A new study from the American Dietetic Association (ADA) stacks the nutritional value of six vegetarian holiday roasts side-by-side with turkey. The ADA found that all the meat alternatives were excellent sources of fiber and protein—the Tofurky roast actually offered more protein than turkey—and they were low in saturated fat and cholesterol. The only disadvantage to the faux fare was high sodium levels. The ADA also noted that the meat alternatives were much quicker and easier to prepare. Of the six veg roasts analyzed, four were vegan-friendly.
