6 Totally Guilt-Free Awards Show Snacks

When it comes to healthy snacks for those marathon shows, you want small bites you can eat all night long that are easy to share. These are my top picks for food that will keep you looking red carpet-ready (just in case).


Grilled chicken, beef, shrimp or pork skewers of deliciousness will help you stay on track! Skip the peanut sauce if you candone right, theres enough flavor to satisfy your cravings. Bonus points if you eat the shredded cabbage theyre sitting on.


Meatballs just might be the perfect awards show snackthey get better the longer they sit in the marinara. Look for 90% or leaner beef, turkey, chicken, or pork, and use them as a vehicle for vegetables and seasoning. Adding tons of garlic, zucchini, pesto, or ginger can boost both flavor and nutrition.

Spring Rolls

Whip up Vietnamese Spring Rolls instead of a giant sandwich. Theyre light and fresh, and since I've seen them next to Buffalo wings and cheese fries on bar menus, theyre legit snacking fare as far as I'm concerned.


Want to snack but dont want real food? Popcorn popped in coconut oil and just a little sea salt is the best.


Peanuts in the shell are quiet heroes. Taking the time to crack them open slows you down and helps you register feeling satisfied earlier.

Salsa and Guacamole

Stick to six to eight tortilla chips, as well as carrots and celery. And try to keep your serving of guac to a tablespoon by stretching it out. Let those veggies fill you up!
