Footy finals are here and all over Australia and New Zealand, people will be changing their routines to make sure they can watch their favourite teams. Let’s not get into the merits (or otherwise) of the different codes: the thing they all have in common for spectators is the practice of eating food that doesn’t help you move toward your health and wellness goals.
Naturally when it’s cold you want some warming food, especially if you’re braving the elements as a spectator. Whether it’s pies or hot dogs or pizza or chips, and whether it’s washed down by beer or soft drinks or a hot coffee, footy food is hardly healthy food.
You can make a choice, of course, about whether to just chow down on typical footy food, but if you’d prefer to both enjoy the game and look after your body, you may need to do a little pre-game preparation.
So how can you enjoy your footy finals traditions and still keep your weight and wellness goals on-track? Naturally the answer will be different if you’re watching the game on TV than if you’re going to the local game or attending at a major stadium, but there are definitely some ideas to adopt.
These are just a few simple ideas that will allow you to follow your healthy plans while still enjoying the game. What other ideas do you have?
