Fortunately, Derrell Smith, chef and former linebacker for the Houston Texans, has some suggestions. In this article, we’ll be summarizing Smith’s advice for stocking up on four essential foods and curbing cravings for unhealthy foods.

Smith’s new special, “The Ultimate Game Day Spread,” features football legends and basketball stars, making food and discussing their game day rituals. Smith, who had to pivot to a career in food after a neck injury, believes that “food is fuel” and that if you balance your diet, you’ll get the results you want.

Smith suggests stocking up on fresh fruit, such as bananas and açaí, as well as frozen fruit for smoothies. Peanut butter, greens such as arugula, asparagus and lettuce, and carbs such as bread, rice or crackers are also staples in Smith’s diet.
