It’s Super Bowl weekend and the only way I could be more excited is if my team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, were playing! However, I love this year’s dynamics!
First of all, it is a brother vs. brother showdown! John Harbaugh, coach of the Baltimore Ravens, will face off against his 15-months younger brother Jim, head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. On top of that, this will be Ray Lewis’ last game EVER. I’m sure the men of that team will be fighting for his last game to be a Super Bowl win. Finally, who can forget the heart-wrenching story of Michael Oher from the movie the “Blind Side.” The Ravens drafted Oher, in 2009 and this will be his first Super Bowl appearance.
With all of the hype around the teams this year, how can you not be excited for the big game? My friends and I definitely are! We will be having a potluck party to watch the game. I decided I wanted to bring something slightly healthier than your average Super Bowl dish, so I created a fruit salsa with cinnamon chips.
Wondering what nutrients are in this salsa? Well for starters, kiwis have folic acid, vitamin C, vitamin E, calcium, fiber, and other great benefits. Blueberries, strawberries, and coconut oil provide you with anti-oxidants and cinnamon may lower cholesterol! Overall, this great tasting dish has tons of great benefits; just make sure to go easy on how much sugar you add.
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 kiwis, peeled and diced
2 apples, peeled and diced
8 ounces of blueberries
1 carton of strawberries, diced
White sugar, to taste
Brown sugar, to taste
3 tablespoons fruit preserves (I used raspberry)
10 whole-wheat tortillas
Kelapo Coconut Oil, melted
1 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix kiwis, apples, blueberries, strawberries, white sugar, brown sugar, and fruit preserves. Cover and chill in the refrigerator.
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
3. In a small bowl, mix together white sugar and cinnamon.
4. Coat one side of each tortilla with melted Kelapo Coconut Oil. Sprinkle tortillas with desired amount of cinnamon sugar. Cut into wedges and arrange in a single layer on a large baking sheet.
5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Allow to cool and serve with chilled fruit dip.
I can’t wait for the game on Sunday! What will you be serving at your Super Bowl party this year?
