223: Eat No Evil (Foods)

Sadrah has never actually eaten meat. Mike was in the punk scene, where “compassion to all” was a popular mantra. Together, after struggling to find plant-based meat sources that were as sustainable as they were tasty, they came up with No Evil Foods; the plant-based meat alternative company that first debuted at a tiny Farmer’s Market in Asheville, NC.

Today, No Evil Foods is available coast-to-coast and leads the pack as the most environmentally sustainable plant-based meats on the market!
