Plants on the Plate
These days, plant-based meals are becoming commonplace—even among meat eaters.
People may try plant-based eating out of concerns about nutrition, environmental sustainability, animal welfare, or the financial cost of meat–but they’ll only make it a habit if they enjoy what they eat. At Kellogg, we take pride in serving up all kinds of delicious options. From grains to our MorningStar Farms® products, 99% of our portfolio is meatless.3
Many of us may be interested in trying plant-based meals—but no one wants to compromise on taste. Luckily, MorningStar Farms® has made it easy to switch up your favorite breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes without missing the meat.
Substitute MorningStar Farms® foods for everything from breakfast sausage to ground beef patties, pulled pork, and chicken nuggets. Morningstar Farms® is the #1 leading plant based protein brand in both retail and food service in the US.8 Taste it to believe it.

Pile on the Protein
When people are considering a plant-based diet, they’re often concerned about getting enough protein without meat. However, thanks to the lentils, soy, and whole grains in our recipes, many MorningStar Farms® foods provide at least a “good source” of protein. Soy has the highest protein content of any vegetable with lentils coming in close at second place.5
Hold the Cholesterol
Plant-based meals tend to be lower in cholesterol and saturated fat than meat-based meals.4 Choosing plant-based proteins lets you enjoy satisfying favorites such as delicious burgers, BBQ, and breakfast sandwiches in exciting new ways!
