Most people know me from The Game Changers, the documentary in which I transformed everyday comforting favorites into delicious plant-based meals. I was cooking for NFL players in the film, but in real life, I cook for all kinds of clients from athletes to musicians and just regular people looking to change the way they eat.

Once I started taking on price clients, I welcomed them into this inclusive space I call "plegan" (plant-based + vegan). It refers to people with animal-free diets who avoid meat, fish, dairy and eggs, but who may still use animal by-products, such as leather (I a not condoning leather, I am meeting people where they are). It's an inclusive space for people who have a non-animal-based diet.

When I found my mojo, I learned that I didn’t have to reinvent the wheel. I could still rely on my favorite flavors, like traditional Puerto Rican and Creole spices and jerk seasoning and make the foods I loved, now with plant-based ingredients swapped into the same dishes. I realized that I’d put up mental barriers about what could and couldn’t go in certain recipes, what was traditional, what was authentic, and what the “rules” of the kitchen were. Focusing on plants opened a whole world of opportunity. It made me become a better chef – I became more creative, with limitless ideas and even more conscious of ingredients and flavor.

My number one tip for anyone who wants to eat plant-based is to “make what you love –– just change the ingredients! That’s where LikeMeat comes in, with deliciously drool-worthy plant-based chicken including its newest addition: Like Chick’n WINGS. These wings are packed with plant-powered protein, delivering the same texture and flavor as any other “real” wing, and are perfect for game day snacking.

I love to toss the wings in my original lemon pepper sauce (recipe below) which my husband Derrick Morgan (former NFL linebacker) likes to call '“a palate destroyer” because they’re so packed with flavor that anything you eat after is undesirable!”. Here are my three tips for hosting the best, most flavorful Super Bowl party and two recipes you won't want to miss.

Chef Charity Morgan's 3 Tips for Hosting a Super Bowl Party

Celebrity Chef Charity Morgan shares her wings recipe.

Tip #1. Shop smart.

Plan your snack spread before you shop. Make a list and stick to it! When deciding to eliminate animal products, read the labels. It can be confusing to figure out which foods are free of hidden animal ingredients, like gelatin and whey. On every trip, I also love to add in a fun plant-based meat alternative and one of my favorites right now is LikeMeat. LikeMeat offers a full lineup of Like Chick’n products, the newest being Like Chick’n Wings – perfect for your upcoming Super Bowl party!

Tip #2. Serving technique is everything.

Platters and self-serve recipes are great for gatherings, it allows people to customize their own plates and nibble whenever they want. Plus, it saves you time since you won’t have to be serving people. Check out one of my favorite Super Bowl platters with LikeMeat’s Like Chick’n Wings below.

Tip #3. Get creative!

Eating plant-based doesn’t mean eating rabbit food, and you can easily keep guests happy with a diverse, delicious snack spread. You can still rely on your favorite flavors, seasoning, and spices, but with plant-based ingredients swapped into the same dishes. My new cookbook has recipes for party must-haves from nachos, to buffalo cheezy fries, to (my favorite) wings; and trust me, everyone (even meat-lovers) drools over this food. Also, on game days, everyone loves snacks that are easy to eat with your hands, so keep that in mind when developing your menu. Here are some of my delicious wing sauce recipes below that I created specifically for LikeMeat’s Like Chick’n Wings.
