Lightlife Smart Dogs


Who loves hot dogs and burgers? I know I do! I love to grill during the summer, and my family loves gobbling up whatever I bring off the grill. I was excited to see what they thought of Lightlife Smart Dogs, the veggie hot dog.

As a Moms Meet Ambassador, I had the chance to try this great product. Who doesn’t love a hot dog topped with all the fixings? Enjoy the Lightlife vegan dogs on your favorite bun. When it came to the taste test, these passed! My kids didn’t think twice. I topped the hot dogs as usual and they ate two! Yes, hot dogs may be thought of as a summertime food, but you can feel good about enjoying these dogs year-round. Lightlife Smart Dogs are plant-based and high in protein, but do not lack in the flavor department. Don’t be scared by the word veggie… these really do taste great!


Protein is made of a combination of 20 different amino acids, nine of which (essential amino acids) our bodies can’t make on their own. To be considered a complete protein, a protein source must contain all nine of these essential amino acids. Animal protein sources naturally contain all nine of these amino acids, and many plant proteins sources do too. No need to worry about missing out on protein if you’re reducing or eliminating meat in your diet, as there are many great sources of protein that come directly from plants!
Vegetarians and vegans can get enough protein in their diets eating Lightlife® products, or through a wide variety of other plant-based foods. And those who eat meat can let their systems take a break from the acidity and saturated fat of animal protein, allowing their pH levels to find a more alkaline state, which helps combat inflammation, reduce stress and protect bone health.
