vegan seafood

Vegan shrimp, lobster, and tuna, oh my! All your old favorites are still an option when going meat-free. Have you tried out any of the vegan seafood available today? For some reason, this is an often-overlooked part of the plant-based alternatives market.

Seafood has such a specific taste, smell, and texture, you might be skeptical about testing out a substitute. Let us reassure you it’s worth taking the plunge. Being that our fragile oceans are suffering the consequences of overfishing and pollution, there’s never been a better time to try it.

If you’re not sure where to start, here are our top picks for each category of vegan seafood.  We’ve also ranked them based on their nutritional profile, so you can choose the product that best suits the needs of your vegan lifestyle

Lower Calories & Source of Omega-3s
