10 Healthy Thai Appetizers Perfect For Super Bowl Snacks
This SuperBowl Sunday is going to be one of my personal most anticipated games ever and I intend to have healthy Super Bowl snacks on hand. If I'm watching high -performance athletes I just want to be one and these are 10 choices of snacks to make sure I at least don't feel guilty that I'm not doing my best. Tom Brady is my favorite Pro Football player as a guy with similar age and phenotype to mine. You can see how long a guy can not only be a professional athlete but a dominant one. He has his own theories of what defines a healthy lifestyle too making him an even better beacon of light, guiding the way. I'm a super-fan of his, regardless of how baseless his diet claims are as this article seems to point out. Here are my favorite healthy choices for this Super Bowl Sunday.
#10 Grilled Turmeric Chicken Tenders
If you like to fire up the grill for your Super Bowl Party, this is a fun recipe to do. It has the sweet and spicy flavors of Thai Sambal, garlic chili sauce and is easy to make with only 3 ingredients. Garnish it with cilantro and serve it up on paper plates for a high protein lean treat.
#9 Thai Shrimp and or Crab Cakes
Shrimp and crab cakes are delicious and can be nutritious if you watch what you put into them. They are easily platable with toothpicks and served with your favorite sauces as finger food for parties.
#8 Baked Chicken Wings With Thai Laab Seasoning
Baking chicken wings is an easy alternative to frying them and there's less mess. You can easily buy Thai seasonings like Larb, also pronounced laab, and put them on your wings before baking them.
#7 Whole Wheat Roti and High Protein Peanut Butter
Whole Wheat Roti and Peanut Butter can be folded into delicious little taco like finger foods. They are damned good and full of stuff your body needs to perform like Tom Brady.
#6 Thai Red Curry Puffs
We had never had Thai Red Curry Puffs prior to finding them in a Thai cookbook and making our own, healthier version. They have continually ranked in our top 40 recipes on our blog. They are a perfect party popper with some sweet Thai chili sauce.
#5 Prik Glua Thai Fruit Dip
Prik Glua translates into chili flake salt if you translate it directly. You can use a salt substitute if you want and you can find the exotic fruits of Thailand more and more commonly. Thanks to stores like Whole Foods and Amazon, pushing shipping technology in the right direction putting together should be easier than ever, where-ever you live. It is one of the most typical things Thai families enjoy for social gatherings and once you try it you will understand why.
#4 Thai Pepper Garlic Pork
Thai pepper garlic pork is a highly dippable and delicious white meat recipe. You can put it on toothpicks and serve it hot like the people in the food courts a malls giving out samples. There is a reason they always give out hot and flavorful meats to lure in customers. These are a fan favorite.
#3 Starbucks Copycat Thai Chicken Snack Wraps
I always used my rewards at Starbucks to buy their snack wraps. They discontinued them but fortunately, not before we reverse engineered them the best we could. You can enjoy these at home now. 🙂
#2 Baked Tofu Snack
This is something Mod likes and one of the most loved recipes on our blog.
#1 Copycat Buffalo Wild Wings Thai Curry Wings
This is one of our top recipes every year since we posted it. I think people like how we were able to capture the flavor even though it is not a common Thai curry flavor and is more like an Indian curry. My wife has been such a good foodie and spiced my life up in so many ways. Every week I learn something new about Thai food like when she said this does not taste like Thai curry at BWWs one night. You have to try this to see what I mean.
There are so many others I could have included here from our appetizer category but I chose the most popular 10. I can't just watch an athletic event like the SuperBowl without thinking about what I am doing myself to enjoy a high-performance body. I can't be the only one who feels this way either so I'm guessing that including at least one healthy option at a party would be worth a try if nothing else. As always, we make our healthy Thai recipes as healthy as we can but your health is fact dependant. If you have special concerns or considerations you are worried about follow up with a qualified professional like your doctor. I like the mantra, "When in Doubt, Check it Out".
