When you load up your team with veggies, you’re not just fueling them for the big game or that all day tailgate. You’re also helping them pack in all the extra nutrients that come from a plant-based diet. So for your next  tailgate, cookout, or picnic, opt for plant-based burgers, sausages, and yes, cheese to go with your favorite fruits and veggies. You’ll be eating more plants and spending time with friends and family all at once. It’s a win for everyone if you ask us.

Try making this easy plant-based side for your next cookout!
