6 Insanely Yummy Vegan Cheats For Vegans And Meat Eaters Looking To Cut Back

Tired of cooking? One month into veganism and not sure if you can keep it up? Meat eater panicking what a meatless day would look like?

We’ve all been there!

I personally don’t always manage to find time to cook. Life gets hectic and this is when food preparation shouldn’t be a source of stress! Especially when you’re sticking to a cruelty-free diet.

In times like these, a cracker with a cheese spread would be so handy indeed! But wait, doesn’t ‘vegan’ contradict with ‘cheese’?

Here’s a handy cheat sheet for all vegan busy bees and those who are just being introduced to this style of eating.

These are 6 awesome plant-based go-tos if you’re just starting your journey or in need of time-saving ideas for your plant-based kitchen

Kite Hill Cheese

6 Insanely Yummy Vegan Cheats For Vegans And Meat Eaters Looking To Cut Back

This creamy goodness is made with almond milk and is pasteurized in a similar fashion as cow/sheep/goat milk. All the flavor, none of the animal fat. My favorites are the ricotta and the soft ripened camembert. Great on whole grain toast, flaxseed crackers, veggie burger patties, etc.

Tofurky Sausages

This sausage is delicious! My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Fry it up in a pan, hot-dog style, to slip it in a bun for a healthy alternative, or cut the sausage in slices, hamburger style, to mix into a veggie scramble, a pasta/quinoa concoction, or a sugar free stir-fry. Hint: Sun-Dried Tomato Basil is by far the best.

Amy’s Kitchen Canned Goods/Frozen Foods

6 Insanely Yummy Vegan Cheats For Vegans And Meat Eaters Looking To Cut BackThere really are so many options for veggie eaters. This brand has it down, accommodating a plant based diet in the majority of their products. Any of the soups are good, but the Lentil Vegetable, the French Country, the Golden Lentil, and Curried Lentil are favorites in our house. The Refried Beans are a winner, the Dairy-Free Gluten-Free Mac and Cheese is bomb, and the Tofu Scrambles are all just fab.

Majestic Sprouted Hummus/Dips

6 Insanely Tasty Vegan Cheats For Vegans And Meat Eaters Looking To Cut BackAbsolutely incredibly! I never go more than a day without it stocked in the fridge and usually take home two containers from the grocery store just to be sure I always have it at home. The Cayenne and the Cilantro Jalapeño Hummus are the best, in my book. As far as the garlic dip, the shelf is yours. All of the flavors are mouthwatering. Enjoy with avo, crackers, kale stems (like celery), celery, carrots – anything. It’s a versatile product. Try it and you will instantly understand.

Califa Farms Almond Milk

The toasted coconut is my favorite and my roommate is obsessed with the cold brew coffee. All of it is so tasteful, it puts cow curd to shame. Great ways to use this yummy treat: as a smoothie base, with granola and berries, mixed in some protein powder, or simply sipped on its own. Super refreshing!

NuttZo Organic Seven Nut & Seed Butter

There’s no artificial junk or added sugar, which really allows you to taste the wholeness of this wonderful seed/nut creation. Spread it on some healthy toast and sprinkle some chia seeds, cinnamon, and agave nectar on top, and you have yourself one incredible sweet treat. Or you could always scoop a spoonful out and eat as is. Always a good call.
