Have you ever looked into the big eyes of a sweet, gentle cow? It’s hard to imagine that anyone would want to harm such a beautiful living being. But unfortunately, many cows are raised for the sole purpose of being slaughtered for beef. Before they’re killed, they’re often branded with hot irons and males’ testicles are ripped from their scrotums (often without painkillers).

Sweet-Cow-Face

But guess what? Helping cows is easier than you think! Instead of buying dead animals’ body parts when you go to the store, choose vegan alternatives. The following products are available at many grocery stores as well as online. In the mood for a burger? How about some jerky? No problem! These vegan meat options will blow your mind:

Gardein

Gardein makes vegan ground beef, sliders, meatballs, meatloaf, and more! This stuff is so convincing that you’ll easily fool your meat-eating friends. Be sure to grab some patties for your next barbecue.
