Lightlife Smart Dogs - A Better Way to Barbecue

This year, my teen daughter decided she wanted to become a vegetarian. I completely support her decision, but my other three kids want no part of it. Making family meals that we can all enjoy has been a challenge, but with Lightlife Smart Dogs, at least barbecues will be covered. Lightlife Smart Dogs have all the flavor you crave from a traditional hot dog, with one big difference. They are completely meat-free! These protein packed dogs allow vegetarians to enjoy summer barbecues along with everyone else. Just top them off with your favorite condiments, and even a seasoned meat lover may not be able to tell the difference. Lightlife Smart Dogs are a delicious meal the whole family can enjoy.

In addition to being vegetarian friendly option, Lightlife Smart Dogs are also certified vegan, and Non-GMO Project Verified. So fire up the grill and give the whole family a barbecue to remember. Lightlife Smart Dogs are the #1 Meatless hot dogs for a reason! These plant-based dogs are ready to grill right out of the package. Each one has only fifty calories per link, so even if you aren't a vegetarian, but are looking to cut back on calories, these dogs could be the right choice for you.
