Healthy Recipe Options for Your College Basketball Party
By guest blogger Roberto Reyes
The best thing about February being the shortest month of the year is that we can get to March that much faster. This means a whole month of filling out brackets, binge watching college basketball and attending viewing parties. Much like the Super Bowl, the college basketball tournament held in March has become a lot like a holiday for many sports fans. And like all good holidays, food is a big part of the celebration. However, this does not mean you have to indulge on pizza and beer all month long.
Here are a few healthy alternatives to some traditional party classics.
