I can't believe another season of football has ended. Not sure about your house but we are hardcore cheering on the Falcons. Not because we are Falcon fans but because they are playing that other team. Ahem, anyways, If you are hosting a party, this is the week to prep your heart out. You might have already made a list, checked it twice, and sighed heavily thinking of all the stores you need to go to. And then all the work and hours spent in the kitchen to make said food. What if I told you, you can get big game ready at Whole Foods Market without having to break a sweat or the bank? All you need to do is sit back, relax, and cheer on your team or favorite commercial.

Baked BBQ Ribs
- Baby Back Ribs
- Southwestern Grille Seasoning
- 365 Everyday Value BBQ Sauce
- Use the Southwestern Grille Seasoning as a rub for the ribs. Coating generously.
- Broil the ribs meat side up for 5 mins
- Bake on 300 for 1.5 to 2 hours.
- Add BBQ sauce then bake in oven for an additional 30 mins.
- Serve as is or with more BBQ sauce on the side for dipping.
Dip strawberries in chocolate syrup and allow to harden in refrigerator or freezer. Melt white chocolate (also available at Whole Foods, I already had a stash 😉 ) to use to make the laces.
And that is all the prep work you need to do. High five!
Touchdown! Big Game food is served!
Those ribs tasted as good as they look. And no one is the wiser on those jerk chicken wings. They are made in house, just not this one!
A little bit of kick but nothing that will burn your face off. Add more hot sauce for a fiery taste.
Veggies cut, washed, and ready to go in the bowl.
Messy but tasty. Maybe use a fork to enjoy these!
Now if only Whole Foods Market also offered a cleaning service for after the party!

Argh! We so miss having a Whole Foods close by! Used to shop at them all the time in California, but there are NONE here in Eastern Iowa!
Oh my what a fabulous set up. I’ll be right over for game day. Love the dip totally making that one.
We are not football fans at this house but I love this menu! And whole foods is a favorite, currently we have one located about 45 minutes from our house but ne is being built 10 minutes away- can’t wait!
First off, yes! I am rooting for the Falcons for the exact same reason. LOL
Secondly, yum. It is such a good reminder that game food can be better sourced and less processed. I forget just how much Whole Foods offers. And BTW, those ribs look amazing!
I’m so ready for game day (Go Patriots!) and I plan to have a big spread of food. Your ideas all sound so yummy, especially those cute little strawberries!
I went to Wholefoods for the first time the other day and was shocked not only at the variety of things you could purchase there but I was amazed at how big it was. You can find anything there. That is where I first saw what turmeric root actually looks like not in powder form. Good for you getting organic foods for your party. Looks like you are going to have a great time. Can you save me a plate please?
I am so happy when I am in Whole Foods , that place just knows how to set up and serve! They offer such a great assortment and it all looks and feels so good! I Love your ideas for the game! I hope it is a good one!
I love Whole Foods and the recipes that you shared. Your party set up looks great for a party for a big game.
My husband has been talking about the Superbowl for weeks! Every year we joke about having a party but then we never do. But we enjoy making food to eat together. Definitely going to add to my list now after seeing yours!
I want to try that dip!
I like the Blue Corn Chips and Chicken Dip.
