5 Healthy Game Time Snacks to Fuel Victory

If you’re hosting people to watch the game and can’t bring yourself to fuss about in the kitchen, but still want to offer an impressive selection of nourishing snacks while you watch England win (hopefully), then this list should make things easier:

  1. Seaweed Crisps

Abakus Seaweed Crisps are packed with fibre, iodine and vitamin B12. This means your guests will have the energy to cheer on England (or heaven forbid, another team) while having the brain power to discuss potential tactics at half time. They come in 4 flavours: Sea Salted, Salt & Vinegar, Cheese and Sweet Chili - there’s a flavour for everyone!

  1. Hummus and carrots

…and cucumber and sweet peppers and… We could never sneer at the simple joy of a crudité board. Healthy, fresh and 100% plant based, a tray of veggie sticks and hummus looks impressive and takes barely any time to prep, it doesn’t leave you feeling heavy and the crunch could be a great way for combatting nerves if the game results in a shootout. Make crudité cups, where everyone gets their own if you’re worried about sticking to guidelines.

  1. Edamame

If you’re hosting football fans who are particularly antsy, these little pods of goodness are a great distraction and are eaten by gently chewing on the pod to eat the beans inside. Although they have only become trendy in the Western world over the last decade, have really been a staple in Japanese culture for millennia. They are packed with plant protein and take barely any prep, simply boil them or stick them in your microwave before serving them with a sprinkle of sea salt or soy sauce.

  1. Peanut Butter and Banana Bites

Slice your banana into disks, spread an even layer of peanut butter across all of them, et voila! It’s up to you whether you want to freeze them or not, this will make them firmer, resulting an almost ice cream-like texture. These are the perfect pick-me-up when morale is low, bring them out at the 80 minute mark and watch the mood lift.

  1. Make your own trail mix

Customising your own trail mix means you don’t have to sit there and pick out raisins if you don’t like bloody raisins! Pick five or six of our favourite components, add your flavourings of choice and bake the bits that need baking. Who says you can’t mix cinnamon coated chickpeas and dark chocolate drops? You can and you should. This is a treat even the most biased of referees would love!
