What a wonderful Monday! Both of my teams won yesterday, and from what it sounds like, many of yours did as well! It’s awesome that I have so many fellow football readers. I promise, this is still a healthy living blog, despite my tendency to ramble about game day.
Let’s hit up the eats, shall we?
My family was thoughtful enough to put together a whole spread of healthified munchies – whole wheat pretzel twists with hummus, chips and natural salsa, kalamata olives, strawberries and grapes, granola, and sliced avocados and tomatoes.
We finally got to try Terra exotic vegetable chips – they were absolutely fabulous! Very crispy and flavorful – my only gripe was that they were on the smaller side. I need larger vehicles to get more hummus into my belly!
I’m all about this Harvest’s Best Granola – it’s packing cranberries, pepitas, cashews, almonds, maple syrup, and NO crappy additives! Sweet deal 🙂
Oh oops, how did some of the strawberries get dipped in chocolate? Perhaps they just accidentally fell into a pot of warmed Ghiaradelli chips? Yes yes, that must be it. Mystery solved 😉
Side tidbit: If you eat a chocolate covered crackberry from the top down (twisting off the leaves first, of course), you avoid breaking the chocolate casing into pieces that inevitably fall into your lap.

My grandmother outdid herself with dinner as well: roasted chicken and cheese/bacon pizzas for the meat-eaters, sauteed string beans and cheeseless veggie pizzas for my mum and I…
As well as a mayo-free potato salad (if I can twist her arm for the recipe, would any of you be interested in me posting it?) and a chilled pasta of whole wheat noodles, olive oil, basil, and stewed tomatoes.
That’s my kind of game day food.
What are your favorite healthy dishes or snacks for tailgating or sports parties? For all my football ladies, how did your team fare yesterday?
