No matter how hard we try to be healthy, some days we just want junk food. So the next time you’re having one of those days, use this veganized list of your fast-food favorites and make it a cheat day to remember.

1. In-N-Out Double Double NO Animal Style

We’re talking two plant-based patties, two slices of dairy-free cheese, and one satisfied stomach.

2. Vegangela’s Take on a McDonald’s Egg McMuffin

Prepare this warm homemade breakfast sandwich—complete with a vegan egg—in just 15 minutes.

3. A Homemade Twist on Chipotle Mexican Grill’s Sofritas

OK, so Chipotle’s Sofritas are already vegan (and delicious!), but if you find yourself nowhere near one of Chipotle’s 2,000+ locations, don’t worry—you can still enjoy this completely irresistible blend of veggie protein and spices.

4. Like a Wendy’s Frosty, but Dairy-Free and More Decadent

Coconut ice cream = life.

5. DIY Big Mac

The next time your friends want to go to McDonald’s, just make them one of these instead.

6. Popcorn Chicken That’s Way Better Than KFC

Leave Kentucky Fried Cruelty off your plate, because this looks way more delicious anyway.

7. Taco Bell’s Waffle Taco Has Nothing on This

Sometimes you just have to treat yourself.


8. Yes, Even Chick-fil-A’s Spicy Chicken Sandwich Can Be Made Vegan

Don’t forget to use unsweetened soy milk, or you might be in for an unpleasant surprise.


9. A Filet-O-Fish-Less That Doesn’t Harm Fish

Serve with a freshly steamed bun, and you’ve got vegan junk food at its finest.

10. These Pumpkin Scones Taste Even Better Than the Ones at Starbucks

It’s breakfast and dessert in one, and your house will be filled with the smell of happiness.

11. Remember Panda Express’ Orange Chicken?

Warning: This is dangerously addictive.

The next time you see a new meal at a fast-food restaurant that you just can’t wait to try—veganize it! It’s fun, tasty, and humane. And whenever you eat fast food, know that there are plenty of yummy plant-based options and there’s never a need to consume unhealthy meat and dairy “products” to satisfy your taste buds. As with any fast food, remember to eat these dishes in moderation as part of a healthy lifestyle.
