Word on the street tells me the AFL grand final is happening this weekend. It's an easy weekend to overindulge in food that's guaranteed not to make you feel good. We're talking sausages filled with stuff you can't pronounce, served on white bread that was probably made 10 years ago (seriously, that stuff is LOADED with preservatives), topped off with tomato sauce that should really just be called red sugar syrup. Washing it all down with some beer and snacking on deep fried potato chips in between. Then loading up your plate with dessert disasters! Try getting up and feeling great the next day after all of that! As usual, we are here with a healthy alternative.
Here's a bunch of snacks you can enjoy this weekend that are made from whole foods and sure to impress your mate Diet Coke Dave.
