The following five vegan products are fun food finds that I'll be keeping within reach in my kitchen.
1. Tribe Origins Zesty Spice & Garlic Hummus
Hummus is a staple in my kitchen, and though I enjoy making it myself, Tribe's garlic hummus gets two thumbs up in taste and, of course, convenience (no food processor to clean up). A one-fourth cup serving comes in 140 calories and 4 grams of fiber. Wrap it up in a whole grain tortilla with roasted peppers and spinach or eat it right out of the container with a spoon.
2. Dr Praeger's Tex Mex Veggie Pockets
Need a tasty lunch or dinner that is not only quick to the table but also easy to wrap up and eat on the go? These flavorful veggie pockets are a healthy handful of beans, peppers, onions, zucchini, spinach, peas and whole grain goodness. Each pocket weighs in at 150 calories and 5 grams each of protein and fiber. Best yet, they are ready in under 10 minutes.
3. Kashi's Black Bean Mango Frozen Entree
This may be the only vegan frozen entree from Kashi, but it's a fast, tasty, and healthy choice when you don't have time to cook. Boasting 7 grams of fiber, 8 grams of protein, and 340 calories, the entree is made of Kashi's special blend of whole grains, black beans, spicy vegetables, and a fire-roasted mango sauce.
4. Turtle Mountain's Purely Decadent Cookie Dough Non-Dairy Dessert
The gluten-free, dairy-free answer to dessert indulgence. This vegan "ice cream" is made of vanilla coconut milk, yummy cookie dough chunks and crispy chocolate flakes all swirled into a cool, creamy, ultra-satisfying treat. Unlike regular ice cream, each serving has a whopping 5 grams of fiber (and 190 calories).
5. Santa Cruz Organic Raspberry Chocolate Syrup
Try this tasty, certified organic, chocolate syrup drizzled over dairy-free yogurt and ice cream and garnish with fresh raspberries. Yum! At 55 calories per tablespoon, you can easily budget a delicious dose of vegan chocolate into your diet.
