It's been real, summer, but it's time to face the reality. September is here.
Sure, that means beach and summer Friday season is coming to an end, but it also means football is back in action.
College football starts today, the NFL kicks off in a week and I'm getting excited just thinking about spending eight hours in front of the television watching RedZone on Sundays.
Not only does the NFL's return indicate non-football events will no longer be scheduled on Sunday -- or Monday or Thursday, for that matter -- it also guarantees tailgating season is back with a vengeance.
But just because you have tickets for the game, or you're attending a friend's Sunday Funday, that doesn't mean you have to enlist for the heartburn and indigestion often accompanying football festivities.
It's 2015, people. You have way more options than just a hamburger or a hot dog -- not that there's anything wrong with putting down three brats in the parking lot before kickoff.
Here are 20 healthy tailgate treats that will delight your tastebuds without leaving you feeling sacked come Monday morning.
