Eat This, Not That, the Vegan Edition

Hi guys! I’ve been getting a lot of questions from non-vegans who are interested in going vegan, but are unsure of where to start. There are so many products out there that have animal byproducts in them that it can become overwhelming. That’s why I’m here! Below is a list of vegan alternatives that are both savory and healthy.

Need a morning boost? Nibble on a power bar!

There are too many vegan power bars out there for you not to try one! Give a Cliff, Larabar, Simple Protein, or Sheffa Savory bar a chance if you want enough energy to start the day. There are so many flavors to choose from so you’ll never be forced to eat the same thing every morning.

I know you won’t be disappointed. They also come in an assortment of flavors like sweetened, unsweetened, chocolate, vanilla, and very vanilla if you’re a sweets type of person.

If you want to eat cheese, but the idea of harming furry babies leaves a sour taste in your mouth, check out brands like Daiya, So Delicious, Follow Your Heart and Field Roast.
