Tailgating with Simple Truth®

Whole portobello mushrooms

Nothing says tailgating like great food! Football season is in full swing, and tailgating is a great way to bring friends and family together. But how can you try to eat better when it’s so easy to go straight for the junk food staples? You’re in luck! We’ve got a guide to better tailgate eating:

  • Swap out the dogs. Avoid preservative-filled hot dogs and go for Simple Truth™ uncured Beef or Chicken Franks. They’re free from 101 artificial preservatives and ingredients, gluten- and casein-free, and contain no nitrates, nitrites or MSG. Plus, if you want to cut some carbs, enjoy these juicy dogs sans bun!
  • A better burger. Go ahead and throw some Simple Truth™ Meatless Patties on the grill. Made with soy and ancient grains, these burger replacements have 75% less fat than a traditional burger and are cholesterol-free. Top with Simple Truth Organic™ Tomato Ketchup and you have a winning meal!
  • Mushrooms in the end zone. Another great burger replacement is a delicious Portobello mushroom cap. Easily prepared on the grill alongside your other tailgating foods, mushrooms have vitamin D, antioxidants and immune-boosting nutrients. Eating better on game-day has never tasted so good.
  • Don’t sideline the sides. Between chips, potato salads and sweets, all the tailgating extras can add up to a hefty meal. Cut back (while keeping all the flavor) and pair your meal with Simple Truth™ Sweet and Smokey Natural Popped Chips. All the flavor, but free from 101 artificial preservatives and ingredients.
