Healthy tailgating recipes because you always need a little mix of nutritious food within all the drinks and hot dogs!

We all love that slow cooked, pulled pork and ribs smothered in bbq sauce along with chips and that heavenly 7 layer dip at tailgates. But if you’re trying to stay #FreshFitNHealthy, those may not cut it. Hence, my healthy tailgating recipes.

It’s the first college football weekend! And despite having graduated, I somehow ended up in yet ANOTHER college town for my masters in sport nutrition and dietetic internship. So I have to join in the celebration of the first tailgating weekend of the season!

Even despite the fact I ended up in not only another college town..but in the city of our RIVAL COLLEGE as a University of Florida undergraduate, Tallahassee. #GoGators
