Plant-based meat alternatives are taking over the food industry. You can find “fake” meat for basically everything, from chicken nuggets to deli meats. Fast-food chains, like Burger King and Carl’s Jr., have even started incorporated plant-based meats onto their menus. You can find a ton of options at your local grocery store, but these are the best plant-based meats on the market:
One of the most popular plant-based meat brands out there is Beyond Meat. Not only do they have a TON of options, but it also tastes eerily similar to real meat. You can buy breakfast sausage, burgers, ground beef, sausage, and crumbles. It’s so good your non-vegan friends won’t even be able to tell the difference.
Tofurky is one of the OG vegan meat alternatives, dating back to 1995. High in protein and similar to real meat, Tofurky has everything from deli slices to hot dogs, so you’ll never have to miss out on a good summer BBQ.
Tempted to go vegan but don’t want to miss out on pulled pork sandwiches? No worries- Uptons has pulled BBQ jackfruit that pretty much tastes like the real thing. Uptons have different types of jackfruit, seitan, and even jerky!
If you’re craving meat and looking for a vegan alternative, I can guarantee Gardein carries it. Orange chicken, sweet and sour pork, teriyaki chicken are just a few of the options- all vegan, of course!
Yves Veggie Cuisine
The Canadian company Yves suits all your vegan meat needs. You can find veggie bacon, veggie crumble, and all different types of veggie deli meats, like bologna, ham, turkey, salami, and pepperoni.
You can find Lightlife at most grocery stores. Lightlife has been around for over 40 years, offering tons of plant-based alternatives. Lightlife has plant-based meatballs, ground beef, and hot dogs.
