BENEFITS OF EATING GREEN SLICE

Everyone who walks through a garden or hikes a mountain ridge can see not just greenery but the very elixir of life that the plant world has given us. Vegetarian or not, we want to change the way you think about food, and abandon the idea that you have to eat meat every day.​

Are you a full-time carnivore not ready to give up meat? Green Slice makes a plant-based diet more appealing and accessible with vegetarian and organic hot dogs and deli slices that still have the meaty, savory taste, and look and taste great!​ Kickstart your Flexitarian journey (a flexitarian is a person who has a primarily vegetarian diet but occasionally eats meat or fish)  with Green Slice and start building a mindset that promotes healthy eating habits for the rest of your life.

PLANT BASED:
A diet based on foods derived from plants, including vegetables, whole grains, legumes and fruits, is one of the best things you can do for your health and the environment. Multitudes of studies have demonstrated that health benefits increase as the amount of food from animal sources in the diet decreases; even the federal government recommends that we consume most of our calories from grain products, vegetables and fruits. Besides wanting to live longer, healthier lives, people are drawn to vegetarianism or flexitarianism by all sorts of motives. Some of us have a desire to eat in a way that avoids excessive use of environmental resources. Others have made the switch because they are concerned about animal welfare, the use of antibiotics and hormones in livestock, and are ethically opposed to eating them.​​ ​​Cutting back on meat (even a little bit) can reap big health and environmental benefits!

ORGANIC:
Green Slice is made from organically grown plants and organic eggs, and does not contain any synthetic ingredients, artificial colors or flavors. Free of harmful chemicals, bursting with more nutrition and sustainable sustenance – Green Slice is a direct vote for immediate health and the hopeful future of generations to come.

NON GMO:

We do not contribute to the genetic modification of vegetable and grain species, and our organic foods do not contain any synthetic ingredients, artificial colors or flavors.

MEAT FREE:
Our meatless hot dogs and deli slices keep our animal friends safe and happy, and Green Slice is low in fat and calories – especially in comparison to lunch meat and hot dog counterparts. Reducing your meat consumption also reduces cattle’s toll on the environment.

SOY FREE:

Avoid the high amounts of phytoestrogens and lectins in soy-based products that can be harmful to your body, and almost all soybeans grown today are genetically modified. In addition, soy’s widespread use is destructive to the planet.​

DAIRY FREE:
People follow a dairy free diet for different reasons, but for most people, they’re searching for relief from digestive issues, bloating, skin problems and respiratory conditions that come from eating dairy products.

GREAT TASTE:
Our plant based deli slices and hot dogs still have the meaty, savory taste, and look and taste great. It’s the easy way to eat right!
