Super Bowl Sunday is right around the corner! In an effort to banish the bloat and feel your best this Sunday, check out the following recipe for wings and dip. They are sure to please the crowd and leave guests asking for more!
Instead of deep frying the wings, the following method utilizes the oven for a baked wing that is finished in the broiler for a nice crispy skin. The sauces are homemade and simple so you don’t have to stress about all of the extra preservatives and dyes commonly found in store-bought marinades and sauces. The wing/veggie dip is also super simple and full of healthy probiotics.
Bonus, we used a ton of spices that have anti-inflammatory benefits so feel free to play with the amounts and make the sauces and dips your very own.
With a spread like this, you can enjoy your Super Bowl Sunday without resorting to Tums and other digestive aids after it is all said and done… Check out the recipes below!
