1.    The LEAN Vegan Nachos

Who doesn’t love to start their Superbowl Festivities off with a few hearty nachos? Instead of standard tortilla chips, make the swap and try some thinly sliced yams to make your nachos… go to LEAN-chos! One FULL sweet potato contains an average of 100 calories and are packed with nutrients such as Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, and potassium. Also, these sweet potato chips are baked in coconut oil, which is a much leaner choice than a deep fried tortilla chip! 

For the meatless beef portion of the dish, you can use any brand of your choice! For my Bachelor viewing party (when I first made these Lean-chos) I used Gardein Meatless Meat mix. On the other hand, if you’re not a vegan or vegetarian and prefer to use regular meat, you can still keep this dish EXTRA lean by using LEAN ground beef, turkey or chicken! 


This lean approved Vegan Beef Nacho dish is super flexible when it comes to substitutes to make it enjoyable for everyone! Check out the full recipe below, and if you want to cook along with me when I made them for my Bachelor viewing party, click the link HERE:

Chicken Fajitas x Potato skins… what’s not to like? Two of the tastiest dishes with an extra lean twist makes these a LOCK for your Superbowl party. Think, “Tom Brady to Gronk in the endzone” It’s a SURE THING! 

Instead of a traditional potato, we use a half sweet potatoe to add a little touch of leanness to the dish! After hollowing out the sweet potatoes, we fill ‘em up with some lean protein (chicken), tasty veggies (red, yellow and green peppers), a little spice to keep the body burning, and we seal it all in with a sprinkle of mozzarella cheese. Sound appetizing?

Let’s see how we make ‘em:

3.    Cut the sweet potatoes in half and carve out centres, leaving small rim around the outside of each “boat”

4.    Place sweet potato boats on baking sheet covered in parchment paper. Add the bell peppers and onion to the other side of the baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil

5.    Mix the fajita seasoning ingredients together. Season the boats and veggies

6.    Add chicken breast on top of the veggies. Drizzle in olive oil and add additional seasoning
