While football and food often go hand-in-hand, you don’t have to throw away your health goals just because your favorite team is playing. Make it a healthier game day with more nutritious dips and snack dishes or by substituting sliced veggies for chips and pretzels.
For your next game day, try this tasty fire roasted red pepper hummus. It will keep you energized throughout the game so you’re up and cheering for the team and not ready for a nap at halftime.
