Unrefined Tailgating

Nothing says American tradition quite like Tailgating for Collegiate or Professional football. This year our son started football and even as young as pee wee leagues you can find fans getting excited to gear up for a minimum of three hours of football fun. Tailgating food is not always consider the healthiest and therefore needs a little tweaking when it comes to unrefined living. 

Here are 5 top picks for refined living: 
1. Guacamole- mash up a few ripe avocados, squeeze a half a lemon and add salt and pepper to taste. Dip your favorite chopped vegetables such as broccoli, carrots, red peppers, cauliflower. 

2. Skewered thinly cut chicken strips with cherry tomatoes and onion. Marinate the chicken overnight in balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper

3. Salad on a stick: Layer chopped romaine lettuce, quartered tomatoes, carrot slices or coins, red pepper slices and cucumbers. Dip in oil and vinegar. 

4. Grilled portabello mushrooms with goat cheese. 

5. Grilled stuffed peppers. Stuff with black beans, cheese and cooked rice or cooked quinoa and garbanzo beans.
