Healthy-ish at Yankee Stadium?

  • 1

So I went to the Yankees game today (2nd time there), and I was taken by the food. First, let me say that I LOVE game food. Of all types. Shocking today wasn't the cost--yes, it was expensive (although I guess I'm jaded, I half expected the prices), but the calorie counts. Specifically, two shocks.

1) How astronomically high they are. I know, it's fast food--and it's delicious. But fries at wendy's are 1200 calories? Add a hotdog at 900 and you've essentially arrived at your daily calorie intake recommendations. And that's just one hotdog and fries--no drinks, dessert, or anything else.

2) How little choice for lower calorie foods there was. I know, I don't want a salad or fruit cup or anything at a baseball game, but how about something tasty for 700 calories all in? You can't make a hamburger for 500 calories and bake some fries for 250? I didn't walk ALL the way around the stadium, but did I miss something? Assuming that I want to grab food at the game (and not BYO)--what do people who are trying to only fill up one seat do?

  1. The Lobel's prime beef sandwich is really good and I do not believe shockingly high in calories. Also there is a fresh fruit stand on the field level concourse.
