Rather than focus on the foods you don’t eat — eggs, dairy, meat, seafood and often honey — these vegan products celebrate the bounty of nutrient-dense, plant-based foods. Here, beans, grains, vegetables, nuts, seeds and spices boost traditionally maligned foods like meatless meatballs with flavor, texture and protein.
If you are interested in foods that that don't contain cholesterol, don't contain possible allergens such as dairy, and are produced humanely, take a look at these products. You might find you like them, even if you don’t consider yourself a vegan.
Innovative packaging and clean ingredients make this spoonable smoothie bowl a winner.
