Vegan Eggroll in a Bowl Recipe

There are many reasons to give plant-based meat alternatives a try, from health concerns to environmental ones.

High-quality alternatives to animal proteins can help you reduce your saturated fat intake and improve heart health, as well as increase your fiber consumption. These products also typically use fewer natural resources and have a lower impact on the environment than the meat industry.

Different options for meat alternatives are readily available, including jackfruit, which mimics the texture and flavor of meat as well as provides nutrients and protein, and tofu, which provides both protein and amino acids along with a variety of vitamins.

If you’re unsure where to start with plant-based proteins, try this recipe!
