If I had a dime for every time someone in my family accused me of bringing the tofu to a holiday function (as if that’s the only option available for vegetarians, right!?), I’d probably have $3 or something. I dunno. I never was very good at math.
If there’s anything I’ve learned over the years, it’s that variety is the spice of life (I’ve also learned not to listen to my uncle Sherman when he tells me there’s meat in the pies). I haven’t had the distinct privilege of hosting my own family function just yet, but when the time comes and Bryan and I move into a bigger place, it’s something that I really look forward to. I love cooking, baking, and hosting and I understand the importance of having all guests leave with full bellies.
This weekend marks the Superbowl, a time for snacking, watching some dudes throw pigskins on green turf, Lady Gaga, and commercials about Budweiser and horses (that, my friends, is my knowledge of football in a nutshell).
Babbleboxx has helped me put together some super snacks to ensure every Superbowl party is a big hit–let’s take a look at all the tasty goodies!
Better Bean Co Dips
The first item on our Superbowl party list is a crowd pleaser for a few reasons: it’s vegan, gluten- and soy-free, non GMO, and made in small batches with regional ingredients. And for those of you wondering about after effects, the beans in these dips are actually soaked and prepared for easy digestion, so you don’t have to worry about this magical fruit ruining the big game.
Anyway, these dips are incredibly delicious and versatile for your guests. You can leave them out with chips for easy snacking, add them to your nachos, throw them on a warm baguette—options are endless!

Garden of Eatin’ Tortilla Chips
I’ve been a huge fan of this brand for years, since I first discovered their tortilla chips in a health food store in Hoboken. Made with organic, garden-inspired ingredients, they contain 25% less fat than the leading conventional competitor, and they are also gluten-free, kosher, and non-GMO. They have two new varieties I’ve never heard of before—Nacho and Ranch—and both chips are very flavorful and a perfect accompaniment to the dip above!

As a vegetarian, I have a really hard time coming up with ideas for my meat-eating friends. When I heard about BIG AZ burgers and sandwiches, I thought this would be a great option to keep on hand in the freezer for nights when I have unexpected company (you know, someone who doesn’t appreciate my quinoa concoctions, lol). These sandwiches are also super convenient, because you can simply nuke and eat—no mess, no fuss.
Winner of the convenience store consumer’s choice award, BIG AZ is currently available in four different varieties—the BIG AZ Cheeseburger, the AZ Kickin’ Jalapeno Cheeseburger, the BIG AZ Country Fried Chicken Sandwich, and the BIG AZ Biscuit Stacker.
