Overshadowed only by Thanksgiving, Super Bowl Sunday marks a banner day in meat consumption for Americans. So much so that the National Chicken Council estimates that 90 million pounds of chicken wings will be consumed during game weekend. While many Americans have trimmed down their red-meat consumption, chickens often get the shaft in this arrangement, with more people simply switching to poultry in its place.
Resist becoming just another game-day statistic and answer the call for tasty grub sans cruelty as Gardein launches its football "Game Day Contest." The plant-based chicken substitute that has garnered praises from carnivores and vegans alike for its meaty texture and overall taste is part of a contest in which fans create and submit a 60-second-or-less "Big Game"-worthy video commercial featuring any Gardein product.
Read contest details and game-day recipes after the jump.
