National V-licious Cold Cut Day

Cold cuts. Few things seem less V-licious than cold cuts. But if you’ve not checked out the market lately, you will be amazed when you do! So give some of these products a try, and celebrate a compassionate National Cold Cut Day!


Tofurky Deli Slices

Soon after these were introduced many years ago, I found them in the local co-op. As soon as I tried them, I hopped on email and wrote to a friend: “Stop whatever you are doing, go to the co-op, and get boxes of the Tofurky Deli Slices!” Twenty minutes later, he wrote back: “HOW DO THEY DO THAT?”

Note: Be sure to try the pepperoni as well!




Another company that has been around for a long time, Yves is reaching into new areas with Falafel Balls and Kale and Quinoa Bites.


Field Roast

A relatively new player in the cold-cut market, Field Roast has taken the compassionate eating market by storm with their sausages (especially the Smoked Apple Sage) and Celebration Roast. They are now also making plant-powered cheeses.



A staple for many longtime vegetarians, Lightlife especially shines with their ground Gimme Lean Veggie Beef and Veggie Sausage. I’ve known a number of moms who have replaced ground cow with the Veggie Beef, and their families didn’t notice any difference!
