March Madness Snacks!
March is a great month. In addition to the sunlight, there will be an NCAA basketball tournament to watch. As we can all agree, eating when watching something interesting on TV is so much fun. Instead of eating pizza, and other junk food, this article suggests alternative recipes that are healthier. As March is National Nutrition Month, you can do yourself a favor by checking diet ideas on Nashua Nutrition site. For now, here are our best snack recipes for March.
- 16 Toasted flatbread chips
These are just what you need when enjoying any NCAA game. If you eat just eight chips, you will gain 90 calories only. Also, these flatbread chips provide up to seven grams of fiber and seven grams of proteins. Fiber promotes your digestion, while protein boosts your energy levels.
- Pizza cutter
- Carrington Farms Coconut Oil Cooking Spray
- One Package Foldit 5 Grain Flax Artisan Flatbread.
- Aluminum baking sheet.
- Sea salt
- Preheat your oven up to 375 degrees F.
- Tear down your flatbreads into two equal halves. With your pizza cutter, slice the two halves to come up with four pieces.
- Place these on the baking sheet and then cover them lightly with cooking spray.
- Turn the pieces over and spray lightly. If you need salt, add and bake for twelve minutes.
A serving of Broccoli and Mozzarella recipe
Broccoli is among the best vegetables to eat, as shown on Nashua Nutrition. It has plenty of vitamins and minerals needed by the body to stay healthy. As well, the recipe uses olive oil, which is one of the healthiest whole oils available.
- A full cup of shredded broccoli slaw
- A whole cup of skim mozzarella cheese
- An eighth-inch whole-wheat tortilla.
- A tablespoon of olive oil.
- Optional mango or traditional tomato salsas for garnishing
- Reduced-fat sour cream for garnishing, though optional.
- Lay your whole wheat tortilla
- Divide your cheese and broccoli over 1 half and fold it in half.
- Place a big skillet on the stove and turn on the heat to a medium level.
- Add some olive oil and wait till it melts to swirl the skillet so that oil can cover the whole bottom.
- Place the filled tortilla in the hot skillet and let it cook until the underside is golden brown.
- Turn the tortilla and let it cook until all the cheese melts and the undersides are well-browned.
- Top with your preferred garnish and serve.
A Slimmed down Ice Cream Sandwich is a great one too. You just need a cup of light cool whip and a sheet of chocolate graham cracker that is split in half. After softening the light cool whip, scoop it amid your chocolate graham cracker and keep it in the freezer for an hour. Other great recipes from brands like healthsmart you could make before any NCAA game starts can be found on the Nashua Nutrition website.
