College football season starts next week! This morning I shared some ways to upgrade your tailgate spread on the health front.
Touchdown Tailgate Dip for your sliced veggies and whole grain pita
Every game day needs a delicious dip. I shared my spinach and artichoke dip! This is made with better-for-you ingredients and is lower in calories and fat than the traditional variety.
A dietitian-approved grilling option
Veggie kabobs are my go-to healthy grilling option. I use a lean protein source which adds staying power to your meal.
Cheers to tailgate season with a red wine punch in lieu of beer
This is a fun gamed beverage, especially if you are a red wine lover! I shared my red wine punch with strawberries and citrus. As a dietitian, I like red wine for its antioxidants.
Upgrade your tailgate snacks
For dessert, I shared chocolate-covered chickpeas. We know chickpeas are a great source of protein and fiber. These satisfy your sweet tooth plus provide benefits.
