5 snacks for watching the World Cup on TV… and one recipe for something sweet!

The World Cup is a time of great sport emotions but also get-togethers – after all, one of the best things about football is how it connects people.

When you sit with your family or friends in front of the TV to barrack for your team, you will certainly … get hungry in no time! Supporting does require a lot of energy 🙂

But forget the unhealthy and worthless crisps, salted nuts and sticks – you don’t want to poison yourself and the guests 😉

I have prepared 5 recipes, specially for the World Cup, for yummy, savoury snacks and one extra recipe for something sweet 😉

Are you on a diet and trying to keep fit (for example with my Diet & Training by Ann application)? You can try these snacks without feeling guilty 😉

The recipes serve 4, so take it easy, there’s plenty for everyone. But I warn you… be quick for they disappear in the blink of an eye!
