Since the beginning of this year I have been eating more healthier and have honestly thought about becoming vegetarian but since I cannot expect my entire family to follow suite we have made it a point to have more meatless meals during the week.

During the warmer months we love having barbecues and hotdogs are always my kiddos favorite. This Summer though I’m ditching the hotdogs and feeding my family “Smart Dogs” from Lightlife.

This past weekend we had a birthday party including a barbecue and served the Smart Dogs to our family. I couldn’t believe how realistic the Smart Dogs looked like regular hotdogs. I have to be honest I have tried plant-based products before and most I didn’t like at all. These Smart Dogs though taste really good. I couldn’t even tell that they are meatless. Pretty much everyone else enjoyed the taste of them as well. I love that they are only 50 calories but also contain 7 grams of protein!

I’m glad that these were a big hit for all of us and will be definitely purchasing more and checking out their other products as well.

All Lightlife products are refrigerated fresh and can be found in the produce, dairy, or natural section at your local grocery store. The Smart Dogs retail for $2.99-$3.99 a package.

    Barbecuing is something that we love to do in the summer months. These Smart Dogs are indeed interesting and we are going to have to try them. Thanks for sharing these non meat hot dogs.

    This makes it look like you are most certainly ready for grilling season.

  • Franc Ramon

    The smart dog looks really tasty. It would be nice to try a meatless variety which is healthier.

  • April Mims

    We have meatless meals at least a couple of days a week. I would prefer to be vegetarian but the rest of my family likes me so I like to have vegetarian options for myself.

  • Jeanine

    I love grilling season! It’s one of our faves, but this looks so good. I’ve never heard of Smart Dogs before. I would love to give these a try, that salad looks amazing too!

  • Amanda

    We make a lot of hot dogs during the summer so I will be sure to check this new brand out. There is nothing better than grilling outside on a beautiful day with friends and family.

  • Alli

    I don’t eat hot dogs at all because of all the junk in them, but I crave one every once in a while. This would be perfect for me. And the fact that they only have 50 calories is amazing. I’m going to look for them when I go grocery shopping.

  • Breanna

    Yum! My kiddos love hot dogs. We try to limit their intake, obviously, but they are a very popular summer food! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  • Jeanette

    I have never heard of this brand. I am not vegetarian, but I am looking to eat healthier with less calories!

  • Pam

    These look like a great option for any vegetarians or vegans at summer cookouts. It’s great to have options for people who don’t eat meat.

  • Katrina |

    Those look just like regular hot dogs. I would have never guessed they were meat free,.

  • Robin (Masshole Mommy)

    Both of my boys are hot dog fiends, so I will definitely be getting some of these to grill up for them this summer.
