#ad Since chicken is so versatile, we incorporated it into so many of our dishes while growing up, not unlike many of you. It blends nicely into meals while adding protein and texture. Since going plant-based, it has not always been easy to find products that compare in taste, texture, and value. That is, until now. I am so excited to have discovered Improved Nature – a sustainable, clean, plant-based version of the chicken we loved, without the guilt! There is so much to love about this one-ingredient product made from non-gmo soy that is packed with protein and fiber while being low in fat with zero cholesterol or gluten.

Today’s dish is a Mexican-inspired taco recipe where I used Improved Nature Prime Shreds. From shreds to poppers, nuggets, tenders, and filets, you’re sure to find any style and texture you’re looking for from this brand. Visit to learn more and order yours today! Enjoy!
