veggies and ranch dressing would be beach friendly,
Low fat cheese on cucumber wheels instead of crackers

Scallops wrapped in turkey bacon and broiled would be nice drizzed with a little low fat mayo mixed with chili sauce to kick it up.

A hearty bowl of chili ( recipe in SBD recipe thread) would be great for superbowl munching as well.

Since I am from New England... GO PATRIOTS !!! :D

Lol -- and here i am rooting for the Birds!! :)

I am going to make me some Turkey Chili and watch it tonight by myself with some fresh brewed tea (with Splenda and Lemon) and cheese on cucumber wheels! Great Idea and I have half a cuke left and some 50% fat free Vermont cheddar!
