I can’t believe the Superbowl is only days away! I grew up in the South, where every friday night everyone would come together to watch the big high school football game. Needless to say, I’ve had my fair share of tailgating and concession stand snacks.

This year, I’m trying to keep it on the healthier side. So I gathered up some healthier (but still really tasty) recipes of some of my favorite gameday snacks. Think of it as a positive twist on tradition!
