I'm an athlete, is there enough protein?
Absolutely. Our Plant Meats have some of the best macros around with up to 30g of protein a serving. They're not loaded with fat or carbs either. SCORE!
Can I mix and match Plant Meats when ordering/subscribing?
That's a big YES. You can customize your order to include a little of everything or all of the variety you love best. Boost your pantry while keeping your carbon emissions low? Yes, please.
Do you ship to Canada/internationally?
Boo. Not yet. We're focusing on expanding across the US, first. Then...global domination!
What happened to your old packaging? Can I still compost it? Is it still environmentally friendly?
We recently gave our packaging an eco-friendly glow up. It might look flashy, but it's more sustainable than ever. Our new packaging is printed with 100% renewable wind-power and uses Sustainable Foresty Initiative (SFI) certified paperboard which reduced our GHG emissions, environmental toxicity, & human health burden by over 80%!
Don't forget, we're also a Certified Plastic Negative brand!
OK, but what is it made from?
Our meats are 100% vegan and made from ingredients you can actually pronounce. We use a kick-ass blend of grains and legumes to provide all the essential amino acids with a high-protein density of 18-30g per serving. Our core line of Plant Meat contains ingredients that you trust, like wheat, tomatoes, kidney beans, and chickpea flour. Our bold flavors are powered by real herbs and spices and not bogged down with gross stuff like high saturated fat, protein isolates, carrageenan, maltodextrose, disodium inosinate, or methylcellulose commonly found in other meatless products.
What’s the catch?
No Evil Foods Plant Meat is the real deal - all the flavor and texture you crave, without any of the sketchy ingredients you don't want. Our plant-based meats are free from cholesterol, saturated fats, GMOs, antibiotics, hormones, soy protein isolates, nitrates & dairy. Plus, we're all about being kind to the planet and treating animals ethically. It's a win-win-win situation. Trust us, you won't even miss the real thing. #MeatlessMadeMeaty
Would my ‘meatatarian’ dad/brother/uncle/sister-in-law/etc like it?
Hell yeah they would! And better yet, if you don’t tell them, they may not even know it’s made entirely from plants. We work hard to make sure our Plant Meats hit the mark on flavor and texture better than anyone else. If it tastes good, people of all persuasions will be happy to have our proteins on their plate. And, if it’s healthier for them and for the environment it’s a big win for everyone!
How do I use plant meats?
You can use our Plant Meats in any recipe that calls for meat. Hey, you could even add it to recipes that don’t! There’s no need to throw away traditional favorites just because you’re cooking plant-based. Cook up your tried and true recipes or explore something new, just sub Plant Meat for whatever protein the meal calls for. And don't forget to check out our recipes!
How do I cook It?
All of our Plant Meats are already fully cooked so they’re a snap to use at home. All you have to do is reheat & eat! Poor impulse control? Eat them right out of the package, you savage. Or if you’re feeling civilized they’re freaking delicious pan fried with some healthy fat (we love coconut oil!) for 3-5 minutes until warmed through and browned to your liking!
Do you have recipes?
Damn straight! Find them here!
Can plant meats be frozen?
Heck yeah they can. We vacuum-pack our meats for optimum freshness and easy storage. So stock up and pop those bad boys in the freezer. You can keep them frozen for 12 months, but we have a feeling you’ll polish them off well before then!
What is the date stamped on the outside of NEF Packages?
That’s our ‘Best By’ date! This date lets you know when our meats are at their optimum freshness and retain their best physical and/or sensory quality (hubba hubba). It is not an expiration date or an indication of safety, but rather a guide to when NEF tastes and looks its finest!
If it’s past the best by date, does that mean i shouldn’t eat it?
Not necessarily. Although the product is past our optimum freshness date, if it still maintains good sensory and quality characteristics, you may still be able to dig in! Your decision should depend on several factors, including how the product has been stored in your home and whether or not the product has a funky look/smell or is otherwise noticeably changed. If the product was properly refrigerated and looks and smells normal this may allow for consumption after the Best By date. If any signs of degradation are evident it’s best to discard the product and pour one out for the homies.
Is the Pit Boss made with jackfruit?
No. Though jackfruit often gets the barbecue treatment in the culinary world, we make our BBQ from scratch, not fruit. Ours is made with high-protein wheat flour, chickpea flour, nutritional yeast, and spices before it is shredded, sauced, and devoured (by you).
