It’s time for another Healthy Tailgate, sponsored by Arnold Bread!  It is our homecoming game.


November 7, 2009 Tailgate Menu


  • Entree:  Grilled breakfast pizza with eggs, hashbrowns, and veggies on a Boboli whole wheat pizza crust.


  • Side Dish:  Vegetarian baked beans


  • Side Dish:  Fruit Salad


Yes, we’re making breakfast at this tailgate.  After all, the game begins at 12:00 PM.  I have mixed feelings about day games because it’s REALLY hot in Miami, no matter what the time of year.  But, we get home at a decent hour….


P.S – Lisette and Danny are sporadic coffee drinkers only, and I cannot locate coffee in their cupboards.  Nooooooooooooo! :(  Time for a Starbucks run.

    Hooray for coffee! Can’t start my day without it…And I LOVE baked beans 🙂 I like to make them in the oven with big lima beans, tomato sauce, and maple syrup.

    Enjoy the tail gate + game!

  • Leah @ Simply fabulous November 7, 2009, 10:28 am

    Hope you find a Starbucks 😀 I can’t imagine starting ANYDAY without a coffee! <–addict. Have fun tailgating!! 😀

  • Bernadette November 7, 2009, 10:35 am

    Gotta have coffee!!! To me that’s non negotiable!

    I wanted to give you a tip for your camera. Something I do that works for me (and I’m NO professional) when I’m photographing in an outdoor setting (like your tailgate party) I will put my setting on ‘sports’ it looks like a green runner on your dial on top of the camera… anyway on that setting your shutter clicks fast. I like it because sometimes when people are moving you miss the shot, but because it takes more than one at a time I usually will get some good ones. You’ll end up with more that you don’t use but in the end I end up with more useable ones than if I didn’t use that setting… and deleting pics is one of the perks to using digital anyway right??

    Have a great day at the game!

    • caitlin November 7, 2009, 7:05 pm

      awesome tip – thank you!

  • Cynthia (It All Changes) November 7, 2009, 10:48 am

    I keep coffee on hand for guests but I don’t know if it is any good. I’m a once in a blue moon Starbucks drinker. More fun that way.

  • Evan Thomas November 7, 2009, 11:42 am

    Your tailgates always sound like the best way to enjoy the game

  • Julie November 7, 2009, 11:52 am

    The breakfast pizza sounds good! I hope you have mimosa’s and bloody mary’s as sides too 😉

  • Joelle (The Pancake Girl) November 7, 2009, 1:53 pm

    Breakfast pizza?! YUM!

  • Angi November 7, 2009, 2:08 pm

    Sounds yummy – breakfast pizza! At least you aren’t stuffed with greasy food for the game! (I hate greasy food in the sports arenas…)

  • Jenna November 7, 2009, 2:39 pm

    that is a great idea having a breakfast tailgate 🙂

  • Nikka @ HealthfulGirl November 7, 2009, 2:57 pm

    Breakfast and football….great combination! I love the menu!

  • D November 7, 2009, 3:29 pm

    Hi! Do you still do strength training moves every morning? do you noticed a difference when you do them regularly? I used to do 30 day shred all the time but now I’m back at school I can’t do it. Im able to do body-weight exercises (pushups, crunches, etc) in my room, but I never feel like it will make a difference!

    • caitlin November 7, 2009, 7:05 pm

      i just do sit ups and push ups regularly – i think it makes a HUGE difference.

  • D November 7, 2009, 3:30 pm

    Also, where are going in England in December?! I live in Manchester and have a ton of great restaurant/cafe suggestions!

    • caitlin November 7, 2009, 7:06 pm

      We are coming to Manchester for a game!!! Would love suggestions.

  • Felicia November 7, 2009, 3:48 pm

    I’m really intrigued by breakfast pizza. I’ve never had it, but it always sounds pretty good. Looking forward to the pics!

    Just saw the score of the game scroll by (watching Penn St./Ohio St.). Congrats!!
