Pizza. Chicken wings. Mini sausages. These are the most common snacks brought to a party, because they easily feed a lot of people and take very little time to prepare. They also make it hard to stick to your health-related resolutions.
Here are four low-prep, healthy snack ideas for a big game party or to consider choosing between meals:
Vegetable Platter with Hummus: Prepare a colorful assortment of fresh vegetables like carrot sticks, cucumber slices, and bell pepper strips. Pair them with a tasty and protein-packed hummus for a satisfying and nutritious snack.
Popcorn with Herbs: Air-popped popcorn is a whole-grain snack that can be made flavorful with the addition of herbs like rosemary, thyme, or a sprinkle of black pepper or garlic powder. It’s a crunchy
and low-calorie option for those who like to munch.
Guacamole with Whole Grain Chips: Mash ripe avocados and mix them with diced tomatoes, onions, lime juice, and cilantro to create a delicious guacamole. Serve with whole-grain tortilla chips for a satisfying snack, rich in healthy fats and fiber.
Fruit Skewers: Make colorful skewers with a variety of fresh fruits like berries, pineapple chunks, and melon balls. These sweet treats are not only visually appealing but also provide natural sugars and essential vitamins.
These snacks offer a balance of nutrients and flavors, ensuring you can enjoy your favorite televised sporting event while making healthier choices.
Be sure to talk with your dietician or physician to know what healthy food choices work for you before
the next big game night.
