Super Bowl Sunday is here at last. Maybe you’re routing for Peyton Manning, or maybe you’d like to see Cam Newton dabbing in the end zone. Perhaps you’re only watching Beyonce at half-time or just tuning in for the commercials. No matter your reason for watching the NFL Super Bowl 50 this Sunday, one thing is certain: you won’t be eating acai bowls or sipping on green juice. Super Bowl snacks are just part of the game, and while they might not be healthiest things for you, they’re an American tradition. That being said, with just a few tweaks, your snacks can be at least a little better for you. Here’s 5 tasty Super Bowl snacks that won’t completely fumble your diet.
