It’s no secret that football season is a BIG deal in my house. Thursday – Sunday nights during the fall you can find football on somewhere in my home. Sure it’s great to enjoy all the action, but if you mindlessly enjoy #AllTheSnacks you may end the season looking more like a linebacker than the tight end you started the season as! 🙂 Recently I visited NBC Miami with some of my sponsors to talk smart tailgating.

Here are some of my tips:
Instead of the giant 6 foot sub, let’s take down the serving size and use a product you can feel good about serving. Try Applegate’s Mini Italian Subs. I like using Applegate because it’s made from animals that were humanely raised, with no antibiotics and no GMO ingredients.
Next guacamole is a game-day staple and I love it because it’s a nutrient-dense, plant-based food full of good fats, fiber, and folate.
Avocados contain naturally good monounsaturated fat and are cholesterol free.
I’m mom to a 16 month old and I don’t want to leave her out of the gameday fare so I made a baby food avocado and chicken puree.
In fact a Paper published by Nutrients Journal names avocados as an optimal first food for babies due to
- Several factors including nutrient density, texture, consistency, neutral flavor profile.
- Avocados are also higher in key developmental nutrients than other fruits
- Plus they’re a great food source for pregnant lactating women too as they’re so nutrient dense.
Finally let’s not forget hydration. Whether you’re playing your own halftime pick up game or getting in a workout before sometimes you need a premium sports drink and I choose BODYARMOR.
Here’s the many happy first downs and touchdown dances!
