If you don’t know already, I’m a proud PSU Alum! I have season football tickets and I just love fall in State College.
I’m going to 5 home games and 2 away games this year. I have 3 games under my belt for the fall (2 home and 1 away). Last fall I did quite good monitoring what I was eating and my adult beverages (no beer) (stuck with mixed drinks – Bloody Mary’s etc) (you drink less as you sip more).
This year I decided to attempt at adding some healthy options to my tailgates. On most game days it is breakfast and linner (or lupper) on the grill. The first home game I made breakfast – which is usually an egg sandwich with meat and cheese. This year I made my egg with some spinach added to it. It was delicious. When I’m back up for a game in October – I’ll add more veggies as I won’t be having a breakfast sandwich (see my #SHIFT posts) – so it will have to be an omelet. I’m bummed I didn’t take a picture of my yummy sandwich from the other week.
Onto Linner (Lupper) – I tried at the first home game to try Jack Daniel’s pulled pork sandwiches to mix it up a bit – too sweet – off the menu. So last week when I was up with my Mom we had hamburgers and hot dogs – normal tailgate fare. However, before we left NJ we stopped at a local Italian Deli for some yummy, healthy salads – cucumber, tomato and fresh mozzarella and a grilled veggie salad. Delicious and a hit! They will definately be added for future games.
Any suggestions for other healthy options?
