Washington -- More and more people concerned about the cruel
treatment of animals on factory farms and in slaughterhouses—along with the
artery-clogging cholesterol and saturated fats found in animal products—are
increasingly trying out delicious vegan versions of their favorite foods. That
includes the ever-popular BLT. There's been a revolution in mock meats: Many
are now so good that they beat the animal-based versions at their own game.
Nowhere is that more evident than at Washington's Sticky Fingers Bakery,
which PETA has just named in its survey of the top 10 vegan BLTs
in the U.S.
Located on Park Road in Columbia Heights, Washington, Sticky
Fingers Bakery offers a BLT that's more of a culinary triumph than a sandwich:
crispy tempeh (made from soy) bacon, lettuce, tomato, and Vegenaise piled high
between two slices of bread. Grab a premade, ready-to-go sandwich, and you'll
forget about meat-based bacon the second that you take your first bite.
"Sticky Fingers Bakery proves every day that a
delicious BLT doesn't have to cost a pig 'an arm and a leg,'" says PETA
Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "All our picks are winners because
they're leading the charge to satisfy America's growing hunger for humane,
healthy, and Earth-friendly foods."
First place goes to DC Vegetarian in Portland, Ore.,
and Darbster in West Palm Beach, Fla., has grabbed second place.
Rounding out the top 10 are Spiral Diner & Bakery, with locations in
both Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas; Yorgo's Bageldashery in Norfolk, Va.;
Seattle's Highline; San Diego's Loving Hut Mira Mesa; the Green
Owl Cafe in Madison, Wis.; Seva in Detroit and Ann Arbor, Mich.; and
Sugar Apple Natural Foods in Key West, Fla. Garnering honorable mention
is the Bouldin Creek Café in Austin, Texas.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
