10 Healthy Game-Day Snacks

If you’re a sports fan, you are revving up for the fall season. This year, instead of busting a gut at your next hours-long game-day extravaganza, prepare some of these 10 healthy, mouthwatering snacks.

Chili Chips

Make a batch of Ellie Krieger’s Chili Chips and dip them in a tasty, homemade guac or mango salsa (pictured above).

Prosciutto-Wrapped Crudite

Add a little zing to your vegetables by wrapping them in thin slices of prosciutto.

Smoky Kale Chips

At 60 calories per two cups of chips, you can eat away without the guilt.

Pizza Pockets

For a more filling snack, wrap turkey sausage, arugula and cheese in store-bought pizza dough. To up your intake of whole grains, use whole-wheat dough.

Ham, Swiss and Apple Wraps

Half a wrap is a perfect snack made up of three food groups.

Turkey-Hummus Sliders

Hummus is a delicious condiment, especially when paired with a burger.

Crispy Chickpeas

Instead of munching on the usual trail mix, shake things up with these crunchy baked chickpeas that go beautifully with a cold brew.

Edamame Hummus

Blend edamame with spices to get a killer dip for vegetables like carrots, radishes, bell peppers and cukes.

Mini Meatballs

These babies will satisfy your game-day meat craving without busting your pants buttons.

Muscovado Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies and a tall glass of milk are a perfect combo for watching your favorite game.
