As Terrell Owens famously said when signing with the Dallas Cowboys in 2006, “Get your popcorn ready!” This year, the NFL legend looked to Thrive Market to get his popcorn—and other nutritious snacks—ready for the big game.
When T.O. isn’t playing in the biggest football game of the season, he’s watching it, just like 100 million other viewers. Only difference? He’s not turning game-day into cheat-day. Here’s an exclusive peek at the relatively guilt-free treats he’ll be snacking on as he cheers on the Panthers this Sunday (sorry, Broncos!).
T.O. won’t be grabbing popcorn from the fans and dumping it over his helmet (been there, done that) after scoring, but he’ll definitely be popping Arrowhead Mills Organic Kernels while watching the game at home.
Oatmeal animal cookies
What? Six-foot-three NFL players can enjoy adorable little animals cookies, too! T.O. loves oatmeal, so these 100-percent non-GMO Snackimals from Barbara’s Bakery are a satisfying go-to.
Chocolate super cookies
While he admits he’s not the biggest chocolate fan, T.O. does appreciate a good cookie, especially if they’re made with cacao, sweet coconut, and fiber-rich sprouted sesame seeds like Go Raw’s Choco Crunch bites.
Sweet potato tortilla chips
To satisfy your chip craving without resorting to junk, go with a sweet potato alternative, says T.O. Late July’s addictive multigrain crisps are loaded with 100-percent whole grains (18 grams per serving) and have a naturally sweet, lightly salted flavor.
Sea salt potato chips
If regular potato chips are more your jam, T.O. suggests reaching for a bag of Kettle Brand Chips. They’re a better alternative because they’re made with all-natural, organic ingredients and seasoned with fresh sea salt.
