Clark County Cooperative Extension Office Family and Consumer Science Agent Jennifer Howard shares recipes and tips for great game day get-togethers.
Tailgating doesn't have to mean overtime on fat and calories. There are a few tips we can follow to make your game plan a winner:
— If you choose to indulge in pizza, order it thin crust without cheese and ask for extra veggie toppings.
— Make nachos with multigrain chips, black beans, guacamole, low-fat sour cream and low-fat cheese.
— Round up your party for a group walk at halftime or turn up some music and encourage everyone to dance.
— Serve a fruit and vegetable tray with pita chips instead of high-fat appetizers like wings, chips, and crackers.
— Instead of chicken wings, make chicken fingers from boneless, skinless chicken breasts and bread crumbs and dip in low-fat varieties of barbecue sauce, honey or mustard sauce.
