Big Game is this weekend and you’re probably thinking, how will I continue on the path to a healthy life and survive Big Game snack time?
I have the answer for you!
You don’t need to sacrifice on the flavor, neither on the fun and even if you are going to a friend’s house, you can still bring some of the great options I am sharing below!
Here is one of my favorite Brazilian appetizer recipes, paleo and whole 30 compliant:
- 1 pkg Bacalau (Salted Cod Fish)
- Cilantro chopped
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- 3 Eggs
- 1 tsp Paprica
- 1/2 cup Almond milk
- 1 & 1/2 cup Avocado Oil
Place cod in warm water for 3 hours and change water, to reduce the salt. Boil it for 10 minutes and reserve.
Place oil on a skillet and heat to medium temperature.
Mix all ingredients but milk, add them slowly, and milk last, to reach a soft consistency to be scooped with a spoon to fry. If you wish to make the balls with your hand, you will need to add gluten free flour and less milk than above.
I use a spoon and scoop each time, trying to keep the same size.
Place the scooped ball mixture into the oil and fry the cod fish balls to golden brown.
Optional: Add some red pepper flakes or chilly powder to the mix to add some kick to it! Delicia!
The original recipe calls for Flour and bread crumbs, if you are not on a low calorie regimen, check the original recipe out: Cod Fish Balls. But I can assure you, this version is amazing as well!
You’re probably wondering where you will find bacalao/ bacalhau?? You can find it at most grocery isles where they have the fish.
Here are some of my other favorites:
I also make sure we have a nuts, olives, fruits and vegetables every time I host a party!!! You can also search for kosher, vegan and healthier brands for sausage and barbecue sauce for your delicious wings!!!
Among my favorites, since my approach doesn’t allow peanuts, I stay with cashews and my all time favorite: the Pistachios! So many options you can just get crackin’ !!
What are your all time Big Game Favorite Appetizers? I’m always looking for new healthy options!
