Healthy Snacks When Watching Football

Sports Equipment on WhiteDo you and your friends & family LOVE watching sports? I swear that is all that is ever on at our house. Luckily the 4 of us all enjoy sports, it’s kind of in our blood. I played sports growing up and so did my husband. And if you read this blog, you’ll know that we are ALWAYS running around with my son playing soccer and our daughter in cheerleading! The joys of being a parent 🙂 I love sports and I love that the whole family loves them too. It’d make it very hard if one of us was absolutely miserable whenever they were on TV. Even more fun for us is when we are able to have a fun relaxing day watching sports. Sometimes on these days, I love doing a buffet style pot luck that I prepare. It’s so fun putting a bunch of food on the counter and just picking at it whenever we feel like it. Here are some yummy and healthy snacks that you can eat when having people over for a watch party or this could even be used if you are invited to someone’s house to watch a sporting event:

  • Fresh vegetables with hummus. You can make your own hummus using this very easy hummus recipe. Some of our favorite veggie to serve are carrots, celery, cucumbers, grape tomatoes, snap peas, broccoli, and cauliflower.
  • Fresh fruit tray. Slice up a few different fruits and watch them disappear. Anytime we have fruit on the counter it is gone in no time at all. Some of our favorite are watermelon, cantaloupe, grapes, strawberries, and apples.
  • Cheese tray with whole wheat crackers. Find a variety of cheese in your local grocery store and serve it up with whole wheat crackers. Some nice ones to use are gouda, cheddar, mozzarella, etc. Try adding in a cheese too that you’ve never tried along with some of your favorites.
  • Meatballs! They aren’t just for spaghetti or meatball subs. Cook up this recipe for meatballs and they’ll also be gone in no time!

What are some of your favorite healthy snacks? What are you favorite sports to watch? Who are your favorite teams?
