Matchup of the Week: ‘Chicken’ Nuggets

The following article was written by Ashley Palmer.

Looking for a quick snack or a mini-meal? For many Americans, chicken nuggets seem to qualify. So what exactly do you get when you eat just four chicken nuggets? Many people may be getting a lot more than they bargained for, like unwanted fat and cholesterol.

Luckily, there are lots of delicious and healthy ways to get your nugget fix. So how do they compare? Check out the chart below to see for yourself.

McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets

  • Total Fat: 12 g
  • Total Carbohydrate: 11 g
  • Protein: 10 g
  • Cholesterol: 30 mg

Not only does McCruelty continue to slaughter chickens using cruel and outdated methods, its products are also unhealthy. McDonald’s chicken nuggets have twice as much fat and 30 mg. more cholesterol than the vegan Boca nuggets (FYI: cholesterol is non-existent in vegan foods!). And guess which has more protein? The meatless ones!

So next time you’re in the mood for some “nugs,” grab a vegan version and leave the animal flesh off your plate.

    To AMar, I find all Boca Products in Walmart, but they don’t have them all, you can try on Kroeger or in Publix, I’m sure you’ll find it there =D

    does anybody know where I can find the BOCA vegan products? I looked in WalMart, a local store, and WalMart neighborhood market and did not find them. I did find the morningstar in WM neighborhood market but like u all say it is not vegan.

    ashleyyy: I don’t believe the morningstar farms nuggets are vegan, I think they have egg whites!

    I bought a vegan brand of chik’n nuggets for our son Sam and he loved them! I need to buy them again. I loved them also. I got them at Hannaford and I can’t remember the brand. It wasn’t morning star or Boca even though we loved those also!

    Although the morningstar farms chik’n nuggets are awesome, they aren’t vegan. They have egg and milk products in them. :(
    The gardein crispy tenders are pretty good too.(I’m pretty sure they are vegan)

    mmm and the boca nuggets are so good too. Actually I did a chicken patty switch on my coworker. I offered to make lunch and made “chicken” sandwiches with boca chicken patties and soy cheese. He never noticed the difference and even asked me what brand the yummy chicken was from (he buys boca now).
