6 High Protein Snack Recipes for Super Bowl Sunday
Planning to treat yourself and have an epic cheat day during the Super Bowl? Check out these 6 recipes to get all of the taste without unnecessary macros.

Super Bowl Sunday might as well be classified as an American holiday.

Honestly, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Football for the actual fans, superstar halftime performances for music lovers, and multi-million dollar commercials that rival anything opening in the box office that weekend.

I feel like I’m forgetting something…

Oh yea! Tons of food! Like enough food to get double the amount of calories in your average bulker’s diet plan.

Seriously, the calorie count of the average American during the day of the Super Bowl rivals that of any major holiday in the calendar year, including Thanksgiving.

We here at Muscle & Strength know most of you are only a few weeks into your New Year Resolution of swoledom, so we’ve put together a list of 6 high protein Super Bowl snacks you can enjoy guilt free during the big game.

Game Day Bulking Nachos Recipe

I don’t know about you, but something about a football game makes me want to devour an entire plate of nachos.

Doing this with most nacho recipes (you know, the basic shredded cheese covered tortilla chips nuked in the microwave) would have you feeling sluggish for the next couple of days.

That’s where this recipe comes into play.

With quality protein sources and healthy fats, this easy to make bulking nachos recipe containing 589 calories, 43g of protein, 56g of carbs, and 26g of fat per serving will leave your taste buds satisfied without jeopardizing your waistline.
