Take Me Out To The Haul Game

baseballYou need to know two things about me:
1. I am a Red Sox fan.
2. Thanks to The Boyfriend’s Yankees season tickets, the number of Yankees games I have attended (as a non-cheering observer, it should be noted) far exceeds the number of Red Sox games I’ve attended in my life. The things we do for love, eh?

Anyhoo, I accompanied him to one of the pre-season exhibition games a few weekends ago at the new Yankee Stadium. When not giving Jeter the hairy eyeball, I was pleasantly surprised to note that all of the food stands are now complying with New York City’s mandate to post caloric information on their menus. And because I love you all so much, I walked around to just about every counter, kiosk and stall in order to get an idea of what passes for healthier choices at the ballpark. (HaulBuns.com: Now with original reporting!)

So in time for Opening Day in the New York region, here’s a list of stuff you nosh at the ballpark. Keep in mind that the stadium is only required to post calories, not fat or sodium. Also keep in mind that some things, despite their ridiculously high calorie counts — souvenir bucket of popcorn, anyone? — are worth indulging in once in a while in the name of baseball, America and summer fun. And it’s actually a lot easier to eat healthy at the new stadium, with its sushi station and fresh fruit cart, than it was at the old. So here’s a list, broken down into chunks, of what the new Yankee Stadium has to offer.

Not a Yanks fan? Don’t live near New York? Couldn’t care less about pride, pinstripes, power? Take a look at the list below, anyway: Plenty of the selections are offered in parks across the country.

    Perfect timing with this story! I’m going to the Yankee game on Saturday. And I’ll let it be known I am a Mets fan and am going as an observer as well haha 🙂

    I can not believe all of that. I think I’ll think twice before I decide to have most of those higher calorie things on the list. Thanks for being a wealth of knowledge!
