Easy Dairy Free Game Day Snack Idea

I’ve never been a huge fan of football. I’m the type of person who will watch because everyone else is watching, and I basically have no other choice if I don’t want to sulk off on my own. (Which I’m also totally fine doing.) Typically, my game day activity is reserved for the Superbowl. And that’s mostly to watch the ads. Although, these days, I often catch them the next day on Hulu. I did happen to watch an interesting college football game recently though. It was a Gators game. Just before halftime, things basically exploded into what looked like a hockey match, and I admit, I was entertained.

That said, I can always appreciate game day snacks. Chips and dip are probably my favorite game day snack idea. They’re quick and easy, and everyone is a fan. Unfortunately, even easy game day snacks ideas can come with challenges. It’s not uncommon to know someone who has dietary restrictions. Whether it’s by choice, for personal or health reasons, or by necessity due to an allergy.

My mom, for example, has become increasingly lactose intolerant as she’s aged. And me, well, dairy triggers my eczema even as an adult.

My diary free jalapeno ranch dip recipe is an easy game day snack idea that takes the guesswork out of finding an option that suits everyone. Not only is it vegan friendly, it’s also gluten and dairy free.
