How to enjoy Planted Foods Products?

Treat our chickpea "tuna" just like tuna. Yup! Simply add diced celery, onions, and condiments to a bowl along with a packet of chickpea tuna and mix together. Place your mixture between two slices of bread, lettuce, and tomato and voila'! 

To really get fancy, you can use our chickpea "tuna" for veggie crab-less cakes or to pan fry for your next fishless taco! Check out our recipe page for more ideas.

Our nacho sauce is all natural so you'll want to heat in your microwave in 15 second intervals while stirring. Cashews are high in protein so when you need a good meal and a boost, make yourself a big bowl of nachos! You can use our dip on just about anything from fajitas to sliders and beyond. 

Our thick creamy nacho sauce is perfect for cooking with veggies like bell peppers or jackfruit. The uses are endless.

Note from the Founder/CEO

I'm Ashley Kirk and I founded Planted Foods in 2018 out of a desire for truly healthy food. In 2016, I reached a huge milestone in my career but with that, came stress. I found myself exhausted and unmotivated with daily migraines and anxiety. After living like this for months, I had to make a change. I spoke with my physician who recommended therapy or medicine. Neither were attractive options in my mid- 20’s so I began doing my own research. That’s when I stumbled upon a plant based diet. With nothing to lose, I skeptically dove in and changed my diet.

Within a week of being plant based, I experienced increased energy, mental clarity, and virtually eliminated my migraines. I felt the best I ever had! The only downside to my dietary change was the massive learning curve and very time consuming meal prep. After months of being vegan, the meals became repetitive and uninteresting. I searched for ways to make eating healthy convenient and simplified. Alas! I found a host of prepackaged vegan meat and cheese substitutes and stocked up!

I ate vegan meat substitutes for days and realized I did not feel the same. I felt lethargic and off balance when I consumed faux meats and cheese. While these foods saved me time, I didn’t understand why I didn’t feel the same eating vegan sausage as when eating kale. If they are both from plants, why doesn’t it feel the same? That’s when I began reading the ingredients- I found terms like xanthan gum, vital wheat gluten, potassium chloride, and soy lecithin- not to mention the high sodium amounts! Many ingredients were so heavily processed and engineered; it was hard to find the FOOD in the food.

I went into my kitchen and started making the food I wanted to eat and creating various recipes. I took classic recipes and put a twist on them! I made yummy meals- from sweet potato sliders to my infamous chickpea “tuna” I started sharing my meals with friends and family. Watching them enjoy my creations and considering a healthier lifestyle was exciting to me!

That is when I realized, I was happiest when I was helping people eat well. I wanted to share my passion on a bigger scale. That's when Planted Foods was born. Our products are made with the intentions of providing whole hearty ingredients with labels that are clean and clear. I hope that I inspire others to take a chance and follow their passion.

Happy Eating,

A.K.
