Veganism & Vegetarianism

Updated: Jan 28


It's well documented in literature through research findings that following a plant based way of life decreases risk of disease and comorbidity, while simultaneously increasing longevity and overall wellness.

Individuals often fall into three categories when inquiring as to why they choose to follow this particular way of life; environmental reasons, respect for animal rights, and simply desiring to capitalize on the health benefits associated with such dietary discipline.

Those favoring the environment and overall wellness typically find it easy to consume plant based alternatives that resemble the taste and texture of animal products themselves.

People actively choosing to respect animal rights more than likely need products that vary greatly from actual meats to avoid having their stomachs toss and turn.

For the environmentalist and the health buff, one will not be able to find better products than those produced by Beyond Meat! They have created the very best classic burger and sausage on the market; hands down. Providing our community with delicious high plant based protein offerings that are also Kosher, dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, and NON-GMO project verified.

Once upon a time, I personally found it difficult to be a pesco-vegetarian, mainly on the weekends when I so enjoyed a big county brunch with all the typical fixings...eggs, bacon, sausage, etc. Recently, Beyond Meat has made my dietary discipline easier to stomach as I've fallen hard for their breakfast sausage, both patties and links. An absolute perfect pairing with a Saturday or Sunday brunch! Who am I kidding? Their breakfast sausage is great any day in a given week!

I do have a special request for Beyond Meat! The vegan and vegetarian industry needs a mouthwatering hot dog that's soy free! The downside with plant based alternatives...they're typically heavy in soy protein. I love Beyond Meats so very much as they don't subscribe to supporting a high soy based diet.

My best friend and I have created a temporary solution to the industry problem but are both excited to taste Beyond Meat's take on a hot dog! We use their hamburger patties and roll them into hot dog shapes! Their classic sausage is too big for the very best gluten-free hot dog bun on the market by Sonny Marie's or any other hot dog bun for that matter; but why wouldn't you choose the industry best?

Our process for your viewing pleasure!

If you fall into the category of veganism or vegetarianism for animal rights reasons, don't worry there're awesome burgers on the market for you too! Hilary's and dr. Praeger's both create a wide variety of plant based alternatives that are not in any way shape or form attempting to mimic the taste or texture of actual animal products. A word to the wise: pass on Hilary's sausage patties! Wishing I could erase this memory from my mind!

I typically purchase my products from Raisin Rack in Westerville, Ohio but each company website will have a section to help you locate where best to buy in your community if it differs from mine or simply order online.

Whatever your reason may be for subscribing to a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle, I hope you find these products helpful in satisfying your needs! In addition, I hope in the near future Beyond Meat can fill a large void in the industry; supplying a mouthwatering plant based hot dog that's soy free!

Peace, Love, & Everlasting Protection!
