Are You Ready for Some Football?

Five tips for easy, healthier tailgating parties

It’s official: The real pro football season starts this week. Kick off your tailgating parties with these healthier ideas:
Remember the basics. Don’t forget paper plates, napkins and plenty of ice in the cooler to keep your food cold.
Stick to low-stress recipes. Foods that use simple ingredients and tools will let you spend less time cooking, and more time watching the game.
Make a grocery list and read food labels’ nutrition facts. Advance planning and careful shopping can help you avoid making poor choices in football food.
Choose salt-free snacks. To satisfy your crunchy cravings, slice corn tortillas into wedges, spray with non-stick cooking spray and bake for 20 minutes. For extra flavor, brush with lime juice and sprinkle with your favorite salt-free seasoning mix.
Make food ahead, in individual servings. Pre-cooking and portioning, when possible, makes meals faster and easier to serve—and to clean up. You’ll also be less likely to overeat.
