Our Favorite Plant-Based Meat Substitutes For A More Accessible Vegan Diet
Plant-Based Meat, Yay Or Nay?
If considering transitioning to a plant-based diet, there is something should know: it is possible to be a vegan without actually eating vegetables. With numerous meat-substitute products on the market—frozen burgers, bacon, ‘meat-y’ pizza, name it, can keep eating favorite meals with fabricated meats—although it’s not advisable.
These meat-substitutes aren’t always healthy. And many come packaged in layer upon layer of plastic. While it may feel like doing a service to body and the planet by choosing these products, they are not always better.
Our first choice when choosing meat substitutes is to go the source. Our earth gives us an abundance of plant-based ingredients for making delicious and nutrient-dense recipes, and we’ve listed a few of our favorite natural meat alternatives below.
We’ve also listed a couple of products from brands we trust, ones that are using minimal and natural ingredients to create foods impossible to replicate otherwise. We recommend giving them a try and voicing support for their meatless products. We hope the future looks like many more brands creating meat-free products with minimal ingredients and packaging. If know of a company doing this that we haven’t listed, please share it in the comments below!
