Healthy Snacks for March Madness

March Madness is here, which means it’s time to bring your “A” game to the snack table. These healthy snacks are the keys to a winning game day spread.

Healthy Swaps

Swap crackers, pretzels and chips for plant-powered snacks. Crispy roasted chickpeas are quick and easy to make and can be seasoned lots of different ways to please everyone in your crowd. Roasted Brussels Sprouts Chips and Tomato Basil Mozzarella Pops are other fan favorites that easily add color to your game day spread.

Tip: Swap chips and pretzels for plant-powered snacks.

Make Ahead

Serve up a heartier, crowd-pleasing dish to round out your game-day snack table. Easy Baked Ziti with Sausage and Baby Kale is definitely more than a snack, but it’s a winner for feeding everyone on your team. Make it ahead so you can enjoy the game with your guests. For a no-fork dish, try Basil Pesto Pizza.
