Recently I found my way back to the vegan/plant based lifestyle. I decided to completely cut meat out of my diet, and cut out eating dairy & eggs (with a few situational exceptions like traveling or ice cream that I just NEED to have). I’ve been feeling much healthier, happier and my recovery from my car accident has been a whole lot smoother.
This time around, I wanted to make sure I became plant based sustainably & for life. I have stumbled upon some goodies that definitely make this easy for me. A while ago, my close friend & I were walking to our favorite coffee shop in Echo Park, and stumbled upon a little bodega fully stocked with amazing vegan snacks. We came across Unisoy vegan jerky & decided to give it a try. I had tried vegan jerky in the past & quite honestly was not a huge fan. They were always so salty, had a strange texture & were overall not healthy for you in the slightest. When I’m snacking I tend to reach for a healthier option that leaves me feeling light & satisfied simultaneously.
Unisoy was a total game changer for me. They currently have three flavors Teriyaki (my personal favorite), cracked black pepper & mild spicy. My friend & I demolished that whole bag in one serving. The texture is perfectly chewy & flakey. And it tastes absolutely amazing! I am honestly a huge fan of some good meat replacements. They appeal to my omnivore boyfriend & I often find myself becoming protective of my little vegan jerky. Unisoy has become a staple my snack arsenal & I always keep it stocked in my pantry.
Also upon looking at the nutrition label, the sodium content is very low in comparison to other vegan jerkys. They have a very low amount of fat & are high protein which is great if you’re seeking good macros for a little snack. They’re TVP (textured vegetable protein) based which gives them that lovely meat-like texture.
Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, or an omnivore, I promise you will love Unisoy vegan jerky. If you’re looking to try it, you can shop online or find them in health food stores. I want to hear your feedback to see if you all are as obsessed as I am! Please leave comments, email or DM me on instagram.
