Souper Bowl!!

Hey girls! Did you miss me? I have been a bit busy here, but I really wanted to get a recipe and a couple tips out to you before the big game on Sunday!
If you are like me you love a good party, and what’s at a good party? FOOD! But I know, you want to go and enjoy the party and not binge on  all of  the unhealthy foods.
So I have a couple of very easy healthy options that you can switch with some of your “not as healthy” options.
First, I know how you all love chips and dip. Me too. But here is a couple of  healthy options for you. Instead of all those high fat dips, make your own. Use a ranch packet or an onion soup packet and mix it with a container of greek yogurt. You then have a tasty dip to eat with some super yummy veggies such as peppers, carrots, celery, broccoli and cauliflower.
Okay, so maybe you dont like a ranch dip another great alternative is humus!
You can make your own humus with a can of white beans or chickpeas, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, a little garlic, a bit of rosemary, and a tablespoon of lemon juice.
If you heat up your olive oil and then saute your garlic and rosemary for about 2 minutes. And then food process everything! If you need too, you can add a bit of water. (a blender will word just fine too!)
This is another great dip to add with those veggies!
All right, so dips are great right, but you need some real food!
Here is a recipe that I made that I think will be just perfect for your big party.

Taco Soup (a fancy chili)
1 can of tomato juice
1 can of crushed tomatoes
2 cans of diced tomatoes (if you like it spicy you can use the kinds with green chilis in it!)
I can of black beans
1 can of corn.
2 packets of Taco seasoning
1 to 2 lbs. of ground turkey.
3/4 cup of Quinoa (pronounced keen wa)

First start by browning your ground turkey. After your turkey is all browned, add all of your cans! Just dump them all, no need to drain! Also, add your two packets of taco seasoning.
Simmer on medium heat. After about 25 minutes add your Quinoa. STIR!! If you start to boil you can turn your heat down just a bit. Stir your soup occasionally so your Quinoa doesn’t get clumpy!
Your soup is ready to eat when your Quinoa is done (it will be kinda clearish and not hard!)

Serve. This soup would be great with olives as well, but my family is not really a fan. I topped my soup with greek yogurt. (and my family used sour cream) and I added a couple of blue corn chips.
ENJOY!

I do hope that you have one great SOUPer Bowl party, and feel confident about having some good and tasty options to eat!

  1. This soup is very high in protein also. Meat, beans and quinoa are all very high. Protein fuels your body all day and helps build muscles; sooo if you are working out hard, eat more protein is important. Just FYI
