What’s the best game day food? I like to stick to a simple formula: burgers + potatoes + Bloody Marys. These are all foods that can be quite healthy if you use the right recipe! All of the following recipes are great for gut health, and I like to think that enjoying these foods means I can enjoy a drink or two without disrupting my gut microbiome.
