5 Awesome Vegan Snacks For Your Game Day Party

Some people will tell you that this upcoming Sunday is all about the game, while others argue that the commercials and the halftime show are the real reasons for tuning into the game. Then there are those of us who know that the big game is all about the food. In fact, as the two teams battle it out on the field, Americans battle it out to see who can put more food on their plate.

 

Statistically, Sunday’s big game is the second largest food “holiday” in the United States, the first being Thanksgiving. The National Chicken Council (yes, this is real thing) reported that Americans consume about 1.25 billion pounds of chicken wings during the big game. While carrot and celery sticks are moderately popular dipping snacks, they don’t come close to the 11.2 million pounds of potato chips that are consumed during the big game. Additionally, one in seven Americans order takeout, 60 percent of which are pizza orders, and about 14 billion burgers are grilled.

 

Because of all the food that is consumed during the game day weekend, antacid sales increase about 20 percent the Monday after the game. In fact, about 1.5 million Americans call in sick to work because they either have horrible stomachaches, or they are too hungover. We want you to be able to function the day after the game, though, and that’s why we have put together a list of our favorite snacks and appetizers. Snack on these foods during the game and you won’t have to worry about digestive discomfort.
