Meal Planning #12: Super Bowl Special: Food to feed your team.

The Super Bowl is coming up in a week. So this edition of Meal Planning (over 50 recipes), I have put together a huge assortment of Super Bowl snack/appetizers, along side the standard meal lineup. I also have quick breakfasts covered, kids snacks (chocolate pudding), a delicious wine option and lots of other delicious items. 

This week you can make the men in your life say "is there any more?," while tempting your taste buds.

I have kicked it up a notch, well for me anyways. I do not like much heat in my cooking. But this week there are some recipes which could heat things up (Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita and Jalapeno Rosemary Fritters). Know someone who loves to eat Pop Tarts, well then shoot this to them because they can now make their own, and with whole wheat flour or Gluten Free. 

What about the kids or kids at heart, in your life? They might not enjoy veggies right now, so make Fruit Tacos. Don't fret about breakfast, there are 20 + recipes to feed your brain and body. Lots more to choose from, including six Helpful Links.

Helpful Links this week are (below photos and recipes): 
1. 15 Fantastic Super Bowl Dips
2. Ideas for when you are so hungry you could eat a plate 
3. 7 recipes when you want some peanut butter
4.  Meal planning for a family on $250 a month
5. Learning all about green drinks
6. A month of stir fry recipes

PS. In some of these recipes it calls for cream cheese, milk, sour cream. A great alternative is Greek yogurt. To thin it out, you can add almond or coconut milk or use those in place of milk. If it calls for sugar you can try these alternatives from the Gluten Free Goddess Gluten Free Baking Substitutions & Gluten Free Baking Without Sugar.
