5 Football GameDay Snacks

One of the best things about Fall weekends are football games.Tonight the New England Patriots take on the Buffalo Bills. I can’t stand either team, but anytime Rex Ryan faces the Patriots I can’t help but watch. It should be a good game.  Nothing compliments a good gamesbetter than bar food and beer. Unfortunately, chiseled abs and ripped biceps are not the by product of Gameday snacks.

Note: Ignore all the skinny words. Replace them in your mind with strong. 

Here are my Top 5 GameDay Snacks

Baked Buffalo Chicken Nuggets from Skinny Taste

Baked Buffalo Chicken Nuggets – healthy baked chicken nuggets with a touch of heat!

This is probably my favorite recipe off skinny taste. I could eat these every weekend. 10 Nuggets = 5 points. I’ll take 20!

Buffalo Chicken Quesadilla from Recipe Diaries

This bad boy is 6 points. I like to dip this in some low fat ranch for an additional 1 to 2 points. 

Skinny Hot Wings from Skinny Mom 

Skinny Hot Wings | Skinny Mom | Where Moms Get The Skinny On Healthy Living:

Sometimes you just need some wings. 5 wings at 6 points is a win on any given Sunday.

Mozzarrella Sticks from Laloosh

Weight Watchers Mozzarella Sticks

I love some gooey mozzarella sticks without the greasiness.  These are on the higher point side at 2 sticks for 4 points but a lot better than the real deal.

Skinny Taco Dip from Skinny Taste

I make this dip for every party!

Warning: Consumption of entire dish is possible. Steady does it or you will blow all of your beer points. 2 points for 1/24th pan. Go ahead and double up. 

Speaking of beer points, what’s your go to choice?

Mac N Cheese Please! A quick meal plan

No one likes being on a diet. Mainly because it means there is a long list of foods we enjoy that we can no longer eat. What I have learned most on Weight Watchers is how to structure meals so that I can enjoy the foods I love. If I can eat mac & cheese on a diet, I can probably stick with it. Here’s how you can do it too.
