Foothill dining: Football food

It’s officially football season, which, for fans of the game, means heaps upon heaps of unhealthy stadium food. Some stadium offerings pack more than 2,000 calories.

How can a fan possibly stay healthy when faced with so many delicious but excessive choices?

Here are several outrageous calorific items at stadiums around the country:

Green Bay Packers

Lambeau Field serves up the Packer Pride Hot Dog: a foot long hot dog cooked inside a foot long bratwurst, all of which is completely wrapped in bacon and served on a pretzel bun. (estimated 1,442 calories, 102 g fat, 4,037 mg sodium)

 

New York Giants and Jets

Metlife Stadium offers up a Signature Sloppy Joe: a bacon sloppy joe piled high with shredded pepper jack cheese and fried onions, served with a side of corn chips. (estimated 1,265 calories, 74 g fat, 1,261 mg sodium)

 

Jacksonville Jaguars

EverBank Field dishes out the Two Point Conversion Burger: 2.5-pound burger patties with American cheese slices, fried onions, lettuce, tomato and sauce all sandwiched between two grilled cheese sandwiches. (estimated 2,175 calories, 119 g fat, 3,132 mg sodium)

 

Houston Texans

Reliant Stadium presents the Chop Baker: a baked potato loaded up with beef brisket, cheese, sour cream and green onions. (783 calories, 38 g fat, 1,303 mg sodium)

Oakland Raiders

O.co Coliseum gives fans the overstuffed Tailgate Dog: a hot dog topped with beef chili, macaroni and cheese, jalapeños and slathered in ketchup. (580 calories, 32 g fat, 1,925 mg sodium)

O.Co Coliseum also has a healthy option: Typically a veggie dog will cost you less than 250 calories and 3 g fat and 22 g lean protein to help fill you up on those fewer calories.

San Francisco 49ers

Candlestick Park serves the not too bad option: the Sam Burger is not too bad if you split it four ways. I estimate it contains about 1,150 calories, 80 g fat, 32 grams of which are artery-clogging saturated fat, and 2,268 mg sodium, which is about the amount of sodium you should have in an entire day.

Candlestick also has a healthy option: A veggie burger, estimated at 280 calories, 5 g fat, 1 g saturated fat, 11 grams protein. They also have a portobello mushroom sandwich but it may not fill you up as much since there’s typically not as much lean protein as a veggie burger.
