Football Favs

Fall means football season which is probably my favorite time of year aside from summer. Anyone else getting excited? This is my third year doing Fantasy with my co-workers and our draft is actually next week. I won my first year doing it (thank you Big Ben, Antonio Brown and LeVeon Bell).

As you probably already know, with football also comes tailgating and Sunday Funday. This means burgers, hot dogs, wings, beer and many other not-so-healthy food choices. If you are looking for an alternative to those greasy beef patties or queso, I’ve found great alternatives for you…

These Freezer Friendly Homemade Vegan Veggie Burgers are super easy, healthy and DELICIOUS! Oh and they are grain free, dairy free and soy free for those of you with allergies. This recipe was created by one of my favorite bloggers, Lindsay Cotter aka Cotter Crunch.

These burgers come together super quick if you have a Vitamix or food processor.

Formed into patties and placed on parchment paper for easy clean-up, and then baked.

I topped mine with avocado and served with sweet potato fries (not pictured).

I also love this Mango Crab Guacamole which I made this past weekend for a little get together with friends. Everyone’s reaction when I opened the container was…”that’s a lot of guacamole.” I made a lot for a reason and it only took one-bite for them to realize it.
