Many of us throw our healthy-eating out the door at football game-watch parties.
I mean who wants to eat veggies when there are chicken wings, spinach dip, sausage dogs and nachos on the menu?
Maryland's First Lady Katie O'Malley wants people to at least try to eat healthy when the Ravens play the New England Patriots on Sunday.
She launched the ChopChop Maryland! initiative last year to promote healthy eating. This week the initiative has a recipe for a healthy cole slaw to eat on Game Day called Purple Slaw.
You'll find the recipe below. To receive monthly recipes text CHOPMD to code 43186! For Spanish text CHOPES to code 43186.
