Soon after the school year gets in full swing, another major fall event approaches...
In our house, fall football equates to a holiday season.
The “guest book” at our wedding. No worries, there was a similarly awesome Univ of Alabama logo on the back for the boy.

Toss in an absurd amount of travel to games and you'll easily see where our interests lie.
So what does this all mean in relation to health and fitness? It means I have to be more creative in my journey to be healthy and fit. Why? Because tailgate foods are perhaps the least healthy known to man (err…fan) – and often the most delicious. Who doesn’t love chips with 7-layer dip, brightly colored cookies, and (my personal favorite) buffalo wings.
I have a love affair with Buffalo Wings. I’ve even had the hubs take me to a sports bar for multiple Valentines Days and romantic occasions (when I was told to choose any restaurant I wanted) for some spicy NY lovin.
So of course I felt the need to offer you a healthy gameday solution for this tailgate delicacy, in preparation for opening weekend.
