We’ve been waiting all year for this day. 16 games in the regular season, two weeks of playoffs, and finally the big game is here. As you’re planning parties with friends and family, deciding what snacks and appetizers to serve, make the most of it by choosing recipes and ingredients that actually do more for the environment!
How, you ask? With all the different certifications out there, it can get a bit confusing to navigate the grocery store shelves. Fortunately, there are a few companies who have already done a lot of the legwork and research and have long-standing history of doing things the right way! Anymore, you can find so many favorite foods that have been created in a way that’s beneficial for the environment – a process that typically translates into products that are higher-quality and better for you.
The reality is that it’s not all that difficult make football party food using ingredients that have a positive impact on the earth! Instead of serving any old hot dog, serve our 100% Grass-Fed Beef Hot Dogs or Sausages. When you want something cheesy, opt for grass-fed cheese. Swap your yogurt, milk or coffee creamer for Maple Hill, a dairy company that exclusively uses dairy from 100% grass-fed cows. When you’re making eggs for breakfast, or adding them to a recipe, be sure to use pasture-raised eggs like Vital Farms. It may seem like a simple act, but the impact of consistently choosing products that are better for the planet and helping your friends and family to make better food choices, will be profound.
Now, without further ado, here are two easy game day recipes that actually do more for the planet!
