First, let me say that I am not a vegetarian. And I am not a vegan. I am an equal opportunity eater who is determined to raise conscientious eaters with a love of good food and healthy food! There, I said it! In general, we don't eat many processed foods; we avoid high fructose corn syrup and foods with artificial flavors and colors; and we try to eat local and organic as much as possible. We also talk a lot about at almost every why we eat certain foods and why we don't eat others. We discuss making choices and ones that will fuel our bodies and minds. The choices we make can affect how we look and feel!
So while I'm not a vegetarian, we are eating less meat as a family. So, I was excited when offered this opportunity with Moms Meet to try Lightlife Smart Dogs.
In 1979 Massachusetts-based Lightlife was founded with the goal creating great tasting vegetarian fare. They consider their products "Meat without the Middleman" as the foods look like meat though they don't contain any meat
• Lightlife’s Smart Dogs, America’s top selling meatless hot dog, are plant-based and ready for the grill.
• Smart Dogs are certified vegan and verified with the Non-GMO Project.
• Smart Dogs have 7 grams of protein while Jumbo Smart Dogs have almost double that with 13 grams of protein.
• All Lightlife products are refrigerated and can be found in the produce, dairy, or natural section of your grocery store.
Lightlife and Moms Meet sent me coupons to try whatever products we wanted so I was able to pick up a variety of products. I grabbed both the Smart Dogs and the Smart Sausages Italian for this review.
The Sausages were yummy and totally grill worthy! With the traditional italian flavor, these would be a great addition to your favorite pasta or pizza. We decided to grill them up with peppers and onions for a delicious alternative to the usual suspects. We really enjoyed them!
I'm not usually a hot dog fan but my husband was eager to try these. He thought they were tasty and similar to a regular hot dog when topped with his favorite relish and mustard. A great, healthier alternative to your favorite dog. He went back for #2 so they were enjoyed for certain! We also checked out their delicious recipes like the one for Grilled Franks with Sesame Apple Slaw above, find it here!
