Tailgating – the PlantPure way!

Laura Dietrich

My husband and I love going to football games: the excitement, all of the fans, and of course delicious tailgate food.  It can be somewhat of a challenge though if you are plant-based.  Here are a few tips that we use to make sure we have a fun and healthy tailgating experience:

  • If I am going to someone else’s tailgate party, I always bring a heavy appetizer to share.  One of my favorites is Dixie Caviar with baked chips or hummus, pita bread, olives and pickles.  Another is a  fresh fruit platter with a ‘caramel’ dip made from pureed dates (yummy).
  • If I am hosting the party then it is a bit easier.  We often bring a huge pot of beer can chili (plant-based of course) and keep it warm in a crock pot.  We have also brought our grill and cooked veggie burgers along with all of the great toppings to make the burger really tasty.  If I am short on time I might get several large vegetarian subs from our local deli and load them up with as many plant-based toppings as possible.
  • I always make sure that I have eaten before we go into the stadium as I have found very few options once we enter.  But the way I think about it is – I am there to watch a great game – not eat a bunch of junk food!

So bundle up, put on your favorite college jersey, enjoy great friendships and go team!

Last Friday night we launched the new version of our PlantPure Entrees on Amazon, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.  We are humbled by some of the great reviews, and are also taking note of the suggestions people have provided.  
One thing we noticed was a trend of some of our meals being delivered with seals that were not fully intact.

From Plants to Politics

I try not to be overly dramatic in my writing, but I think most of us would agree we live in troubled times. We might define these troubles differently, but most of us have this sense. Most distressing in my view, however, are not the actual problems we face, but our inability to work together to find their solutions.
