10 Healthy Snack Ideas for Your Mayweather/Pacquiao Viewing Party

Throwing a party for the fight—or watching from your couch? Instead of reversing your hard-won workouts with wings and cheese dip, try one of these low-fat recipes.

These flavorful baked chickpeas are a great swap for oil-roasted nuts and a delicious source of fiber and protein.


  • 1 (15-oz) can chickpeas or 1-1/2 cups cooked chickpeas, drained, rinsed, patted dry
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1⁄2 tsp curry powder
  • 1⁄2 tsp red chili flakes (optional)
  • 1⁄4 tsp salt
  • 1⁄4 tsp ground black pepper

Instructions: Preheat the oven to 375°F. In a small bowl, toss the chickpeas with the oil, coriander, curry powder, chili flakes, salt, and pepper. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 45 minutes, or until crisp and slightly browned. Serve warm or allow to cool.
