LightLife is a company that makes food better for you and better for the environment. This one could easily fit into my get healthy event or earth day event. The company conserves lighting and uses warm lighting instead of white for their plants. They also compost and are trying to lower their emissions. Additionally, in case you didn’t know, beef is the single food with the greatest potential impact on the environment! So, they grow vegetables which are much nicer to our environment. I recently had the opportunity to try an assortment of LightLife Veggie Food. LightLife makes tons of different veggie products. They make veggie ham and cutlets. They also make my favorite product, veggie bacon!
Bacon is delicious. However, I started limiting my intake of regular bacon long before this post because it is so bad for you. I have been eating turkey bacon whenever possible, but I hadn’t tried veggie bacon before. This smart bacon contains only 20 calories per serving and 1 gram of fat! Wow! Talk about being better for you and the environment. The bacon looks quite similar to regular bacon and it tastes pretty good! Yay!
All of the LightLife products look similar to the real products. They also have a similar texture, smell, and flavor. Granted, the cutlets don’t taste exactly like chicken. However, they are really close to it. In fact, I couldn’t tell a difference between chicken mixed with rice and vegetables and it mixed with the cutlet!
