Besides football and all things, my mind floats to what food to make, always potluck style.  When I think of traditional foods, naturally I think how can I add a healthy element or sneak in ingredients.  Such as using lean meats like in my homemade meatballs – use ground chicken, turkey, or beef.  Add lots of flavor using garlic, herbs, parsley, and seasonings to pack in flavor while reducing salt.
