10 Healthier Tailgate Recipes

Things are starting to get pretty heated up around here. No, I’m not talking about any household feuding (that’s pretty much a given), or any hot cooking contests – I’m talking football and tailgating! We’re Notre Dame alums, so no matter what we’re doing on Saturday, we have to be in front of the TV at game time -there’s not really an option there. My boy is down at Clemson, so sometimes we have to double screen the TV on Saturdays, and then of course there’s Sunday football.

Sure the games are fun, but if you’re anything like me, the best part of football is the tailgating. It can rank right up there with holiday feast planning and eating, but whatever you do, don’t let it be an excuse to fill up on junk and pack on the pounds. Keep it on the lighter side with these 10 Healthier Tailgate Recipes that will score major points with your team!
