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 no excuses!


Goat Cheese Stuffed Dates with Prosciutto

  • 6 dates, pitted
  • 2 oz goat cheese, whipped
  • 6 slices Prosciutto
  • 1 tablespoon Chile Olive Oil
Open dates, fill each date with about 1 tablespoon goat cheese in each date. Close date and roll with Prosciutto to seal. Stick it with a toothpick to stay. Finish with drizzle of Chile Olive Oil.


Healthy Jalapeño Poppers with Strawberry Balsamic

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. While oven is preheating, place cream cheese and Monterrey jack in standing mixer. Mix on medium speed until fully incorporated. Stuff the seeded jalapenos with the cheese mixture. Drizzle with Balanced Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 5 minutes before placing on serving tray. Drizzle with Strawberry Balsamic.


Peach Balsamic Candied Almonds

In a medium sauce pot, bring Peach Balsamic Reduction and sugar to a simmer. Let simmer 3 minutes. Add almonds and allow simmer for 5 minutes. Pour onto a glass pan to cool. Once cool, break apart and serve.

Do any of these sound like a good substitute for pizza and wings?
