Beyond Chicken Tenders are now on sale for $2.99 or even $1.99 at the Grocery Outlet. Almost indistinguishable from chicken nuggets in taste, but far superior in terms of sustainability and ethics.
I picked up my favorite vegan bacon, Sweet Earth’s Benevolent Bacon at the Grocery Outlet for $2 (normally around $5). Vegan, partly organic, fairly minimal packaging – 4.0 Green Stars.

Modern Kitchen cream cheese is made with vegan whey protein produced by food-tech company, Perfect Day. I’ll review two varieties on sale at the Grocery Outlet and also profile the brand for sustainability – 4 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.
A few kinds of Good Planet cheese can be found at the Grocery Outlet. I’ve tried the shredded mozzarella and hot pepper cheese slices – both decent. Good Planet cheese deserves 4 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.
You may find Miyoko’s cheese wheels at the Grocery Outlet, if you’re lucky. I liked the Smoked English Farmhouse but preferred the Black Ash – they exhibit a level of sophistication that has been lacking in vegan cheese. Miyoko’s Creamery gets 5/5 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.
Miyoko’s European Style Cultured Vegan Butter raised the bar in the vegan dairy space. In terms of taste and texture, it’s my favorite vegan butter. Miyoko’s Creamery gets a perfect score of 5 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.
Explore Cuisine makes a range of high-protein pastas from organic legumes and other sustainable ingredients like Spirulina.
