Gameday Snacks

5 Delicious (and Surprisingly Healthy) Gameday Snacks

Football and food. Food and football. One without the other just seems wrong and a little offensive. And sure, you eat food without football – but can’t we all agree it tastes way better when the game is on? We rest our case.

The problem is: most of those mouthwatering, finger-licking, Sunday snacks and apps tend to skew towards the unhealthier side. Wings. Pizza. Nachos. Chips. Dip. So much yum, but even more calories. Ugh.

Surely we could do better, right? There must be a way to hang with your crew, enjoy the big game, and binge some tasty eats without feeling like a bloated mess come Monday morning? The answer is yes, and we got you covered.

Here are a few of our favorite gameday snacks that are healthy, delicious, and easy to make for your super Sunday get-together. Enjoy!
