"eat mor (vegan) chikin"

new to eating plant-based foods?

are you looking for just a meatless meal or two a week?

are you having a hard time figuring out exactly what to eat?

do you need something fast?

do you miss your fast-food favorites?

drive-thru your kitchen for this easy, amazing treat!

a spicy chicken sandwich from wendy’s or chick-fil-a was my favorite fast food item. occasionally i get a craving for my old favorite. eating plant-based doesn’t mean i have to give up any of the taste.  i just re-create a harm-free version of my old fast food favorites.  you can, too.

everything for this recipe can be found in your local health food store and some general grocery stores, too.   being vegan means you read the labels, once, in the grocery store.  once you figure out what’s what, it is really, really easy. 

TIPS: when reading labels, be aware that vegetarian doesn’t mean vegan.  watch for milk, other dairy products, and eggs. if you want specific stores or brands that i prefer, email me through the website!
