Wounded Warrior Project Can Help Your Wallet and Waist Prepare for the Big Game

By James Herrera - Physical Health & Wellness Director, Wounded Warrior Project

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The biggest event in football is almost upon us, and fans everywhere are getting ready. Couches and big-screen TVs are being positioned perfectly in living rooms, and party plans are being finalized. And when families and friends finally gather to watch the season-ending game, the million-dollar commercials, and the halftime show, they will also feast on snacks. Lots of snacks.    

Last year, Americans spent billions on snack foods and beverages, including:

  • $2.3 billion on alcoholic beverages, including beer, wine, and liquor
  • $500 million on chips,
  • $82 million on chicken wings,
  • and $71 million on cheese snacks.

Not only is that a massive chunk of money, but it's also a ton of calories. To help you stretch some dollars – without stretching your pants – Physical Health and Wellness experts at Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) are sharing some of their favorite homemade snacks. Buying fresh, individual ingredients and making items yourself can save you money in the long run. And it's typically healthier – just like these recipes. Best of all, these snack ideas are the right kind of healthy – they will be good to your waistline without your friends and relatives accusing you of ruining the game. Remember the wise words of Homer Simpson – you don't win friends with salad.
