I decided to go on a hunt for some of the best vegetarian and vegan foods, and this is the result.
Daiya has given me great tasting vegan cheese (it’s rare), and I love them for that! They have cheese shreds, cheese sticks, and cheese slices. My favorite is the cheddar, especially in a grilled cheese.
Wow, ParmCrisps are seriously addicting! They taste exactly how you would imagine. ParmCrisps comes with regular parmesan cheese (the vegetarian option) and plant-based cheese (the vegan option).
The yogurt is good, but the chocolate pudding and mousse is absolutely delectable.
Lightlife has burgers, sausages, ground, hot dogs, and more. Everything is plant-based. Check out the yummy recipes on their website.
Alpha Foods plant-based Chik’n Nuggets
I love a good chicken nugget, as long as there were no chickens harmed in the making of them. These meatless nugs are great paired with your favorite dipping sauce (mine’s chipotle mayo). Toss them in the microwave for a quick snack. Now, you can order the delicious, vegan nuggets online via direct-to-consumer here, along with a variety of other tasty meal bundles!
Deep Indian Kitchen’s Potato & Pea Samosas
I gotta tell ya, I haven’t eaten a lot of Indian food in my life, but these are SO GOOD. There’s a flaky pastry outside, and they’re filled with a pea and potato mixture, plus there’s a chutney dipping sauce.
The Meatless Farm Co. has meatless ground, burgers, sausage patties, and sausage links. My fave was the meatless ground.
These are SO delicious! I love the RollinGreens cauliflower wing and the millet tots. My mouth is watering just thinking about them. You have to try them.
These are amazing! I like to wrap up my favorite greens mix in these for a quick and healthy snack.
Love Manolo’s Best sweet potato chili! It has chunks of sweet potato, black beans, cannellini beans, tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, olive oil, cocoa powder, molasses, and some spices.
Life’s Grape dark chocolate covered raisins are a new fave snack of mine. The bitter chocolate with the plump and juicy raisins is just a perfect mix. You can also get classic, which doesn’t have the chocolate, but, like, why would you?
I love Rule Breaker! These brownies are made with chickpeas, and they are absolutely delightful. It’s a great bedtime snack.
These are sweet and salty and savory, the perfect snack combination of flavors. Plaintain chips are another new favorite of mine!
Um, these thin, bite-sized cookies are so addictive! Did I mention they’re vegetarian, too?
A smoothie without the mess? Yes, please! Take them to work with you or just microwave for 10 to 15 seconds for a nutritious meal or snack whenever you want. Mixes include Amazon superberry, berry bliss, and peanut butter power. Plus, the bowls are made with 100 percent plant-fiber that is recyclable and compostable.
I love that these are high in protein and low in sugar. I’m always skeptical of protein bars because I’ve tasted some pretty bad ones. I think we’ve all been there. But One Plant’s bars are absolutely delicious! My favorite is the churro.
These kind of taste like apple pie, and what’s not to love about that?
Have some meatless jerky! Try smoked chipotle or Korean BBQ.
I love jam, but not the sugar content. These jams have just 4 to 5 calories and 4 grams of sugar per serving. Hallelujah! My fave is the strawberry.
As a Mainer, born and raised, where we have fresh, real maple syrup, I was super skeptical of this maple-flavored syrup. But I was absolutely SHOCKED when I tasted it because it really tastes just like authentic maple syrup. This is going to be a new must-have in my kitchen. I love it in my oatmeal, but I don’t love the calories. This is a great alternative.
