fake_meatIf you’re vegan, it’s a question you probably get from time to time. And if you’re not, it’s probably something you’ve wondered: Why do vegans eat fake meat? And the answer is simple. First, most vegans grew up eating meat, and since many family traditions center on food, vegan meat alternatives allow people to enjoy familiar dishes and some of their favorite comfort foods without compromising their values of kindness and compassion.

Second, most people don’t go vegan because they don’t like the taste of meat. By switching to vegan versions of chicken, fish, burgers, and more, you can still enjoy your favorite flavors without supporting an industry that treats animals like garbage and pollutes our water and air.

Even if vegan meat isn’t for you, there are plenty of other delicious sources of plant-based protein. But remember, vegan meat is just meat made from plants. Wheat, soy, and peas are common ingredients in these products, which are cholesterol-free and typically high in protein and fiber.
