Many of you are aware, I have been active with numerous Super Bowls and guiding former NFL players and their families to enjoy cooking healthy foods.
As a little background, my very first experience was in 2008 when Super Bowl XLII was right here in Phoenix. My company created 3 healthy lifestyle products with the Super Bowl logo: a Zen Clock, Soy Candle Collection, and Matcha Tea kit. And, I had a lot of fun talking to football fans at the NFL Experience.
For a few years, we catered at the VIP Tailgate party at the Super Bowls in Tampa and Miami and attended numerous charity events networking with former NFL players. During Super Bowl XLIII week in Tampa, we learned about the serious health issues, such as diabetes, obesity, heart disease, of the former players and then started teaching several former players how to cook simple healthy foods.
In 2011, my company, Experience Nutrition Group, LLC, was honored to be an Official Health & Wellness Partner of the NFL Alumni and participated in 9 events in 4 days during Super Bowl Week in Dallas.
Since the Super Bowl and many former NFL players are still dear to my heart, I am sharing my favorite Super Bowl snack recipes with you: Experience Nutrition Hummus, Quick Salmon on the Grill, and Avocado Salsa.
Today’s recipe is hummus. Tomorrow I will post the salmon and avocado salsa recipes.
