Football season means one thing: tailgate parties. We created this guide to healthy tailgating to help you stay in shape while surrounded by nachos, burgers, and beer. We've got you covered from healthy grilling tips and chip-and-dip recipes to even a low-fat bacon melt recipe (yes, it exists).

How to Have a Healthy Tailgate Party

Baseball and apple pie are integral pieces of traditional Americana, but when it comes to sports, you won't find a more rabble-rousing group (excluding, perhaps, Red Sox devotees) than football fans. And why not? Whether it's college or pro season, everyone's got their allegiances. The proof is on their DVR or in the 20 bucks they sunk into the office Super Bowl pool.

But the best part? Tailgating.

You don't need to know a snap from a lateral, the difference between a running back and a tight end, or how a two-point conversion works. All you need to do is show up in the parking lot with a side dish or a six-pack and get ready for some hatch-backed grilling. Thankfully, FITNESS has got you covered with lighter grill fare and snacking options, so you won't feel the need to turn down a helping of nachos. And as for the beer? Surprise -- it's actually (sort of) good for you.


Consider this tailgate party your official fitness kickoff. We'll be rooting for you!
