Whether you call them faux meats, meat alternatives, or vegan proteins, lots of vegans are on a constant quest for the next greatest cruelty-free addition to their recipes. FakeMeats.com is a great source that you may not have heard about yet.

To start this review off, let me tell you a little bit about the founders of FakeMeats.com, and what they’re on a mission to do. Steven and Kim, vegan and vegetarian respectively, started Fake Meats so that people who were looking for cruelty-free alternatives to their omnivorous ways could find a treasure trove of faux meats very easily. As most of us have come to know, vegetarianism is not about restrictions, and this site proves that you can make your favorite family dishes the vegan way without sacrificing taste!

As far as the selection goes, Fake Meats has everything from vegan jerky to egg substitutes as well as quite a few seasonings & sauces and even a Meal Pack subscription service. The Meal Pack subscription sends you original recipes written by Steven and Kim each month so that you can try new vegan products with confidence and know that they’ll turn out delicious. The Meal Pack includes a recipe and the Fake Meats ingredients for four dinners. Each recipe feeds 4-6 people, so you’re set for at least 1 dinner each week for the whole family. They also ship to USA and Canada.

For the Vegan Cuts Fall Harvest eBook, we showcased Steven and Kim’s Thai “Chicken” Curry, made with delicious soy curls that hail from the Pacific Northwest as well as Edward and Son’s vegan Curry Seasoning Cubes. The only extra ingredients that Meal Pack subscribers need for this dish are the fresh produce and coconut milk, which are easy to find. Convenient and delicious? Yes, please!
