I’m not a huge sports fan. The Super Bowl has never been my cup of tea. But I love all of the excitement surrounding the day, I get a kick out of some of the ads, and I always love a good excuse to eat a few festive snacks. Here are 10 lighter snacks to consider!

While nachos, chicken wings and creamy blue cheese dip tend to be standard fare while watching the game, I’ve been thinking more and more about healthy snacks that will still give you cause to celebrate without setting those resolutions back ten steps. From kale chips to delicious dips, here are ten ideas to lighten up your Super Bowl spread this year.
