Health Tip: Pack Healthier Tailgating Snacks

(HealthDay News) -- Tailgating before a sporting event is a fun way to celebrate, but the food is usually packed with fat and calories.

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics offers these tips for enjoying healthier tailgating fare:

  • Serve baked/whole-grain pita chips, carrots or celery with hummus.

  • Make a yogurt-based vegetable dip with fresh cut veggies.

  • Make whole-grain tortilla rollups with black beans, avocado, salsa and low-fat cheese.

  • Dig into a whole-wheat pasta salad tossed with low-fat cheese, olives, cucumbers and low-fat dressing.

  • Pack sandwiches made with whole-grain bread, lean meat, tomato, onion, spinach and low-fat dressing.
