"They have vegetarian burgers."

"You can have my fries."

How many times have vegetarians and vegans heard this line before? This scenario happens in restaurants, at family members' homes, at friends' parties and outside during holiday gatherings.

Of course in neighborhoods where veganism and vegetarianism are more common the food options are much better. But as with anyone who isn't sure how the food will taste, it's always a good idea to have a backup plan, and Lightlife provides it with their vegan sandwich "meat."

Lightlife deli options include Smart Deli pepperoni, which is a great topping should the office order vegetarian or cheese pizza. Other Lightlife options include Smart Deli bologna, Smart Deli roast turkey and Smart Deli ham. Grab a few slices to create a veggie sub or sandwich. The Smart Deli bologna is even scrumptious enough to sizzle in a skillet for fried bologna in the morning.

Eat the vegan meat with or without sandwich spread. The three vegan "meat" options are tasty enough to eat plain with crackers and vegan cheese, too. And the next time another party happens with no vegetarian food, make sure these vegan slices are on hand.
