What’s Eatin’ at the Fair? | OCfair2013

“Come and Get it” at the Orange County Fair

I am a healthy eater – something I try to hold true in all dining circumstances.  While my diet does not have the extreme restrictions that a gluten-free or vegan person might, I still try to steer clear of over processed and fried foods. The fair is a breeding ground for fatty foods. And as any dietician might add: indulge (in moderation!) And Live your life! Being a healthy eater does not mean living under a rock. Keep in mind there are plenty of healthy options at the fair to choose from.

For example, corn husks are delicious, a vegetable, no gluten or nothing. They fill you up, take a while to eat, and you can add your own fixings which makes the whole process of eating them even more enjoyable. I also saw a booth selling fresh fruit – another great healthy appetizer. 

Be wise when you look around.  Maybe a bite of a friends fried oreo is wiser than getting your own personal serving. Or perhaps you could split the chocolate covered bacon. Money saving advice: bring in your own water and snacks, and splurge on one item. Share with your friends so you can all enjoy the flavors without emptying your wallets.Fair Food Fair Food Fair Food
