Healthy Snacks for Soccer-watching


Share the article

There comes a time about every four years that people around the world go about their lives like zombies. They are half-asleep constantly and have a hard time focusing on work or school. The only “cure” is to sit them down in front of the TV, and let them watch the most anticipated sports events live!

Apart from sleep-depriving, getting into the international soccer craze is also a potential health hazard because of the unhealthy snacks we usually eat while enjoying the match. Why not replace the chips, fried chickens and fizzy soft drinks with healthy snacks for a change? Below are two easy-to-prepare healthy recipes:


Detox water


  • 200ml water
  • 2 limes
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 small pineapple
  • Parsley leaves (optional)


  1. Cut lemon and pineapple into wedges.
  2. Squeeze lime juice. Add to water.
  3. Add lemon and pineapple wedges. Add parsley leaves (optional).
  4. Stir well.

  • ¼ cup sesame seeds
  • 3 tablespoons chia seeds
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup unsalted peanut butter
  • ½ cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Place oats, hemp seeds, almonds, sesame seeds, chia seeds, salt, and cinnamon in bowl. Mix well.
