From Tofurky to Field Roast to Gardein to Beyond Meat, there are plenty of vegan meat options on the market to satisfy every palate and fit every recipe. Just look in the refrigerated section of your local natural foods store.
Additionally, you can step back a couple centuries and rely on the heavier foods that vegetarians have traditionally eaten in place of meat: tofu, tempeh, beans, seitan, and TVP (textured vegetable protein).
If burgers, hot dogs, and chicken nuggets are what you’re jonesing for, you can find vegan versions of all these things plus deli slices, ground meat, and much more. Once again, just check the refrigerated and frozen sections of your local natural foods store or supermarket. Your meaty-yet-meatless options are virtually limitless and ever-expanding. Just be sure to read the ingredients since some meat-free alternatives contain dairy or eggs.
No matter which route you take to satisfying your meaty cravings, all of these foods are cruelty-free and rich in protein.
