Perhaps you've seen the SNL comedy skit, "Bill Swerkski's Superfans," in which Chris Farley and John Goodman reminisce about prior 
heart attacks while fawning over their beloved Bears.

Unfortunately, there’s an element of truth to this sports fan stereotype, as the ever-expanding waistlines of Americans make self-evident. It’s also true of the type of game day munchies served in sports bars and family dens across the country.

However, there are healthy alternatives to large dollops of cream cheese, sour cream and deep-fried foods — and they don't have to come with a side order of heart 
disease. (The World's Best Vegan Guacamole pictured at left is a great example.)

For the sports TV munchies, try these five healthier game day alternatives.
