When you're simply swapping in faux chicken nuggets, beef crumbles, and hot dogs for the meaty versions, you’re still eating a lot of fat, salt, and even sugar. “There are healthy ways to make foods that resemble the animal-based foods you once ate,” says Haynes, like black bean burgers, Jackfruit “pulled pork,” and Tempe bacon. “You just have to make sure that the ingredients used are all whole-food ingredients. A lot of the pre-packaged foods like soy dogs, faux bacon, some veggie burgers, etc. are made with ingredients that are probably even worse for your health than the real deal ‐ meaning the meat it’s trying to replace,” she explains.

Much better to eat the fruit as is, or opt for fresh vegetable juice instead;
