If you are settling in for two weekends full of NFL playoffs, you'll need the right snacks to sustain all the effort of full days on the couch. Here's a mix of some of the best recipes that balance the traditional with a nod to healthy eating.


What's a party without chips and dip? Fire and Ice Salsa combines the sweetness of watermelon with the bite of peppers and onion.

These Super Bowl Sausage Puffs are easy to make and the perfect poppable snack.

What's a winter weekend without a warming bowl of chili. Use peanut butter for a rich and tasty twist.

You want food that can be prepared ahead and enjoyed all day. Firecracker shrimp sliders with slaw allow you to set out bowls and rolls for your guests so they can help themselves.

Pizza is easy to eat, and vegetable pizza will make you feel just a bit virtuous as you chow down.
