Last week I picked up a pack of Protein packed Meatless Plant Based Meatballs. Meatless Monday has become a thing in our home. Normally it’s just for me and my husband. The kids are usually not interested.

Plant based meat is typically made from whey protein or extracted plant protein, spices and other binding ingredients.

Most plant based meat is similar to real meat in terms of calories, but has more fiber and lower cholesterol.

This Vermicelli Bowl consisted of plant based meatballs.
