Norfolk, Va. – At PETA, we’re gearing up to celebrate Super Bowl Sunday, vegan style—and we’re not the only ones! Football pros such as Tom Brady and Malcolm Jenkins as well as Derrick Morgan and over a dozen other Titans—are turning to energy-boosting vegan food to help during training and recovery, and recent surveys show that more than 20 million millennials are opting for vegan fare on game day and every other day as they consider the impact of their choices on animal welfare and the environment.

PETA offers a library of easy-to-make vegan recipes—including trendy Buffalo cauliflower wings—that the whole crowd can enjoy, including both vegans and the many hosts who will welcome a vegan friend or family member to their parties this year. Many vegan food bloggers have also posted recipes for decadent on-theme treats such as vegan mac ‘n’ cheese balls, chocolate football cupcakes, and chocolate-covered football strawberries.
