9 Healthy Snack Ideas for March Madness Parties

Getting ready to watch the NCAA tournament? Avoid a Freshman 15 relapse with these smart swaps for typically fatty fare.

A cup of traditional 7-layer dip with full-fat sour cream and cheese, refried beans, ground beef, and guacamole weighs in at about 700 calories and 80 grams of fat. Yikes. So cut that almost in half by making your dip using these swaps: reduced-fat sour cream mixed with Greek yogurt for the sour cream; Laughing Cow cheese for the cream cheese; black beans for refried beans; and homemade guacamole for the store-bought kind. Pile lots of salsa, freshly chopped lettuce, vegetables, and 1/3 cup of reduced-fat shredded cheddar on top, instead simply slathering it in a seventh layer of heavy cheese.
