I’ve already admitted to you people that I am the football fanatic in this family. My husband really enjoys football. I love football. We argue both the importance and the degree of that distinction all the time; in fun, of course.
I was incredibly happy to accidentally find this blog post called “The Top 5 Vegetarian-Friendly NFL Stadiums“, even though our stadium isn’t one of them. It’s enough to make me hope that we could make a football vacation out of this, but I doubt that would impress my husband, who likes his home games and his games at home. However, it’s great to know that some stadiums have something to offer vegetarian fans.
The article, which is on the LivingGreenMagazine website (where “Green is Read”, I love that) is by Jeff Mackey of PETA and he relayed the results of PETA’s 2012 list of the Top Five Vegetarian-Friendly NFL Stadiums.
First up is Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Philadelphia Eagles.
It took top honors for the third year in a row, because of its
Awesome array of meat-free options, which include a mock-steak sandwich, a ‘chicken-steak’ sandwich, a seitan brisket, and veggie burgers and dogs.”
In second place is Gillette Stadium, home ground of the New England Patriots.
Gillette gets a nod because of its variety of veggie options. It’s offered veggie burgers and veggie dogs for some time, but has now added to its menu
black-bean burgers, grilled portobello mushroom burgers, and grilled veggie flatbread wraps.”
Third place honors go to O.Co Coliseum, home of the Oakland Raiders.
Yes, I’m a Californian, but no, those aren’t my guys. The O.Co made the list because of it’s veggie dog, black bean burger and veggie burrito.
In fourth place is the Georgia Dome, the stomping ground of the Atlanta Falcons.
The Georgia Dome also offers veggie dogs and veggie burgers, but vegetarians adore the
mock-meat Sloppy Jane, made with peppers, onions, molasses, and brown-sugar barbecue sauce.”
Last but not least is the Detroit Lions’ Ford Field.
In Detroit, fans can scarf down
vegan sloppy Joes, hearty veggie burgers, hummus with vegetables, and fruit cups with chili lime salt.”
If your football stadium has some great veggie food, I’d love to hear about to. I may need to do an “on-the-road” assignment here. Wearing my tattered but incredibly soft Cowboys jersey.
