Animal-Free Super Bowl Feasts: Because Vegans Love Football Too

Categories: Vegan

Field Roast
When you think big-budget organized sports like the NFL, a vegan fan base may not be the first thing that comes to mind. Save for the Skittles commercials this coming Sunday, most of the fancy halftime food ads are totally lost on us. Big Game supermarket deals focus heavily on the burger and barbecue variety, and local bars usually hock chicken wings by the bucketful while we sift through the bowl of complimentary peanuts and pretzels. But there are plenty of (nonleather) pigskin fans out there who will be in search of something fresh and meat-free to gnaw on while watching the Seattle Seahawks take on the New England Patriots this weekend. And for them, here is a handy dandy Game Day recipe guide.

As a vegan, I find that home-cooked comfort food isn't an easy find -- at least outside of my own (amateur) kitchen. So it's a rare treat to discover an eatery that offers burgers, nachos, and chocolate mousse, all plant-based and cruelty-free.

That's the idea at Hollywood Vegan Inner Circle, a new shop and restaurant in the Yellow Green Farmers Market that specializes in hearty, inspired menu items.

His diet is green, but his soul is black!
It was an astute advice columnist who once said 'find that one thing you love...and then pursue it on night and weekends for the rest of your life, (thank you The Onion).

For many well-known faces on the internet (where most, if not all, content is free and ad revenue can be sparse) this means working the random 40-hour paycheck job and spending any other waking moments on that said One Thing because you just love it that much.

For Florida resident and Vegan Black Metal creator, Brian Manowitz, his 'thing' is donning evil, King Diamond-esque face paint, strapping on spiked metal armbands and black rubber body armor and creating easy and delicious vegan recipes, sung step-by-step in a terrifying but hilarious guttural howl.

Yellow Green Farmers Market Now Has a Vegan Sushi Booth

Sushi is not an item that tends to be easily veganized. Pull out the sea creatures and it's rice, seaweed, and, if you're lucky, a chunk of cucumber. Most eateries aren't particularly creative with fish-free sushi concoctions.

That's why the Fancy-I-Naturals booth at Hollywood's Yellow Green Farmers Market is such a fabulous find. Husband-and-wife team Christopher and Sherine Audouin are now serving freshly made vegan sushi with healthy ingredients like guacamole, quinoa, beets, and other plants.

Pay nothing for a free lunch at Chipolte on January 27.
Looking for a free lunch? If so, Chipotle is offering free sofritas grub starting January 27 in all U.S. and Canadian restaurants, including here in South Florida.

There is one catch, though: Buy something first. Specifically, you must purchase a sofritas item on January 26 and save the receipt. Then, you can then exchange the receipt on any day from January 27 to February 28, for a "bounce-back," or free, burrito, bowl, taco, or salad.

Healthy lifestyles are a lot easier to maintain when you've got a team of people cheering you on -- hence the popularity of Weight Watchers meetings and Crossfit boxes.

So if you need a little extra motivation to stay meat-free and on the move, the No Meat Athlete run group is probably a perfect fit. The fitness and social group, which has branches all over the country, recently launched a Miami arm.

This Sunday, it's hosting a run and brunch outing in Fort Lauderdale, so Broward County is getting a little love too.

The new year is here, which means the annual tradition of bemoaning holiday overindulgence has probably started in your household. WHY OH WHY did I eat that fruitcake? Did I really need to drink a whole gallon of eggnog? How could mom let me raid her butter cookie stash?

Regrets, however, are entirely pointless. Instead of feeling guilty, now's the time to start fresh with a new routine. That's the idea behind Green Bar Kitchen's seven-day group cleanse, kicking off on January 12th. If you're interested in learning more about the collective effort, you can attend GBK's information meeting on Monday, January 5th at 7 p.m.
