    If You're Cutting Out Meat, Give These 32 Things A Spin

    Oh hey, mushroom "jerky" that tastes like beef jerky is a delicious, very real thing.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors.

    1. Misfits Market – it'll help you fill up on organic veggies and produce by sending you stuff that's perfectly fine but maybe not up to grocery store standards (think spots) in an attempt to curb food waste. I use it and can't stop recommending it to friends!

    Elizabeth Lilly / BuzzFeed

    If I could get away with it, I’d live off of gas station snacks. Digiornio’s pizzas, Slim Jims, ice-cold Mountain Dews, and other things that are surely taking weeks off my life with each bite or sip are my siren call. So I try to balance that out by filling up on veggies when I’m cooking for myself at home. But I hate, no DETEST, grocery shopping. Also, apparently, living in the Gossip Girl neighborhood will really drive up the price of groceries. So when my Aunt Lynn mentioned she subscribes to the Misfits Market box, I had her text me a promo code. I’ve received three boxes so far and don’t plan on quitting anytime soon. This beaut delivers organic produce straight to your door that might be a little ugly and not up to grocery stores’ visual standards. Spaghetti squash or Roma tomatoes may have a few spots on them (hence the savings with imperfect-looking stuff) but they always taste as good as the flawless stuff you’d find in a store. On the Sunday night of the week that you're scheduled for a delivery, you log in and add stuff to cart until you reach the $40 minimum. As one person, I can live off of the produce for like a WEEK. Probably a few days more! But it also forces me to be creative to use up these delicious beauts. Like this tasty oven roasted ratatouille recipe I whipped up to use up my zucchini, tomatoes, and yellow squash before I was away for a long weekend.

    I like that it forces me to be a little creative (something my aunt also said!) though a lot of times I end up chopping up and roasting veggies with garlic, salt, pepper, and olive oil. (Roasted veggies are my fave.) Now if you have a *very* specific grocery list with must-have produce on it, you likely won’t be able to snag everything on your list in an order. Misfits Market carries in-season stuff and it varies week by week. But so far I’ve been able to get some form of lettuce or salad base each time and tomatoes.

    It delivers on a bi-weekly basis. But you can change your delivery schedule, skip a delivery, or even donate the delivery you’d otherwise completely skip! Donating charges you your regular subscription fee (minus shipping) and the company donates that food to a food bank. I ADORE this service. It makes grocery shopping less overwhelming, gives me a bit of a boost by making me think that I’m helping rescue food that’d otherwise go to waste, and, well, helps me eat the amount of veggies I know I should be consuming.

    2. A produce dicer to transform those whole veggies you purchase to buy you extra time between grocery trips into the chopped wonders you can also buy at the grocery store BUT go bad lightning fast.

    Amazon

    Oh and people say using this helps prevents tears from chopping onions! But if you really wanna play offense on onions, you can put 'em in the freezer for a bit before chopping to keep the tears at bay.

    Promising review: "I love this veggie chopper. I often use it to make veggie soups and to make hash browns with onions and peppers. (Before this I would view that as far too much work due to the need to chop everything so finely.) I also use it to make zucchini spiral noodles for veggie 'spaghetti.' I appreciate the fact that it is easy to store the spare parts inside the spiralizer. Also, the brush is handy for cleaning." —SLC

    Get it from Amazon for $23.97.

    3. Or a manual food chopper that'll make quick work of herbs, fruits, veggies, and ice in case your knife skills could use some practice or you just wanna make food prep a lil' more fun.

    amazon.com

    It's also dishwasher-safe (top rack only!) so cleanup is super simple.

    Promising review: "This is great for cutting lots of veggies super fast. All you have to do is rough chop down your veggies toss them in and give it four to five pulls for perfectly diced chunks for salsa or toppings on eggs or tacos. It comes with a handy cover too so all you have to do is rinse the blade and toss the container in the fridge or cooler." —Kevin B.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.30+ (also available in green).

    4. A variety pack of A Dozen Cousins ready-to-eat seasoned beans, an extremely tasty recipe of a dinner staple already zhuzhed up for you, unlike the bulk bag of dried black beans you bought at the grocery store but have actively avoided because of all the extra work. These bags o' beans are great for bulking up meatless meals!

    Amazon

    The founder based his flavorful creations off his own Creole, Caribbean, and Latin kitchen. These are the ultimate in convenience. You only have to put the bag in the microwave for 60 seconds, which'll help you concentrate on the other parts of your meal. I love mixing the Trini Chickpea Curry with leftover rice for a super satisfying weekday lunch. The black beans are TO DIE FOR.

    Promising review: "Who writes a review about beans? Somebody who loves beans but had given up on them, until now. This is a great product. Canned beans from my local supermarket are always a disappointment so I stopped getting them. I don't have time to cook beans myself but A Dozen Cousins beans are fresh and taste terrific. I am trying to eat healthier and these are a great way to do that. I've been trying to avoid packaged, processed foods but the natural ingredients make these different. I can feel good about eating them. The beans are whole and not mashed up like in cans. All of the varieties are seasoned well and versatile. I've had them on their own, in salads and in wrap sandwiches. I'm really happy to have found these and hope they continue to add new flavors and products. Do yourself a favor and order some. You won't regret it." —Amazon Customer

    Get a pack of six from Amazon for $24.99.

    5. A rapid egg cooker to help you nail down a protein source in lots of different ways! Or just fix yourself a big batch of deviled eggs, which IMO could make for a great dinner.

    the egg cooker
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love hard-boiled eggs for protein especially when I’m on the go as a student/worker but it’s hard to wait for the water to boil then put In the eggs and get ready all at the same time. This cooker is amazing!! Saves me time, it’s quick and I don’t have to watch it while it cooks I can go get ready and then I hear a loud buzzer notifying me when the eggs are done! (The buzzer is really loud and sounds like a basketball game buzzer) I was surprised how fast the eggs cooked and was afraid they were still raw." —OnAJourney

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in six colors).

    6. An Instant Pot – it can handle 9 (!!!!) kitchen tasks in one precious lil' appliance body so dinner's ready as soon as you walk in the door. Reviewers call it their "secret weapon," which I guess isn't so secret anymore.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This baby serves as a rice cooker, pressure cooker, slow cooker, steamer, sauté, yogurt maker, sterilizer, and warmer. Pinterest has been all about the Instant Pot for a few years and you should really hop on this bandwagon. Just check out our full review of the Instant Pot and Instant Pot recipes that'll basically cook themselves. Still unconvinced? Look at all the yummy Amazon reviewer photos.

    Promising review: "It makes dinner fast and easy, and if you're like my family and default to vegetarian due to the simple fact that dealing with meat is too much with two kids and everyone getting home at 6:30 p.m., it's a godsend for better protein in your life." —Noel

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99+ (available in 3-, 6-, or 8-quart sizes). Also check out an 11-in-1 Instant Pot with an air fryer.

    7. And some slow cooker liners to make cleanup a total cinch. I use these and they're THE BEST.

    Amazon

    I always keep these in my kitchen cabinets on the same shelf as my ziplock bags because have you ever tried to clean out a slow cooker? Yeah? OK, you know what I'm talking about. It's super cumbersome! I used to *not* use my slow cooker because I dreaded the cleanup. These totally solve that! And no, your food won't taste or smell like plastic because of them. Granted, they're not the most sustainable solution but they're incredibly helpful.

    Get a box of six liners from Amazon for $2.94.

    8. A mushroom "jerky" that'll help satisfy that smoky craving and texture in a vegan package that'll, well, have you checking the package to make sure that it is indeed make of mushrooms. (It is.) Even reviewers who don't like mushrooms like this stuff!

    the bags of jerky with pieces of the jerky
    Amazon

    They're 100% plant-based, gluten-free, soy-free, non-GMO, and made without artificial sweetener.

    Promising review: "I don't like mushrooms. However, I would have never guessed this was made from mushrooms. All the flavors are absolutely delicious. I was able to fool three family members who don't like mushrooms either. They love Moku jerky though. I also really love that this product is high in fiber, low in sugar and sodium. I don't usually do reviews unless I have a serious problem or really really like something, but I had to tell meat lovers and mushrooms haters to give it a try." —Bargain Diva

    Get a three-pack of bags from Amazon for $21 (available in three flavors or a variety pack).

    9. And a vegan "pepperoni" jerky to sub in when you're craving a greasy slice. But let's be honest, when are you not craving that?

    the packets of pepperoni bits
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I had the pizza guys at my restaurant job make me a pizza with this all over it — I miss pepperoni and bacon so much! It literally tastes like I'm eating a pizza with lots of crispy bacon on it and it's delicious!" —Shaina

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $14.95.

    10. A pink oyster mushroom grow kit in case you wanna harvest your own mushrooms and feast upon your newfound hobby. Plus, they're so pretty!

    Nearby Naturals

    Nearby Naturals is an Orlando-based small biz specializing in mushroom grow kits.

    This kit yields 2–4 lbs with this Pink Oyster (Pleurotus djamor) kit. They're heart, meaty, and aromatic. Plus oyster mushroom varieties are the highest yielding strain available. They're great for year-round cultivation and work in recipes that call for button mushrooms.

    Get it from Nearby Naturals for $40 and check out more mushroom type grow kits.

    11. Or a no-knead bread kit if you'd rather use meat-smoking or burger patty-forming time to create some lovely, lovely carbs without the cumbersome part.

    Dough Dealer

    Dough Dealer is a woman-founded company whose founders were inspired when a friend brought a homemade loaf of bread for dinner. Then they baked hundreds of loaves of bread to get the *just right* recipe for us, the lucky customers!

    This ~foolproof~ kit has measured ingredients and easy directions to make the the perfect airy and crisp loaf. The process takes 15 minutes of active work plus 3 hours 45 minutes resting, rising and baking. So lots of hanging out time for you!

    Get it from Dough Dealer for $18.99.

    12. A handheld veggie spiralizer to help pump those meals full of veggies without spending tons of time on a bigger zoodle contraption.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It has a finger protector, and a container with a bottom lid — so you can automatically and easily catch all your zoodles as you spiralize! Plus, there are three blade settings for thin, medium, or ribbon zoodles.

    Promising review: "This little thing is sharp! I love how compact it is and how fast I can zoodle up an entire zucchini. Perfect for small kitchens like mine. I haven’t had any issues cleaning or using it and reach for it almost daily." —Rachel Akiko

    Get it from Amazon for $9.97.

    13. And speaking of sauce, a microwave pasta cooker that'll help you achieve al dente noods ready to top off with some jarred sauce for a super easy meatless meal that doesn't require boiling water on the stove.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I don't want to get all gushy over a pasta maker, but man...I really love this gizmo! I like spaghetti — either with normal Prego-type sauce or sometimes just with butter and Romano cheese sprinkled on. But I'm lazy and impatient, and don't like things that take a long time to make, with a bunch of steps, and a big clean up afterwards. The Fasta Pasta is perfect for me. I get the exact amount of correctly-measured spaghetti; it's faster than boiling water in a big pot then having to watch and stir the pasta; the pasta comes out perfectly cooked every time; and the cleanup is a snap." —Smilin Sam

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    14. A microwave veggie steamer to help you easily transform all those raw veggies into super palatable sides for meals.

    The steamer
    Amazon

    It has a 2-cup capacity so it's great for dinner for one, or a side for a larger family meal!

    Promising review: "I bought this as a quick way to make veggies after getting home from school. Just pop it in the microwave for two minutes and it’s done! An instant healthy side." —Savannah Geiger

    Get it from Amazon for $6.

    15. A Souper Cube, which is really just fancy talk for a silicone freezing tray for soups and stews. Each cube is a perfect portion you can meal prep, freeze, and then pop out and heat up as you want them. Yep, it's that easy!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Each tray has four fill lines — 1/2 cup, 1 cup, 125 mL, and 250 mL — which is ideal for people who like to portion their food. Reviewers also use them to prep smoothie ingredients.

    Promising review: "So happy that I found these. I’m the only one in my household who enjoys soup year-round. Have you ever tried to make homemade soup for one? I say it’s impossible! But no longer. I can brew up the stock pot with bone broth or my favorite home soup. Fill up my Souper Cubes, freeze, pop out, store my goodies in a freezer bag, and I’m ready for the next batch!" —Debbie R. Texas

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95.

    16. Simulated chicken nuggets for the look and taste without, well, the bird! The coating still has all the crunch you crave and love.

    A plate of the nuggets
    BuzzFeed / Heather Braga

    My colleague Heather Braga has tried these and is a big fan. Here's what she has to say:

    "I'm not a vegetarian by any means (I enjoy a cheeseburger from time to time) but I'm also not a huge meat eater and am happy to switch things up in my diet when I can. When I was offered a sample box of these nuggetsI couldn't say no — and I'm glad I didn't. Nuggs (the best brand name ever, dare I say?) are delicious. They are entirely plant-based but somehow magically taste exactly like real chicken nuggets. The texture and flavor is spot on. They refer to themselves as the "Tesla of chicken" which makes me giggle but is also pretty accurate. A standard box comes with 50 nuggets, which lasts quite a while, but if you're looking to stock up you can also order a box of 100. They advertise a box of 10,000, but honestly I'm not 100% sure that's real??? If it *is* I kinda want to invest and throw a big Nugg party."

    Get a box of 100 original or spicy nuggets from Nuggs for $44.99.

    Also check out the simulated chicken discs that'll be great for sandwiches!

    17. And some grain-free pizza bites that'll transform from frozen to hot and delicious in a mere few catchup rounds of TikTok videos your friends texted you while SOMEONE (meaning: YOU, not your friends) was working today. Seriously though, they're *so* scrumptious and I've eaten this for quite a few dinners.

    @eatsnowdays / Via instagram.com

    Yeah you read that right, these crisp but cheesy pillows of flavor are grain-free, and made with organic vegetables, grass-fed mozzarella, grass-fed butter, free-range eggs, and olive oil. I, a single adult, went through two bags of these quicker than I'd like to admit for some quick dinners, and lunches, and breakfasts. They're SO good and I feel more powerful with this knowledge.

    Get two packs from Snow Days for $34.99 (also available on a subscription basis).

    18. A cauliflower prep tool to make quick work of that glorious veggie. The quicker you can get to covering that cauliflower steak in olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper and then roasting it, the better.

    Amazon

    This tool features an ergonomic handle that'll be easy on the wrist while using, so those with arthritis can use it without worry. It's dishwasher-safe and easy to store.

    Promising review: "I love cauliflower, but what a pain it is to cut off the little florets. This actually works, and works well. It doesn't seem very sharp, but it sure preps like it is." —Animal Lover

    Get it from Amazon for $7.19.

    19. Daily Harvest – it's a great option if you wanna dip your toe into smoothies, oat bowls, and other scrumptious things that are delicious, meat-less, but seem to take up a lot of ingredients. (I'm not buying pine pollen and black sesame at the grocery store either).

    a smoothie, matcha latte, bowl of soup, grain bowl, flatbread, and cookie dough bites
    Daily Harvest

    If Daily Harvest sells it, I've tried it (and really loved it). Their latest venture isn't a complete meal kit, *but* mylk (aka almond or almond and vanilla milk) that you can get frozen in cubes for easier storage. Come on, that's just genius and total bait for a creature of convenience like me.

    Meal types offered: smoothies, mylk, harvest bowls, flatbreads, soups, oat bowls, chia bowls, scoops, bites, and lattesWhat does it include? Frozen ingredients in the cups or containers seen here (excluding a liquid like water or your fave type of mylk if your smoothie or soup requires it) in a box with a dry ice pack. As soon as your order arrives transfer it to your freezer or immediately enjoy. Packaging is compostable and recyclable (made from plants!).

    Where is it delivered? Ships to 95% of the continental US. Check availability by entering your zip code

    Prices: plans start at $5.99/item and can be tailored to weekly or monthly

    Check out the Acai + Cherry smoothie featured above. (I've had it and it's gooooood.)

    20. BeLeaf vegan bacon to help round out those BLTs, breakfast dishes, and well, anything else you'd eat with bacon. (So many possibilities!) It's thin, crispy, and made to taste like the real deal.

    GTFO It's Vegan

    This product is 100% Animal-Free, Non-GMO and contains zero trans-fat.

    Promising review: "I just purchased this vegan bacon and glad I found it! I have been looking for this product ever since I tried vegan bacon burger in a local vegan restaurant. The aroma, texture, and taste is very similar to bacon. To cook, it only takes a few minutes under medium flame/heat, it is best to keep the vegan bacon at its tender consistency and not crunchy." —Mary Colmenar

    Get it from GTFO It's Vegan for $9.99.

    21. Or some coconut "bacon" you can sprinkle on top of avocado toast, salads, and basically anything on which you'd sprinkle actual bacon bits. It's the little things like this that can really set off at-home meals!

    avocado toast with tomatoes and the fake bacon bits on top
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I've gone on a no-daily, no gluten, vegan diet due to health issues. Really missing my bacon. Not that I ate a ton of it before, but it's the old idea that when you can't have something it's all you want. Got this in the mail yesterday morning and was amazed. To be clear, I have tried a half-dozen fake 'bacon' products in the past week and they all sucked. This one totally does not suck. It melts in your mouth, just like bacon. Has the same texture, flavor, etc. No, it's not bacon, but I would say it's as close as you're gonna get. It's not overly crunchy, not too soft, just right. These would be excellent in a salad, in scrambled eggs, mac and cheese, or even a BLT. Too bad I have not made any of those things, because I keep taking this stuff right out of the bag and stuffing it in my face." —Heather Ryerson

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $14.99.

    22. An air fryer for turning all sorts of non-meat things into deliciously crispy versions without using a ton of oil!

    A reviewer pulling out the basket from the light blue air fryer containing perfectly cooked french fries
    amazon.com

    Simply put your food in the fryer basket, set the temp and the timer, and your food will come out crispy and delish. The auto-shutoff feature will help prevent overcooking, and the cool-touch handle means no hand burns when pulling your food out. Comes with a recipe book for inspo! And if you need further convincing, check out a BuzzFeeder's review (#1) here. (And if you're not going full vegetarian, this'll also work great on things like steaks, chicken tenders, and wings.)

    Promising review: "I have extensively used this air fryer for a couple of months now and I really, really like it. It's perfect for one person. I cook fries, veggie meatballs, grilled cheese sandwiches, frozen broccoli, etc. in it, and so far have had no problems. It also has a nice small footprint if you live in a small apartment with a small kitchen." —Ursa Major

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99 (available in five colors).

    23. Beyond Burgers that'll put meat eaters in shock and awe. It's an eerily similar taste though it's made of veggies, which is great if you just crave the taste of a regular old burger.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, beyondmeat / Via instagram.com

    My colleague Heather Braga is also a fan of these. Check out her review:

    "Hear me out — I'm not a huge meat-eating person, however I love a good burger once in a while. When my husband and I decided to try these on a whim we weren't sure what to expect. But what really didn't prepare for was literally not being able to tell that these burgers weren't meat. I've since been trying to convince everyone in my life to give them a try. Most recently, I got my veryyyyyy Italian, meat-loving in-laws to give them a go. My mother-in-law was fully ready to hate these burgers. After her first bite she quietly looked down at the burger in her hands and said "wow, I can't tell the difference." Do yourself a favor and give Beyond Burgers a try — they're like a delicious mind trick you won't be able to figure out."

    Get a 2-pack from Target for $5.99.

    24. Splendid Spoon to help you fast-forward through the meal prep thanks to their ready-to-eat plant-based smoothies, soups, and bowls. They're even appetizing enough to lure in the most avid beef eaters!

    @splendid spoon / Via instagram.com

    I've also had the pleasure of trying out this meal kit. I found the meatless bowls pretty filling for lunch, though I had to season it more to my personal liking. (I really like to season food and find that I prefer more seasoning than recipes often recommend. Blame my Southern mama.) The smoothies are really tasty and for the ~week that I tried out the service, I woke up looking forward to trying the new one each morn!

    Meal types offered: everything is plant-based, and gluten- and GMO-free; smoothies for breakfast, and soups, noodles, and bowls for lunch and dinnerWhat does it include? Pre-made smoothies ready to drink, noodles, and bowls and soups you can heat if you'd like.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This is top-rack dishwasher-safe!

    Promising review: "Got this to help with my keto diet since sometimes I'm lazy and don't want to cook. Convinced my husband to try it with me and it was a success! He even liked it! Woohoo for microwave egg burritos!!!" —Jason

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    26. Winfrey Foods Royal Relish chow chow, which is a delicious way to say a blend of veggies and spices you'll want in your mouth ASAP. If you've never tried chow chow, you are not living.

    row of three jars of the chow chow
    Amazon

    Winfrey Foods' delicious concoction is based on a 1930s family recipe and is made small batch of a blend of vegetables and spices (so it's OK for vegetarians and vegans too!). Traditionally in the South, one eats it with beans and greens but chow chow makes a great side for a variety of dishes. My mom serves it as a side alongside all kinds of entrees.

    Promising review: "Ordered the gift pack for my friends. They loved it! I do too! I grew up on a farm in Jackson, Tennessee. This is true downhome goodness. Love it on eggs and sandwiches!" —reg marshall

    Get them from Amazon for $36.

    27. A plant-based cookbook with vegan versions of some of your favorite foods. Let's ease into it, shall we?!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Fantastic!!! I'm a wannabe vegan. I grew up on eating meat, but eat much less of it than I used to, and have weeded in more plant foods. This book makes it easy, and easier to share some with my husband who is a dyed in the wool meat eater. He's not as enthusiastic as I am, but he'll eat it....unless it's tofu! So far the BBQ Chickpea Salad with Ranch Dressing is my favorite, and this weekend I'm going to make Seitan Steaks. Also, Sam Turnbull's blog and YouTube video's are great!" —S. Horvath

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+.

    28. An avocado slicer that'll help you safely slice up that filling fruit to use as you please. (Gotta love how this green thing really sticks with you from a meal.)

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Lazy people ... Buy this! I'm new to the whole avocado stuff ... I hated trying to get it out with a spoon, etc ... I ordered this bad boy and it works like a charm, even for a newbie like me! Price is right and it works great!" —S.A.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99. Psst — if you want to make sure that the other avo half that you're saving for later stays fresh, this $6.98 avocado keeper will save its mushy hide!

    29. A truffle-infused honey to make you think "Meat who?" while you're indulging in your meal topped off with this stuff. Sometimes it's the condiments that really make a dish.

    Promising review: "Here's what you do for starters . . . slice a baguette. Add a slice of blue cheese. Toast in the oven or air fryer. Drizzle with this truffle honey to finish and impress your guests. They'll think you're a genius." —T. A.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.49.

    Into something spicy? Consider Mike's Hot Honey if you haven't already! It's a BF Shopping Team fave.

    30. A personal blender that saves you an extra step by blending it in a portable cup you can drink it from. Basically you can dump in your produce, shake it up, pop the top off, and be on your merry green, vegetarian way.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Surprisingly easy to use! The most convenient juicing appliance I have ever had. Now when I'm lazy in the morning and don't wanna wash the juicer, I just blend some veggies and fruit in the cup and take it to work." —Jessie Cui

    Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in five colors).

    31. Slim & Husky's Nuthin But A "V" Thang Vegan Pizza looks *so* good and has such a good name (like the brand's other non-vegan pizzas) that you might just convince your meat-eating dad that this is for supper. (TBH, I think it'd convince mine.)

    the vegan pizza
    Slim & Husky / Goldbelly

    Nashville-based Slim & Husky's started in 2010 by three best friends in their North Nashville neighborhood to create change and opportunities in underserved communities. It'll be no surprise that "Pizza. Art. Music” is the motto with lots of great names for their pizzas made with fresh dough and five signature sauces made in-house daily. You can visit one of their four Tennessee, two Atltanta, or Sacremento location. But they aren't just about pizza. My mouth is watering just looking at pics of the cinnamon rolls.

    Get four of the pizzas from Slim & Husky's on Goldbelly for $99.

    32. Purple Carrot – it'll feed you and then inspire you to get creative yourself with plant-based meals that'll go beyond your go-to pasta dish or burrito bowl. I've tried it and, TBH, forgot I was eating from a vegan meal plan!
