Happy National Hot Dog Day!

Blogger of the Day: Angela at The Veracious Vegan

My brother is a HUGE baseball fan...he's on a mission to visit every MLB ballpark in the country and as many minor league ballparks as he can find too. He's also a ballpark frank fan so every summer I send him PETA's superfabulous lists of the most vegfriendly ballparks. Here are the 2014 lists...

If you're on a nationwide tour of ballparks, you'll find boatloads of hot dog variations depending on what part of the country you're in. One of the most popular is the Chicago-style dog, which Angela has veganized deliciously! Angela is a certified Food for Life instructor for PCRM so her recipes are smartly healthy and smack full of yum! Plus she reviews popular and new-to-the-market products (including wine!) so you'll find plenty of inspiration and ideas. She recommends Field Roast franks for her recipe but any vegan dog will do.  :)

What hot dog tops your list of favorites? How do you bun it up...Chicago style, Carolina style, Coney Dog, Seattle Dog or...? Do you eat ballpark food? Who gets your vote for most vegfriendly ballpark?  :)
