Snack smart on game day.
Whether you tailgate at the stadium before kickoff or invite friends over to watch from the comfort of your living room, one truth is universal — game day is all about the snacks.
For those trying to eat healthier, however, many traditional game day foods should be benched. Many favorites are packed with fat, sodium or sugar, or all three. While these may be fine in moderation, be careful about including too much in your diet.
Fortunately, most tailgate snacks can be swapped for a delicious but more health-conscious substitute. Avoid a fumble with these tips to balance nutrition with flavor and fun.
You don’t even have to give up dessert. Keep the grill fired up and roast fresh fruits like pineapples, strawberries, peaches and mangoes for a delicious smoky-sweet flavor.
