Make Nutritious Snacking Choices on the Go
Stadiums and Concert ArenasBest pick: Peanuts in the shell. You’ll get some protein and healthy monounsaturated fat, without extra fat from oil-roasting. Plus, shelling the peanuts slows you down, which means you’ll realize you’re full before you eat too much, says registered dietitian Keri Glassman. Just keep portion size in mind and aim to stick to a one-ounce serving, or 20 whole peanuts (with each shell containing two nuts).
Another good option: A hot dog. “If you’re going to have one, this is the place to do it. Stadium dogs are usually all beef and higher in quality than ones bought on the street,” says registered dietitian Sarah Krieger. Make sure you choose regular size over jumbo, and opt for ketchup or tangy mustard instead of chili or some other fatty topping.
Worst pick: Nachos with melted cheese. The only thing more frightening than the fluorescent orange of this concession-stand staple is the fat and calorie count: 350 calories and 19 grams of fat per six- to eight-chip serving. Not to mention the high sodium content. And let’s be honest: Who stops at eight chips?
