When going to a tailgate or house party offer to bring a dish, preferably a healthy one. When you bring a healthy option, you know there will be something there for you to eat. Some healthy options include making guacamole or hummus with wheat crackers, buffalo chicken skewers, lettuce wraps, or a vegetable tray with low fat ranch.
If you are going out to watch the game it’s a good idea to know where you’re going beforehand so you can take a quick peek at the menu online. Try to find the healthiest option, so you don’t have to look at the menu when you arrive and your decision doesn’t get swayed. A good calorie saver is to split a meal or appetizer. As always try to avoid fried foods.
To save calories on alcohol avoid sugary beverages like margaritas, pina coladas, and screwdrivers. Lower calorie options include light beer, diet coke with rum, or 4 oz of wine. After you finish your drink you should wait to order your next drink until after you’ve had a full glass of water.
Hope everyone enjoys cheering on their favorite team!
