The cool, crisp fall weather means it’s football season and time to tailgate! Gathering with friends, family, and fellow gridiron fans before the big game is a time-honored tradition for many people. In fact, a University of Minnesota study found 18% of fans tailgate before a sporting event. Whether it’s a college or professional football tailgate party, one thing is for sure—there will be a lot of food and drinks you won’t want to pass up. From barbecue and chicken wings to burgers and hot dogs to salty snacks and cold beer, a tailgate spread can be an elaborate and calorie-dense event.
Eating healthy at a tailgate may seem impossible, but you can have your snacks and be healthy too. As you plan your next parking lot party before your team takes the field, here are a few tips for creating a healthier tailgate spread.
Tailgating is about bringing people together who love the game and want to socialize with friends and family over good food and drinks.
