This -or- That: Tailgate Food for the Big Game


big-game-tailgate-food-football-party-foodI don’t need an excuse to cook – but in case I did, there’s a big championship football game coming up.


Game time snacks are not always of the healthy kind, and that’s okay sometimes. But when I started experiencing options for healthier snacking, I found there are some viable alternatives that keep the whole family happy (even if their team isn’t winning!)


To keep things interesting I’ve gathered some of the most popular game day indulgences along with some healthier option for that same snack. My hope is that even swapping one of these for the healthier option will make you, and your critics, excited to try more next time!


This – or – That | The Big Game Edition


Mozzarella Sticks  – or –  Baked Mozzarella Sticks

Buffalo Chicken Dip  – or –  Skinny Buffalo Chicken Dip
