Wahoo! It’s time for tailgating! I want to help you “trim your tailgate” with 3 healthy tailgating tips. I’m also super excited to be working with LaCroix Sparkling Water and their fun “Trim Your Tailgate” campaign as I’ve been recommending their water to my clients for years. I got to do a photoshoot and will be appearing in a Shape Ad next month! I will also be sharing some yummy tailgating recipes from my upcoming book, The Pinterest Diet: How to Pin Your Way Thin!


Strawberry Salsa with LaCroix Sparkling Water

Strawberry Salsa Recipe (just 4 ingredients) with LaCroix 100% Natural Sparkling Water

Here are my 3 tips for healthy tailgating!

1. Lighten up your apps: Instead of going heavy with cheese sauce and regular tortilla chips swap it out for a fruit salsa and whole wheat cinnamon crisps made from whole wheat pita bread. My Strawberry Salsa recipe will save you a whopping 170 calories.

2. Trim your drink calories: Instead of loading up on high calorie drinks and alcohol make a swap for LaCroix Sparkling Water. LaCroix is 100% natural sparkling water with a hint of pure fruit flavor. Calorie, sweetener  and sodium free, LaCroix is the perfect mixer and healthy alternative to sodas.

3. Grill your protein: Choose a lean, high quality protein that will help you stay satisfied and grill it. My top choices for grilling include: lean beef, chicken breasts, pork tenderloin, salmon and shrimp.
