A New Product -- Beyond Chicken

When trying to switch to a plant-based diet, it helps to prepare familiar recipes. Here is something to help you do that with all your chicken recipes! 

Keep in mind, meat substitute "products" should be TRANSITIONAL foods, meant to ease you into a plant based diet, as these strips are not a WHOLE FOOD.

Beyond Chicken is a brand that makes meat-like products out of veggies, with a pretty friendly ingredients list, relatively small number of ingredients! I've found it at Target, and Heinen's (a local grocery store). I have only tried chicken strips. The other products look promising and it's fun that the company is looking to provide a healthy option for athletes.

An Old Product and a New Recipe
Frank's Red Hot Sauce

I literally salivate when I think about this sauce! I'm sure there is some interesting science behind that, but anyway :) It's got a pretty awesome ingredient list, except there is salt, so use hot sauce to help you eat more of the healthy foods, that you might not eat cabbage for example.

Frank's Red Hot Sauce

Try this recipe:

Vegan Buffalo "Chicken" Slaw: bag of shredded cabbage (or shred your own cabbage and carrots), 2 cups cooked brown rice, 2-3 Tbsp Frank's Red Hot Sauce, 1-1.5 Tbsp Vegenaise (vegan mayo), mix together and enjoy! Tastes great at room temperature or heated! Also great with Beyond Meat chicken Strips!

Also try Chicken Artichoke Casserole, BBQ Chicken Pizza, and recipes coming soon: "Chicken Broccoli" Pesto Pasta, and "Chicken" Enchiladas. Really, with a chicken substitute, the possibilities are endless! Let me know how you use it!
