When you’re a sports enthusiast, chances are that at some point, you’d want to watch a game right where it’s being played. And who would think of watching a game without some snacks, right? Normally you would think of bringing along some junk food or sweets.

But have you thought that maybe you should eat healthier? Prepare, pack and bring along these delicious items for a good change of pace with your game-watching.

Sandwiches

Sandwiches were originally made as meals on-the-go, and they still serve that purpose to this day. They’re one of the most well-rounded snack items, able to include carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, minerals, and even fats in one yummy package.

One of the simplest recipes would be a cheese sandwich, and you can make it extra special if you buy cheese from shops in Wisconsin. When you pack them, make sure that they’re on top of the other items in your bag or put in a separate container.

Power Food

Usually, when people think healthy snacks, they think of power bars and trail mixes. And why not purchase some and bring those along to your game? Be careful, though, as some bars contain a lot more sugar than you expect.

To be healthier about it, you can make your own trail mix by buying packs of the nuts that you like and then putting them all into one container. You can just take it out of your bag and snack on it while you’re enjoying your game.

Sausages

If you’re the kind of person who likes a little more protein in their diet, then you may want to pack sausages and similar food items. The great part about them is that you don’t have to do much to cook them before packing.

All you have to do is to put them in a big enough thermal bottle, pour in hot water and then close the lid. If you want, you can also eat them sandwich-style and bring along some buns and condiments.

Small Fruits

Who could forget nature’s original snack items, the small fruits? Many of them can be eaten without much preparation. All you have to do is pick them up and bite in. The most you have to do is peel off some skin. You may suffer from a bit of a bulk problem, but that’s nothing compared to the nutrition that you’re getting.

Make sure to bring the harder ones and remember to wash them before packing.

Soup

You’re not always going to have good weather in the games that you’ll go to. Sometimes, you’ll experience rain, and sometimes you’ll be going out in the winter. A great snack that you can pack is good warm soup in a thermal bottle.

It’s up to you if you want a cream-type soup or a light broth. If you wish to something solid with it, you can add in some breadsticks that you can toast yourself.

Of course, you could always purchase a snack from one of the vendors going around, but you might end up with an unsatisfied stomach and an empty wallet. If the added bulk isn’t a problem for you, then you can give these suggestions a try.

You don’t even have to stick to just one either. You can do your best cheering when you’ve had your fill.​
