Although a diet based on whole foods is best, sometimes it's nice to have a quick and easy alternative to the foods we used to enjoy before we were aware of the consequences of eating animal products. These tasty treats make transitioning easier for some, but should be consumed in moderation due to the higher sodium content of processed foods.
