Vegetarian "Meat" Substitutes

This blog post was created for those following our 21 Day Vegetarian Challenge. If that's you, congrats your halfway through day four!! :-)

As part of our 21 daily tips, to help you successfully transition to a plant-based diet, we created a list of "meat" substitutes. These products will help you re-create your traditional meals and turn them into more vegetarian-friendly meals.

Please keep in mind that, although these are GREAT plant-based alternatives; the majority of your diet should still consist of fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, and seeds etc.
