With two little babies (are they toddlers now?) running around, it is so difficult to prepare quick meals for myself. That is why I was super excited to try Alpha Foods 100% plant-based burritos.
Although I am definitely an omnivore, I actually do enjoy plant-based meals regularly. Coupled with the fact that these are quick, easy to prepare, grab and go meals, I was curious to see if the taste was also a good match for my busy mom life.
Alpha Burritos come in four different varieties: Philly Sandwich, Chick’n Fajita, Pizza and Mexicali. I was able to pick up all of the flavors except for Mexicali from a local Walmart. Unfortunately, when I went they were out of Mexicali, despite the fact that I looked on the store locator to make sure that all four varieties were available. They were not! Sad face.
The burritos can be prepared by microwaving or baking them in the oven. I tried both ways. I found microwaving made the tortilla soggy, so I actually popped the burrito in the toaster oven to give it a slightly crunchy exterior.
My favorite variety was Pizza, followed by Chick’n Fajita, then Philly Sandwich. They were very flavorful with excellent spices, and I did not miss the meat or dairy. The “meat” is soy-based, so they are not appropriate for those with soy allergies.
While taste and convenience are the most important features for me, some additional pluses about the Alpha Burritos include:
- Free of animal products
- No cholesterol
- GMO free
- No artificial preservatives, hormones or corn syrup
- 11 grams of protein
- between 300 and 320 calories per serving
