Food science has come a long way. We can remember a few years ago when plant-based meals meant eating spinach and glorified rubber. Today, things are a lot different. Many people who try plant-based foods can’t even tell the difference between them and their meaty, cheesy counterparts! Read on to discover the top four delicious vegan food brands to try.
If you’re looking for a ton of meal options, look no further than Gardein. They’ve got burgers, chicken, ground beef, pork, and more—all without a pinch of meat. We’re willing to bet that Gardein-loving vegans could easily survive exclusively on Gardein products and good ol’ H2O (but why not add some other tasty products to your meal repertoire)?
A few years ago, Burger King ran a commercial in which regular people couldn’t tell the difference between a regular Whopper and an Impossible Whopper. You probably can’t, either! Impossible burgers are fantastic and easily the best burger substitute on the market. If you’ve heard the plant-based diet myth that you can’t get enough protein while eating vegan, Impossible will prove it wrong in a heartbeat.
Jack and Annie’s
Not all vegan chicken gets the texture quite right—but Jack and Annie’s nails it. We’re happy to say the same for their sausage patties—in fact, everything we’ve tried from Jack and Annie’s is an excellent vegan substitute that tastes sublime.
While this isn’t a fully vegan brand, Country Crock makes the best vegan butter we’ve ever had. You truly can’t tell the difference. Some vegan butter comes out too chalky or stiff, but Country Crock’s olive oil butter and avocado butter are a cut above the rest. Whether you’re spreading the stuff on your morning bagel or using it for baking chocolate chip cookies, you can’t go wrong with this vegan substitute.
Now that you know the top four delicious vegan food brands to try, what are you waiting for? Get out there and start munching on plant-based deliciousness! Your taste buds (and your conscience) will thank you!
