5 Healthy Tailgating Snacks + Lemon Superfood Bar Recipe

It’s TAILGATING SEASON! While typical tailgate fare consists of hot dogs and chips, that doesn’t mean that you’re stuck with unhealthy snacks that are committing fouls against your waistline.

All it takes is a bit of prep before you enter the stadium parking lot, and I thought I’d help by sharing some of my favorite wholesome snack ideas for game day. After fueling up on these foods, you’ll feel LIGHT + FULL OF ENERGY to cheer on your team to victory!


Trail Mix

Forego the gas station trail mix and blend up a bag at home. I love making a blend of golden berries, goji berries, cacao nibs, almonds, cashews, and walnuts (Nuts.com carries amazing nuts + also has great snack ideas).


Pumpkin Seeds

If you’re making pumpkin pie or soup from scratch, save the seeds and roast them for a nutrient-dense snack! These brain-boosting seeds are excellent sources of manganese, phosphorus, copper, magnesium, fiber, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids. Toss them with cinnamon, coconut sugar, and Berry Bliss for a sweet treat!

Superfood Popcorn

While popcorn gets a bad rap for usually being coated in artificial butter flavoring and excess salt, it’s actually quite healthful! Popcorn is a great source of whole grains, dietary fiber, and polyphenols, which aid the body in preventing degenerative diseases like diabetes and osteoporosis. Air pop up a batch of organic popcorn and toss with pink Himalayan salt and coconut oil or score bonus points for making one of these Superfood Popcorn Toppings.

Green Dream Protein Bites

If you have a sweet tooth, these detoxifying Green Dream Protein Bites make the perfect tailgating snack! The day before the game, mix up cashews, dates, Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend, cinnamon, coconut oil, nut butter, and sea salt in a food processor and then sculpt them into little balls. Sprinkle on unsweetened coconut flakes and then freeze (just be sure to take them out before leaving the house!).


 

Superfood Lemon Bars

I have so many lemons from my lemon tree, and it feels so awful wasting them! I wanted to create a fun fall recipe, something easy to snack on or have for breakfast when we’re on the run. The best bars are a combo of simple sugars for instant energy, complex carbs for more lasting energy, + a bit of healthy fat to combat any hunger pangsespecially at a game when you’re facing limited wholesome options.

These are so delicious and an unbeatable way to enjoy a collection of natural ingredients like chia seeds, dates, oats, and Philosophie superfood blends.

Gather This:


Do This:

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Lightly grease an 8x8 pan with coconut oil or use parchment.

In a small bowl, mix the chia seeds and lemon juice. Set aside for 20 minutes to allow the seeds to become saturated and bulk up. Stir once halfway through.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, mix together the oat flour, Berry Bliss, Green Dream, baking powder, salt, and 3/4 cup coconut flakes. Sprinkle in the lemon zest and mix again until distributed. In a separate bowl, combine the coconut oil, Coconut Bliss, applesauce, and maple syrup.

Mix in the soaked chia seeds. Chop the pitted dates very finely, and mix in with the other wet ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ones, and stir until blended. Spread the mixture into the prepared baking pan, using a spatula to flatten out the surface. Sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons of coconut flakes on top, patting it down lightly into the mixture.

Bake for 25 minutes, until the edges begin to turn golden brown. While warm, cut into 12-15 squares. Bag up for your next tailgating party!

Cacao Magic Beet Smoothie Bowl Recipe

Hey loves! My stunning Philosophie Babe, Marissa Cohen, shared her smoothie recipe with me and I could not possibly be more in love with it. As an expecting mama, the metabolism and energy kick I get from this recipe are an absolute must. What’s good for me is good for baby girl! Here’s why Marissa swears by this recipe, a delicious and nourishing blend of Cacao Magic Superfood and beets.

I love this smoothie for several reasons. First of all, it looks like a shade of lipstick I used to steal from my mother and wear like a #princess. More importantly, it tastes amazing! I love incorporating grounding, hearty root vegetables into my main meals, so I figured I could give them a chance in my smoothies. It was a success! In this recipe, I used beets, which are full of fiber and nutrients. Beets cleanse the liver too, making them a great veggie to include in your breakfast. They also pair perfectly with Cacao Magic Superfood to create a rich, deep flavor. This smoothie is thick and satisfying, and it gets your metabolism and brain going first thing in the morning. I hope you love this smoothie bowl as much as I do!

 

Gather This:

1 large or two small beets (you can steam raw beets and then freeze them, or buy beets without any vinegar on them)

1/4 avocado

1/2 frozen banana

1-2 tablespoons Cacao Magic Coconut Butter

2 tablespoons Cacao Magic Superfood + Protein Blend

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1 teaspoon Cacao Bee Honey + extra for drizzling

 

Do This:

Throw the beets, avocado, banana, Cacao Magic Superfood, and cinnamon into a high-power blender and blend until smooth. Top with banana, granola (optional) and a drizzle of Cacao Bee Honey and enjoy!

Avocado Curry Toast Recipe

Yummy, nutritious food will make you feel so good and full of that holiday cheer. I’ve been feeling inspired by Kara Elise’s TOAST cookbook. It has so many beautiful, simple toast recipes which are the BEST thing for a busy mama.

I added a Philosophie touch to this variation of an avocado toast. I explored flavor combinations and experimented with playing in the kitchen. I’ve had a interest in curry and came across Jem Organics’ Cashew Curry Tahini and fell in love. It’s made up of five organic ingredients (cashews, sesame seeds, coconut sugar, curry powder, salt) and works as a spread or drizzle. This nutty, bold taste mixed with the subtle, powerful kick of Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend is magical.

This is such an energizing and satisfying snack or breakfast meal on the go. It’s full of healthy fats and superfoods; ready to keep you moving from yoga class to holiday shopping.

Gather This:

Kite Hill Chive Cream Cheese

1 avocado, sliced

¼ pea sprouts

Drizzle of Jem Organics’ Cashew Curry Tahini

A sprinkling of Everything but the Bagel Seasoning (Trader Joe’s)

½ tsp Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend

 

Do This:

Toast bread, spread on the cream cheese, top with avocado slices and a sprinkling of pea sprouts. Finish with a drizzle of curry tahini, seasoning, and Green Dream Superfood + Protein Blend. Enjoy!
