Hello! Hello!

Ever since I went to college at the University of Florida I’ve been a football fan.  I didn’t grow up watching football, but going to a school where it’s so much a part of the culture it just sucks you in. I enjoy watching the games over the weekend and the Hubs and I usually watch the Gators on Saturday and his pro team, the Steelers, on Sunday.  

As I mentioned last week, watching the games is fun, but the real joy for me lies in having a great game day spread. Whether it’s pizza and nachos or going all out with some of these amazing vegetarian healthy game day snacks, the food is really the star of the football show.  These great recipes can get you started for this football season by recreating some of game day favorites in a healthier package.

All of these recipes are healthy, delicious and vegetarian and some of them are vegan. Mix and  match for your own perfect healthy game day spread.

    There are so many recipes I want to make! The baked potato soup is really calling to me since I love soup in the fall as the weather starts getting colder.

    This blog today made me wonder if you think that
    you will do anymore segments on WLOS like you
    did a few weeks ago for the start of school.
    Do you have any desire to do so and have you
    heard back from them that they would like you to
    do so ?
