Superbowl Sunday is coming up and we're right in the middle of one of the biggest transformation challenges we've ever had at Aspire Fitness.
We wanted to do our best to help our members be able to enjoy the game, but still feel like they were staying on track with their goals.
Here's a list that Aspire Fitness Coach, Dori Kershner, put together that still taste great, AND save you a ton of calories.
Baked Onion Rings
Nonstick cooking spray
1 Bag Baked Potato chips
½ teaspoon cayenne (optional)
½ teaspoon cumin (optional)
1 cup lowfat buttermilk
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 to 2 large Vidalia onions, peeled
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Spray a baking sheet slightly with oil and set aside. Place
potato chips in a food processor and process into crumbs, about 20 seconds. Transfer to a
shallow bowl, add cayenne, and set aside. In another bowl, combine buttermilk, 2
tablespoons of flour, salt and pepper and set aside. Slice onions into 1/2-inch circles and
separate into rings, keeping only large, whole rings (reserve rest of onions for other uses). You
should come out with about 12 to 14 rings.
Place the remaining flour in a sealable plastic bag, then add onions, and shake to coat. Dip
onions 1 at a time into the buttermilk mixture, then dip into potato chip crumbs and place on
oiled baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, or until coating is crisp. Season with salt, to taste, and
Cauliflower Pizza Bites

½ package of defrosted frozen spinach (squeeze out excess water)
2-3 oz shredded mozzarella cheese

Combine cauliflower, eggs, spices, turkey and spinach and mix well in a bowl.
Grease a muffin tin with olive oil spray
Fill the muffin tins with mixture
