Winter Game Day Recipes: Alternative Snacks to Enjoy this Winter

5 minute read time

Nothing quite beats sitting down to watch your favorite team live, with your favorite snack in hand.

For most of us, we have a wide variety of choices on offer when it comes to game day, and the nutritional benefit, or lack thereof, is often the last thing that comes to our minds.

For those who have a food sensitivity, however, their choices are much more limited.

Fast food is often the first port of call for sports fans – easy, quick and usually tasty. However, with the bulk of these items containing gluten and dairy, this poses a problem for those who have a food sensitivity.

Luckily, there are homemade alternatives available to make sure you don’t miss out!

We worked with our expert nutritionist, Sal Hanvey, to provide four delicious alternative recipes for American classics for you to enjoy on gameday this winter.

Commenting on the recipes, Sal added:

“Those who have a food sensitivity are often forgotten about or ignored when it comes to offering a range of snacks at venues or at game nights at home. It’s not hard to imagine why many feel like they need to go without.

“Whether you have a food sensitivity or not, these are tasty snacks you can take with you on the go and the vegetarian buffalo wings alone have the potential to be the next family favorite.

“These recipes are tasty alternatives to some of our fast food favorites and make sure those with a food sensitivity aren’t left waiting on the sidelines on game day.”
