12 HEALTHIER IDEAS FOR GAME DAY EATS

Healthy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Apple Cabbage Slaw / momskitchenhandbookEach October Mr. Mom’s Kitchen makes a pilgrimage to the great state of Texas for the annual match up of the Oklahoma Sooners against the Texas Longhorns. He eats very bad food, gets a sunburn, loses his voice, and judging from his breath when he arrives home, takes in his weight in cheap beer.

This year is different: He’s not making the trek Southeast for the big event, but staying local. I imagine he will still put back a few beers, will likely sneak Doritos into my living room, and will certainly hoop and holler himself voiceless. But I’m gathering up some of my favorite healthier “football food” recipes that fill the bill for good eats, without the post-party heartburn.

What do you cook up on game day?

    I was foolish to read this post when we haven’t had dinner yet. It all sounds SO good. We don’t watch football, so we’ll have to have all this yummy stuff just because…

    I don’t watch football, either, Anne…so it’s all about the eats for me!

    My mom is a HUGE football fan but only has chips and onion dip when she watches her games. I will have to introduce her to some of these ideas to vary her menu up a little.
