Best store-bought healthy vegan snacks

There are approximately 79 million vegans in the world and approximately 9.7 million people who follow a vegetarian or plant-based diet in the United States. And these people are looking for healthy vegan snacks.

A new study titled Power of Meat Report showed that self-identified meat eaters increased from 85% to 71% in 2020. There has been a surge of new vegan food products to meet demand. Adopting a vegan lifestyle has never been easier.

Even if you consume animal products, you can slowly but gradually reduce your intake. Check out these vegan snacks the next time you go to the grocery store.
