Veggies? Do you eat all your veggies? I know I don’t. Mainly because I am not a fan of veggies. And should I eat veggies, they must be frozen veggies. Morning Star Farms – a meatless alternative makes products that are veggie protein based that contain a lot less fat and calories than the traditional meat products we eat.
I recently had the opportunity as a BzzAgent to try the product of my choice. I decided after looking at all the products stocked in the freezer case to go with the sausage links. We love to have sausage for breakfast and I often make biscuits and gravy for dinner. My hope was that my family and I would like the product as much as I do pork sausage.
I must say, I was pleasantly surprised at the flavor and texture of the sausage links. My daughter – well, she wasn’t so happy when she made herself a couple in the microwave. But when I added the sausage to a supper recipe – she had no idea that the sausage was Morning Star Farms. And, no one else who ate my dish had any idea either 🙂 The sausage color actually reminded me of other frozen sausage products on the market. The texture was more condensed than other frozen sausage. The taste – they had a bit of a bite to them, as most sausage does, and I had no idea they were made from veggies.
Would I buy these again? Absolutely. Considering the calories saved as well as the fat savings – I know I am doing my body good. Often times, low calorie products contain artificial sweeteners – this product hasn’t any. This is a real good thing, as I will never put anything in my body that has an artificial sweetener in it (you can read why here). I’m actually thinking I’d like to try the maple flavored sausage patties next. My guess would be that my daughter wouldn’t even know what I was giving her with her eggs and pancakes.
Morning Star Farms doesn’t just make breakfast items. They make burgers, veggie dogs, Chik’n (nuggets, wings, patties) entrees, and meal starter kits. Meatless Monday’s is Morning Stars Challenge. Their challenge is for you to eat no meat on Monday – the day most people get back to better eating.
