Healthy Football Snacks the Family Will Love!

Posted Feb 01 2010 2:00am

Here are some really good (and healthy) snacks to eat while watching the Football Game. And no one will ever know they are good for you.

Pita Pocket Pizza


6 each – Pita Pockets ,12 ounces Pizza Sauce, 6 ounces Fat Free Jack Cheese , 6 ounces Fat Free Cheddar Cheese,


1. Place pita pocket on a clean surface

2. Spread two ounces of pizza sauce on each pocket

3. Top with one ounce of FF Jack Cheese and FF Cheddar Cheese

4. Sprinkle Cheese with water

5. Place in 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes

Yield: 6 Servings

Black Bean Dip

Serving Size: 2 Tbsp

1 -15 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed, 1 small can green chilies 1 cup salsa 2 cloves garlic 1/2 tsp cumin Optional: 1/4- 1/2 c cilantro

Blend all ingredients in a food processor. Add salt if needed. *To make fat free flour tortilla chips: Cut a fat free tortilla into eighths and bake in a 375 oven for 10-15 minutes.


Serves 4 Serving size: 4 oz (4 chicken fingers)

4- 4 oz boneless skinless chicken breasts, 3/4 cup eggbeaters or egg whites, 1/4 cup FF salad dressing (honey-mustard, ranch, Italian)

2 cups bread crumbs, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1/2 tsp garlic powder

Trim any fat from the chicken breast and cut each into four strips. Mix the wet ingredients in one small bowl, and the wet ingredients in another. On the counter, line up the chicken breast, egg mixture, breadcrumbs, and a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray.

With one hand dip each piece of chicken in the egg then place into the breadcrumbs. With the other hand put the coated chicken on the sheet tray. (This method keeps your hands from getting all gunked up.)

Bake the chicken at 375 for about 20 minutes.

Have fun and enjoy!
