With all eyes on the television for 3+ hours, you don't have to break your "Eat Healthy and Get Fit" New Years Resolution with these health conscious snacks—that taste good, too!

1. Guacamole: the beloved party dip.

I have met very few people that dislike avocados. When their disinterest unveils itself, I always stand there dumbfounded for a few moments gathering my thoughts on why anyone would not like this delicious food. The other best part of guacamole—besides the staple avocado base—is it is so easy and simple to make. Listed are the ingredients you need to get your Superbowl party started.

Serving size: 1 bag of chips, number of mouths will vary.

  • 10 avocados
  • 1 lime
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 Tbsp. salsa
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • salt + pepper to taste

Mush avocado and stir in the rest of the ingredients. Enjoy! For chips that are decently healthy, try Trader Joe's Unsalted White Organic Tortilla Chips.

2. Tex-Mex bean dip: the real party starter dip.

Yes, another appetizer with Mexican influence. This is so easy to make, even your 12-year-old kid could make it (maybe you should let him). More than easy, it is delicious and huge crowd pleaser.

Serving size: 1 halftime show or seven Bruno Mars songs.

  • 2 cans of black beans
  • 1 can of yellow corn (can also do frozen corn)
  • 1 Tbsp. of cilantro
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1 tsp of red chili powder
  • 1 cup of brown rice (already cooked)
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 1/2 red onionn
  • 1.5 cups of shredded chicken breast (So you might have to help your 12-year-old with this part)

Combine all ingredients in a big bowl. Enjoy! Bring out at halftime, if you want to save it for the second half.

3. Kale chips: for your token vegan friend.

Kale is an amazing leaf that is very healthy for your body. While you might not necessary pair kale and Superbowl, these chips will start a new tradition amongst your friends, family, and whoever else is in your Superbowl entourage.

Serving size: About 4 commercial breaks.

  • 1 package of kale
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. salt (or garlic salt)
  • pepper to taste

Preheat over to 350

° F. Use a cookie sheet and rub the olive oil and kale together. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Check the chips after 10 minutes. You want them crunchy, but not blackened. Enjoy!
