Over 50 Healthy Game Day Recipes

The big game is just about a week away and I couldn’t be more excited to make all of the delicious game day recipes, watch the commercials, aaand that’s it.

Can we all agree that the best part of game day is the food? That’s why I put together 50 incredible, healthy game day recipes for you that are guaranteed crowd-pleasers. Whether it’s you and a roommate or a big group of friends, all of these recipes are adaptable for anyone and everyone.

I included a mix of easy slow cooker recipes, plenty of gluten free and veget، game day recipes, delicious finger foods and my absolute favorite desserts. Oh yes, there are even some fun, reader-favorite salads that people will want to add to their snack plates!

Take a scroll, make your game day menu, and even make some fun snacks with friends virtually! If you make any of these be sure to share a p،to on Instagram with the hashtag #ambitiouskitchen and in our Facebook group. Enjoy, xoxo!
