Banza

It’s the chickpea pasta we love in a creamy, plant-based cheese sauce. The Banza Plant-Based Mac features a dairy-free cheddar cheese powder ready to be mixed with non-dairy milk and vegan butter—don’t mind if we do. The nutrient-dense mac and cheese contains over 12g of plant-based protein, making it a satisfying choice. Word on the street is that Banza recently launched a Plant-Based White Cheddar Mac exclusively at Whole Foods Market and online platforms.

@vegcentricdietitian

During her studies to become a registered dietitian, Anja—a longtime vegetarian—transitioned to a vegan diet. Living in Kalamazoo, Michigan at the time (Go Broncos!), she met Maggie and Tammie through VegOut Kalamazoo (one of VegOut’s first focus cities) and began collaborating with the duo. When she’s not writing about new vegan eats, practicing as a pediatric clinical dietitian, and virtually coaching fellow plant-based eaters, you can find her creating veg-centric recipes, trying new cruelty-free products, and spending time with her partner Addison and cat Kovu.
