Baseball Season Is Kicking Off With Incredible New Vegan Options
With vegan eating on the rise, it should come as no surprise that most Major League Baseball stadiums now offer plant-based options. And this year the variety is more impressive than ever! Foodservice company Aramark—which works with eight different teams—has announced this year’s new offerings, which include the famed Impossible Burger!
Known as the vegan burger that “bleeds,” this incredibly meaty burger is completely free of animal products, and in the past few months, it has taken the country—and now, baseball stadiums—by storm!
Organic Authority explains:
Plant-based dining options, including the vegan Impossible Burger, are coming to several Major League Baseball stadiums for the 2018 season. Aramark, a foodservice company that caters to ten ballparks nationwide and in Canada, has announced the addition of the burger to its menus as part of its healthy living initiative, Healthy for Life 20 by 20, developed in partnership with the American Heart Association. The program seeks to reduce calories, saturated fat, and sodium levels by 20 percent and increase fruits, vegetables, and whole grains by the same amount by 2020.
But these new plant-based options are far from the only exciting vegan menu items that baseball fans can count on. Here are a few of our favorites:
1. New York Yankees
Yankee stadium offers a delicious vegan black bean burger, Field Roast hot dogs, vegan sushi, garden salads, fries, and hot pretzels.
