One inquisitive omnivore’s journey towards healthier and more compassionate eating…

(Click here for why I started)

(MEATLESS/VEGETARIAN) I was looking for something quick and easy to snack on, something that would satisfy my junk food craving without all of the fat and calories.

MorningStar Farms Chik’n Nuggets were recommended to me a while back, so I figured I’d give them a try. The only problem was the grocery store was all out.

However, the store did have MorningStar Farms Buffalo Wings.

As I mentioned in an earlier blog, I’m not a big fan of the Buffalo-flavor, but since I’ve had such good luck with MorningStar in the past, I thought I’d give them a try anyway. Besides, my friend Michelle was joining me and she loves Buffalo wings—at least the meat version.

The verdict? I still don’t like Buffalo wings. But that’s probably a good thing for true Buffalo wing fans. Michelle, on the other hand, thought the “wings” were delicious and described the texture as meaty like chicken, but not gristly.

“With wings you get those tendons and they’re fatty, so you’re always picking around them. You don’t have that with these, and their taste is right on par with real Buffalo wings.”

So two thumbs up from Michelle, and since she’s the real Buffalo chicken wing connoisseur, I’d definitely recommend them to any Buffalo wing fan looking for a high protein, low-fat, meat-free snack alternative.
