Healthy Game Day Snacks
Don't get us wrong, we love watching football. What we don't love is the greasy, heavy, gut wrenching snacks that go along with it. We needed healthier options on game days and figured you did, too!
So, we came up with some very tasty recipes that bring the flavor, not the Tums. These healthy game day snacks can be made to enjoy at home, or pre-made and packed for a tailgate. Oh, and these recipes require four ingredients or less and all take less than 20 minutes to make...so no excuses!
