It has started! Football, Tailgating, Funday Sunday!! And sometimes even Monday’s & Thursdays!
Ever since we became season ticket holders it’s been a whole family affair! We were reminiscing about the days Veronica at 3 yrs old would go to the games in her cheerleader uniform with pom pom’s and all. Now she wears her Sanchez jersey and plays football in the parking lot!
Packing our cooler and preparing our snacks got me thinking. Is it really necessary to eat so un-healthy during these football outings?? Must we load up on the greasy grilling, cheesy nachos & fries, subs, chips, beer & more…… Of course Michael, my husband thinks so but when I packed my cooler and gave him no choice he realized it doesn’t have to be.
I am going to give you a peak into what you may find in my Gomez Gang Green Cooler on any given Sunday so that you too can hopefully think about what it is you are eating before & while you are enjoying your fave game. It really isn’t necessary to consume 5000 calories and hundreds of grams of fat in one day!!
• Turkey Sandwiches or Turkey/Lean beef Burgers if we’re grilling
• Low sodium ham, part skim mozz cheese, & roasted peppers on whole grain bread/Panini
• Chicken sausages for the grill with peppers & onions
• Cut up fruit & veggies with my honeylicious dip
• Low Fat Cabot Cheddar Cheese & Crackers
• Pita Chips
• Soy Chips
• My yummy homemade Guacamole & Salsa
• My yummy Salmon Salad
• Water bottles
• Juice for the kids
• Light Beer ~ I am human after all
Don’t let a fun day ruin your diet and damage your health. Unfortunately the stats aren’t getting any better. Diabetes is on the rise and obesity is killing. Both can be reversed with a little dedication and smart choices! Make today your day to make those right choices.
Have a great one! AND GO JETS!! :-) Enjoy the Journey!
