Healthier Game Day Snacks

By: Mollie Catherine Bohlander

We get it, you’re always on a diet.  Why does it always seem like it’s so hard to lose the weight but so easy to gain it all back?  Sometimes it’s so difficult to restrain yourself from eating the foods you love, especially when this time of year is all about congregating over fattening food that completely maxes out your daily Weight Watchers points.  That’s why we’re here to help you out.  These game day snacks are slightly healthier versions of your football favorites and still taste amazing.  (Trust me, I feasted on these snacks the second I was done taking the pictures!)  So don’t stress, because we’re totally looking out for your waistline.
