Popcorn: Since popcorn is a wholegrain, it contains fiber and healthy phytochemicals so can be a healthy snack. To help with portion control and sharing issues among the fans, give everyone their own popped, 100-calorie bag.
Peanuts: Full of fiber and protein, peanuts will help fill you up before the 7th inning stretch. Buy them in their shells to slow down your consumption and exert some physical activity when cracking each one open. Additional bonus: You’ll also burn some calories after the game cleaning up all the shells that will litter your floor and couch.
Caramel Corn: Well, it’s not exactly Cracker Jacks, but this healthier caramel corn recipe puts a sweet twist on popcorn for less calories and fat per serving. Unfortunately, the toy is also missing but the winning the series will be the prize.
