As mentioned in my previous post, Eric and I have been on the Arbonne Detox/cleanse. It’s been an intense (almost) 2 weeks. Filled with protein shakes, detox teas and, basically, no comfort foods.
. I’m still in shock that I managed to convince the hubs to do the detox. But he’s rocking it!! Losing weight, eating healthy and exercising! His one plea was last Sunday when the Colts were going to be on. No beer? No pizza? He wasn’t pleased. That’s when we decided to make our own game food. Food that would appease our cravings, yet stay within the detox and clean eating guidelines.
First up, chicken wings. Few things hit the spot like a spicy buffalo wing dipped in some delicious ranch. Eric decided on a dry rub recipe. Omitting the brown sugar, of course. Here’s the recipe for 24 wings,(we halved it)
* 1/2 c brown sugar
* 1 T chili powder
* 1 T paprika
* 1 T cumin
* 1 tsp cayenne pepper
* 2 T garlic powder
* 1 T mustard powder
* 2 T kosher salt
* 1 T Blk pepper
Cover the wings in the rub and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Put the wings in a 500 degree oven and cook for 30 minutes. Boom, done. They had the perfect amount of heat and we barely missed the ranch😉.
Next up, fries. Sweet Potato fries
*2 sweet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
* 1/2c coconut oil
* 1/2tsp kosher salt
* 1/4tsp pepper
* 1/4tsp paprika
Bake fries in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
Heat a saucepan on medium high and add in oil. Once oil is hot cook the fries until crisp, turning often.
Place fries in a brown bag and add seasonings. Toss until completely coated.
Lastly we enjoyed tons of veggies dipped in hummus. And there ya go, the perfect game day treat! Filling and definitely hit the spot!
