8 Super Easy Super Bowl Paleo Snacks

Super Bowl Roman numeral something is on Sunday (I prefer college football and don't pay too much attention to the NFL), but that doesn't mean you have to lose points (if you're still in the midst of a Paleo Challenge), or just want some clean alternatives for Sunday snacking.

Dry Rub Chicken Wings
Baked in their own skin and using good quality ingredients in your dry rub, this is a tasty alternative to the sugary, chemical-filled wet variety of wings. Here is a dry rub for about two pounds' worth of chicken wings. Cover the wings generously on all sides and pat the wings with your hand to get the rub to stick. Lay them out in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.

Dry Rub Recipe
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon dried oregano
2 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/2 tablespoon cumin
1/2 tablespoon cayenne
4 pinches sea salt
1 tablespoon black pepper

Paleo Deviled Eggs
12 hard boiled eggs
1/2 cup of Paleo Mayo
1 tbsp of dill
Small pinch of sea salt
1 pinch of paprika (per egg half)
Black pepper to taste

Once your eggs are peeled, cut them in half lengthwise. Scoop out all the yolks into a mixing bowl and mash with a fork. Add remaining ingredients (except the paprika) and mix thoroughly with a hand mixer until it is nice and smooth. Fill the egg halves with the mixture and sprinkle each half with a little bit of paprika.

Shrimp and Veggies with Guacamole Dip
Carrots, mixed peppers, broccoli, you name it. It all goes well with a big bowl of guac. I'm a big fan of Avocado's Number Guacamole from Trader Joe's.

Celery sticks with Almond Butter
Simple and effective.

Bacon-Wrapped Anything
Dates, figs, scallops, etc.

Mixed Nuts 
Almonds, walnuts, macadamia, pecans, pistachios, brazil nuts; all of the Raw or Dry Roasted/Unsalted variety. Pour them in a bowl and mix them around. Boom.

Sweet Potato Chips with Cinnamon 
Sub coconut oil for olive oil in this recipe. Add a little nutmeg if you're feeling crazy.

Kale Chips
Great potato chip alternative, but they're very brittle and need to be consumed right out of the oven.
