Its no secret that we are big fans of plant-based eating here at Wildway. It’s why all of our low sugar breakfast and snack foods are also made with 100% real, plant-based ingredients. No fillers, not ever. In fact, numerous studies back up our claim that eating more plant-based foods is a must for better health. One study showed that eating a more plant-based diet was associated with reduced body weight and lower incidence of certain chronic diseases.
Not all plant-based and vegan foods are the same though. Refined white flour and refined sugars of course are vegan and vegetarian friendly (and technically plant-based), but are practically void of nutrients. There’s a reason why white flour, white bread, and many traditional cereals have to be fortified with nutrients—they don’t contain much to begin with. Your best bet is to stick with foods that provide nutrition from, as we like to call it, 100% real-food ingredients. Here are 6 quick and easy vegan snacks anyone can make to get more plants in your diet.
