How did the original Buffalo Sauce get its name? According to time.com, “The Buffalo wing was invented in 1964, which makes it younger than Demi Moore, Johnny Depp — and even Barack Obama. But how did the spicy snack come about? And why is it served with celery?

There are at least two different versions of the Buffalo wing’s origin, although they contain the same basic facts. The first plate of wings was served in 1964 at a family-owned establishment in Buffalo called the Anchor Bar. The wings were the brainchild of Teressa Bellissimo, who covered them in her own special sauce and served them with a side of blue cheese and celery because that’s what she had available. Except for the occasional naysayer who claims to be the true inventor, these facts are reasonably undisputed. The rest of the story is anybody’s guess.”

And speaking of tempeh, volume for volume, soy contains more protein than beef, more calcium than milk, more lecithin than eggs, and more iron than beef.
