Just say NO to nachos.

We're about five weeks into football season, and let's just say we've had our fair share of Buffalo wings, loaded nachos and sliders. It's been fun, but we kind of want to fit into those slutty Halloween costumes we picked out.

Well, guess what, Houston?

We're in luck, because thanks to some of our city's finest sports bars, we can watch our games and get our fill of healthy grub. Now there's more room for the beer. (We're never fitting into those costumes, are we?)

Here are our Top 5 Local Bars with Healthy Menu Options:

5. Pub Fiction

Instead of gut-busting nachos, munch on Pub's Roasted Garlic Hummus ($9), served with warm lemon, feta, olives, cucumber, and warm, toasted lavash. Staying for another game? Try the Margarita Shrimp Salad ($13), topped with marinated grilled shrimp, roasted corn and a light cilantro-lime vinaigrette, or their super-filling Grilled Chicken & Vegetable Wrap ($10.50), stuffed with grilled chicken, zucchini, mushrooms, red peppers and garbanzo bean spread.

4. 360 Sports Lounge

Skip the fatty beef cheeseburger in lieu of a heart-healthy black bean Veggie Burger ($9) or fill up on the veggie-laced Skinny Pizza ($13), a thin-crust pie loaded with basil pesto, artichokes, spinach, mushrooms, green peppers, zucchini and sundried tomatoes.

3. Houston Texans Grille

No need for fries. Pick on steamed edamame ($6), served with a teriyaki sauce, and a brown rice Veggie Burger ($11), loaded with carrots, red cabbage and black beans and served with brown mustard alongside a house salad. Or try a grilled or blackened fish of the day (market price) alongside seasonal vegetables.

2. Blackfinn American Grille

Feast on Seared Ahi Tuna (12.99), crusted with garlic and pepper and served with pickled ginger and wasabi; a Roasted Vegetable Flatbread ($10.99), a thin, crisp lavash with balsamic portobello, a sprinkle of feta and roasted tomatoes; or Lime-Seared Salmon ($18.99), served alongside rice pilaf and roasted asparagus.

1. The DogWood

Enjoy the game with a light, lime-marinated Shrimp & Calamari Ceviche ($7) and Skinny Lettuce Wraps ($9) with chicken and black beans. Or beef up with the "I Work Out" ($12), a plate of grilled or blackened chicken breasts topped with sliced avocado and served with prosciutto-wrapped asparagus.

Sunday funday indeed!
