It’t National Vegetarian Month! Today on CBS WSPA-TV Your Carolina, I shared plant-based meals and snacks.
Bada Bean Bada Boom is a roasted broad bean brand that makes high protein, high fiber vegan crunchy bean snacks. Enjoy them on their own or incorporate into recipes. The Boom Box showcases all 13 flavors ranging from sweet to savory like zesty ranch and sweet cinnamon – you can find them at BadaBeanSnacks.com.
Another crunchy snack is individually packaged pickled veggies and pickle cuts by Oh Snap Pickling Company. They are refrigerated, perfectly seasoned and have no brine added so you can conveniently take them on the go with no mess. They are also gluten-free, fat-free, keto-friendly and made with non-GMO veggies.
Contrary to popular believe, protein can be found in plant-based foods too, not just meat. The NEW protein pressels are a game changer in snacking – now you get a classic snack you love with the protein you want. They have 5 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber per serving from red lentils, white beans and green peas. Great for athletes, students, busy moms, you name it.
Finally, when it comes to building nutritious plant based meals you want to focus on veggies, a plant-protein, whole grain and healthy fat. Pair stuffed sweet potatoes with black beans and guacamole or veggies roasted in a plant-based oil with whole grain quinoa and tempeh.
