A Healthier March Madness


Got plans for the big games this weekend? Sports and unhealthy snacks usually go hand in hand, but they don’t have to! Most snack foods are high in calories, saturated fat, and sodium. And face it, it’s easy to overeat these salty, fatty foods when the game’s on. Try these substitutions to lighten up your gametime fare while cheering your team to victory.



Instead of this:                                                                             Try this:   

Sour cream, cheese, and mayo in your dips                           Reduced-fat versions of these ingredients

Fried chicken wings                                                                     Baked chicken strips

Crackers, chips, and pita chips                                                  Vegetable dippers

Queso dip                                                                                        Fresh guacamole

Regular pretzels                                                                            Whole wheat pretzels
