Tribe Gourmet

For those of you headed to Progressive Field for Opening Day, take note, there is more to baseball-gourmet than peanuts, crackerjacks and I-shaped soft pretzels...

The Indians and the Cleveland Clinic have teamed up to create a menu that is healthier than hot dog and nachos. Under the Go! Foods program, which the Clinic created to help people identify healthier foods, the ballpark will begin serving foods that have zero grams of trans fat; less than four grams per serving of saturated fat, added sugars or syrups; 100% whole grains; and 600 milligrams or less of sodium.

Some of the examples of healthy dishes available will be sweet potato “fries,” vegetable chili, Waldorf salad, salmon sliders, grilled chicken breasts, chocolate bars and frozen banana chips dipped in dark chocolate. The healthy menu will be available to all at a new concession stand near Gate A in Section 162.

I may try it out, but there is just something about a soft pretzels with stadium mustard, make my heart melt.

Salmon Slidders? You have got to be kidding me. I saw this in the news the other day. When you go to a baseball game you should eat baseball foods and drink beer. It is not the place to eat sushi and crab legs.

D'awww, that pretzel is cute. Nothing wrong with a little indulgence once in a while. That's generally why Jeff and I don't go out but on the weekends. I behave 6 days out of the week and can have a day of culinary sin.
