You know that vegan food is better for animals, but did you know that it’s also better for you? Vegan versions of traditional meals are usually lower in calories and fat, and they always contain absolutely no cholesterol. We’ve matched up five traditional American foods against widely available vegan versions. Read on to see which came out on top.

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
