For those of you who are vegan, the majority of the Viva Glam Magazine staff included, it can be very hard to find delicious vegan options at restaurants and at your neighborhood grocery store. With 21+ meals in a week, there’s only so many times you can have a salad at each meal and there are only so many protein options out there for vegans. So here is one of our favorite brands that we love to eat on a regular basis, (myself included even though I’m not vegan).
Nate’s is an amazing and affordable frozen brand that is great for everything from an evening meal with your friends, appetizers for your dinner party, your kids’ lunch, or for your weekend meal with your family. Nate’s has seven delicious options: Nate’s Meatless Meatballs in Classic, Zesty Italian, and Savory Mushroom, and Nate’s Mediterrean Bites in Kale, Garlic and Pesto, Sweet Potato, and Southwestern. For a frozen brand, the sodium and fat content are both really low, unlike the majority of most frozen prepared meals or bites, so it won’t make you bloat or mess with your healthy lifestyle.
For recipe ideas with the Meatless Meatballs, try classics such as spaghetti and meatballs or a meatball sandwich. Or get inventive and try an Italian Wedding Soup, sliders, or cut them up into your macaroni and “cheese.”
For recipe ideas with the Mediterranean Bites, add a few “bites” into your favorite pita bread, add hummus, and you’re good to go! Or, try adding them
into a salad or sandwich, or just snacking on them as is! Enjoy!
