.  Flip the bites over (careful not to unwrap the bacon) and bake for another 20 minutes or until the squash is tender and the bacon is cooked through.  If you want to bacon crispier, broil it for the last 3-5 minutes of baking (keep an eye on it).*You could also use toothpicks to seal the bacon, if necessary
