Essentia Water and Game Day

Neutralize Your “Big Game” Menu

Let’s face it. Football Sundays (Thursdays, Saturdays and Mondays) can be taxing on the body, and the “Big Game” can be downright stressful. Rooting for your favorite team, or for your pool numbers to come in, can lead to some serious stress and stomach acid. It also doesn’t help when you add spicy snacks to the mix. A Medical News Today 
study found when a fan’s team is losing they are 16 percent more likely to eat junk food.

 We’re not suggesting you toss out the chili, sliders or guacamole from your buffet. However, here’s a list of some healthy suggestions to mix into your game day menu to help neutralize your digestive juices and nutritiously nosh through the “Big Game.”
1.     Serve up some team-themed fruits and veggies. An apple a day keeps the doctor away so you can give a healthy cheer for your team. It’s also great for memory, reducing stomach acid and more. Try dipping apple slices in caramel and serving them covered with team-colored sprinkles or plating upright-inspired carrot sticks.
2.     Grilled not fried. Fried chicken wings are a game day favorite, but they are also full of fat and calories. Try grilling chicken instead with a delicious rub or marinade.
3.     Have a healthy supply of nuts.
 Peanuts have long graced the counters at every sports bar, but almonds are a delicious and healthy alternative to serve up at your football soiree. Rich in protein and essential fatty acids, almonds have been linked to
promoting good heart health, which you’ll need when your team is pulling out an overtime win!
4.     Offer a different kind of chips and dip. Instead of the traditional tortilla chips and salsa, try serving up hummus and pita chips. Rich in protein, hummus helps fight hunger cravings and balance blood sugar levels, to curb excessive eating that often happens at a football game or party.
5.     Wash down your game day snacks with a healthy helping of high-alkaline, functional water. According to Dr. Ralph E. Holsworth, director of clinical & scientific research for Essentia Water
, an optimally alkaline, high-pH diet that includes functional water can restore the body to a more balanced state. Proper hydration supports ideal pH in the body to balance the digestive tract and protect the stomach lining to reduce bloat. Less bloat leaves room to eat more snacks and fit into last year's jersey. If you’re planning to imbibe, try to have a glass of water for every alcoholic beverage consumed to reduce dehydration risks.
