A Fridge Full of Meat! *Lightlife Giveaway*

CONTEST CLOSED Caroline of East Bay Dossier won with her near empty fridge! Thanks y’all for playing!

This might be the biggest giveaway we have ever done at VeganMoFo HQ. It’s pretty exciting that Lightlife, the makers of so many wonderful vegan products, really get what the vegan month of food is all about! They are offering one lucky person an entire fridge full of Lightlife meat alternative products, that is 23 items in all and every vegan products that they make.

I absolutely love their products, I get their flax or garden tempeh nearly every time I go to the store. Their Fakin’ Bacon is probably the easiest tempeh product in the world to work with, just heat and eat.Lightlife seems to have a real presence in mainstream grocery stores now too. I seem to be able to find smart dogs and smart ground just about everywhere. The smart ground is so versatile, you can use it in simple dishes like spagetti with meat sauceor you can take it up a notch and cook it with spices or use the mexican version to make tacos or empanadas.The smart Chick’n or Steak Strips are perfect to throw into a quesadilla or top a big salad with. They also have a bunch of different lunch meats like bologna, ham, and turkey if you are trying to make fantastic deli style sandwiches. I like to top them with pepperoni and recreate the “El Italiano” of my youth but Cuban sandwiches are fun too! They have breakfast sausages, barbecue, chili, and basically every American meat that you can think of.

Just imagine having every single product they carry! You could make just about any standard American fare in seconds, like nachos with the works.Here is the list of everything the winner will receive.

·         Smart Dogs
·         Smart Dogs Jumbo
·         Tofu Pups
·         Smart Deli Bologna
·         Smart Deli Ham
·         Smart Deli Pepperoni
·         Smart Deli Turkey

  1. Kelly says:

    I’ll post the photo of my fridge later. It’s a lone vegan shelf sandwiched between the oppressive presence of omnivore roommates. Quite tragic, really. Smallest fridge ever, too.

  2. YOWZA!! that IS a super great contest! 😀

  3. Sophie says:

    My fridge is pretty bare right now (shopping this weekend) but oh well! haha


  4. Jennifer Licata says:

    Pick me! Pick me! My food would love company – here’s always room for Fakin’ Bacon and his friends. :-)

  5. Sara Wolff says:

    Would love to win this. My family loves lightlife products.

  6. Heather Johnston says:

    I love lightlife products! And I promise you those crisper drawers are empty. I don’t use them because if I can’t see my food I forget it’s there. That’s why all my Tupperware is clear. :)


  7. omfg WANT!

    Here’s a pic of my fridge, which *looks* pretty packed – but I’m sure I can find room for all those goodies, most of which will probably go right into my belly anyway.


    If not, there’s plenty of room in the freezer, which is normally stuffed with Lightlife Smart Bacon, Pepperoni and Breakfast Links anyhow. We order ’em by the case & our local natural foods store gives us a discount!

  8. caroline m. says:

    the contents of my fridge. a bit sad.


  9. Cara Tillie Messer says:


    I doubt it is the most pitiful, but it can be fuller, if you get what I’m saying.

    I had to be in the pic to hold the door open, and looks like my husband sneaked a bottle of blue cheese in the door. ahhh :(

  10. Joanne says:

  11. Emmy says:

    My fridge is sad looking:) My family is new to the vegan scene and were having some troubles finding things my 5 year old and 16 month old will eat. Moreso my 5 year old who wants to eat nothing but cheese and chicken nuggets:) . We are looking for meat substitutes that she will look at and say ” Hmm well it looks like what Im used to eating..” So far she has learned she loves tofu so thats always a plus!:) We are still looking for hot dogs, corn dogs, and lunch meats she can happily eat in her school lunch. This would help us out GREATLY with this new leaf we have turned over !!

  12. Kristin says:

    My fridge is sad and empty and my husband and I love, love, love Lightlife. Its our favorite thing, we love making “turkey” and SmartBacon sandwiches, and tacos and…


  13. Shane Brady says:


    This is where we store some of our vegan meat, in our pantry fridge. We also have a kitchen fridge, and a separate freezer. We sometimes have more vegan specialty items in our fridges than our local grocery store.

  14. Emmy says:

    Ooookkkkaayyy take three!:).my apologies for my lack of html knowledge:)


  15. Kim says:

    I love Lightlife products and it would be amazing to win all of their vegan products to try (I love their tempeh so much)! Unfortunately I don’t have a digital camera and my cell phone is really old and bad-quality, and even if I could take a picture I wouldn’t know where to host it, so I hope it’s okay to just describe the inside of my refrigerator for an entry. I’m actually living with my (unfortunately non-vegetarian) family right now, but I have a shelf in the fridge to myself that I keep completely vegan. I need to go to the store pretty urgently because the only thing on my shelf right now is a honeydew melon and some water. Thanks for having such an awesome giveaway!

  16. Amber says:

    Wow, I would love to win this. My photos a bit blurry but you can get the idea.

  17. Beth says:


    I need to go produce shopping. At least I have kale.

  18. sarah davis says:

    OMG I would love to win! Here are my fridge pictures as well as blog post about it –
    Sarah at realtorsd.com

  19. Christine says:

    My fridge photo is posted on my Facebook wall:

  20. Libby M says:

    Our fridge is also on my Facebook wall:


    Yes, there is a few bottles of beer in there, but when you are in rural cattle country, and home of beef and coors, you have to stock up when you can. Would love to win! We felt lucky since the store carries tofu……..

  21. If I won, it would really make the rest of MoFo exciting, in a stressful kinda way…:-)


    Great giveaway!

  22. Becca says:

    I didn’t have enough space to move back far enough to show the produce drawer or the door of the fridge

  23. Chelsea says:

    I am way too lazy for this contest.

    • Cara Tillie Messer says:

      That was my initial thought, but then I realized walking 15 feet to the kitchen was less trouble than driving to the grocery store. It’s worth a try…. right!!??

  24. Micah says:

    This is amazing! I live in a collective house with five other people, three of whom eat meat, but will try (and love) anything I make. We’ve had lots of omnivore approval of Lightlife’s ground beef and sausage, and if I win this contest, our whole house will get to try everything!

    Per Vegan MoFo rules, I didn’t photograph any animal products in my fridge; I cleared out the omnivore groceries, and look! There’s a TON of room in the fridge now. Wouldn’t it be lovely to fill up all that space with tasty tasty fake meat?

    Lovely indeed.

    Here’s our fridge!

  25. veganlinda says:

    Painful to show, but the kids are pretty into these contests now. This is empty for our family of five. CSA day is tomorrow and farmers’ market day is Saturday. We have an extra freezer so no worries. :-)

  26. Stacy says:

    So, I thought taking a pic in black & white would be less damning but I actually think it looks worse. There are a few omni items in there since my husband is omni but there is plenty of kale, fruits, veggies, etc. See that nice large space I cleared in case I win. pic: http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c145/bronzebed/DSCN0750resized.png

  27. Brett Marlow says:

    I’ve got St. Germaine, some maraschino liqueur, and a lot of condiments that would love to be all over Smart Dogs. Help a busy professional out and stock my fridge with these amazing vegan goodies that I yelp with excitement at when I have the chance to grocery shop! “Oh my God! They carry Smart Bacon! We’re getting IT!”

    Look at this poor fella: http://26.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_ltdqaqUHP91qms7imo1_500.jpg

  28. Kimberly says:

    Trying again since it doesn’t seem the first one when through http://www.flickr.com/photos/kiboda/6263898695 .. yea food!

  29. came home at lunch and JUST took this photo!! :) (I’m also having fun looking at everyone else’s fridges – what is it that fascinates us so?)

    this is a FANTASTIC giveaway, I have plenty of room for all of these great yums:


  30. Stephanie says:

    I share this fridge with my nonveg family and I know that we could make room for all those yummy products! Plus we have a fridge in our garage with some room if we need it.


  31. Kelly Dyer says:

    Best giveaway ever!! Wow! Check out this fridge- you can tell by the lack of produce how close it is to farmers market day.


  32. Kelly R says:

    I share a fridge with four omnis (hence the Velveeta and Bud Light). The only thing it needs is more fake meat!


  33. Done! http://imnotstarving.blogspot.com/2011/10/inside-of-my-fridge.html

    *there are a few nonvegan (but vegetarian) items shown – the husband spent a year in Afghanistan, so I don’t deny him a teeny tiny bit of fridge space 😀

  34. Gloria Kersh says:

    I know it is full now, but I really love Lightlife products and only some of them can be found where I live. Those few items are at different stores requiring multi store visits. I would LOVE to win this so I can try all of these awesome products. I know not everything you will see if vegan, but some peeps in the family aren’t vegan. I cater t everyone’s needs and wants.


    I promise to have/make room if I am the LUCKY winner.
    Thanks for this opportunity!!!

  35. Haley says:

    this is a sad, sad fridge….she needs lots of lightlife products to cheer her up!!!


  36. Stacey says:

    Right now I’m actually thankful for the spilled baking soda that forced me to wipe down the inside of my fridge last week! Looking nice and sparkly!


  37. Kerri says:

    Believe me, there was no product placement here…it’s exactly as I found it, My 3 year old loves the deli slices so we will surely make room for those and all the other yummy products!

  38. Kerri says:


    That would be me above, unable to figure out how to do this, nor delete a previous post. Sorry!

    Believe me, there was no product placement here…it’s exactly as I found it, My 3 year old loves the deli slices so we will surely make room for those and all the other yummy products!

  39. Pingback: Lucy takes over the fridge.

  40. Nicole says:

    Wow, this giveaway couldn’t have come at a better time! I found Lucy, our 19 year-old, vegan wiener dog, camped out in the fridge. She’s demanding vegan meat and holding the beer hostage! Help!


  41. Jenny says:


    My family of 5 would LOVE to win this! I “like” Lightlife on facebook now, too.

  42. joyfulgirl says:

    My fridge: http://www.flickr.com/photos/joyfulgirl415/6264631641/
    (Please excuse the non-vegan items! I love with several omnis.)

  43. Miranda says:

    Here’s the inside of our fridge! I also included the outside and our pantry, just for funsies. I’d absolutely love to win this giveaway – we’re pretty well stocked but love Lightlife products and never have enough! :)


  44. Judy says:

    My super empty fridge–seriously it’s the end of the week and I’m running out of food…I could use some Lightlife products to fill it up!

  45. Lightlife! Im a poor college student, eating at the dining hall :/ Fill my fridge please! It’ll make my tummy and the environment happy :)

  46. http://thesaucycoconut.blogspot.com/2011/10/my-fridge-vegan-mofo.html

    My sad, empty fridge. Grocery shopping tomorrow! (But it would be so happy to be filled with Lightlife products!)

  47. Rachel says:

    I just got home and realized I’ve left my camera at work (sigh). My side of the fridge will have two empty shelves as soon as I make my pear cake this weekend! So, lot’s of room for Lightlife! And honestly, a good portion of that would go to my work fridge, which is nearly empty. Definitely in need of some veggie meat products :)

  48. Kelly says:

    As promised, my little bitty shelf in my little bitty fridge with my omnivore roommates’ stuff encroaching on my space:


    A look at my entire kitchen, sort of (you don’t need to see dry lentils, I hope):


  49. Dawn says:

    I envy anyone who has a working light bulb in their fridge. Light for this photo brought to you by a flashlight shone overhead. Just went grocery shopping yesterday, so pretty well stocked, (though you can’t see the side door):


  50. Mandi says:

    Here is my fridge…looking a bit empty. Lots of condiments waiting for somethin’ to love! http://creaturelessfeature.tumblr.com/post/11718141542/over-at-the-mofo-hq-there-is-a-giveaway-lightlife

  51. Angela says:

    In my defense, I’m a college student with a minifridge that my roommate uses too!

    Better’n Peanut Butter, Apple Butter, So delicious coconut milk yogurts, applesauce, strawberries, quinoa salad, diet coke. Not shown: strawberry jam :)


  52. Lisa says:

    This is embarrassing, but anything for free stuff! http://instagr.am/p/Q2IwX/

  53. Elle says:

    I couldn’t get the door in the shot with adequate lighting. We’re vegan for medical reasons, and Lightlife products are a family favorite. The contents of the refrigerator are vegan (and I really need to go shopping, yikes… it’s been a busy week).


    After taking the photo, I took the black mug (bergamot tea – stuck it in the fridge before swimming class!) and the green storage container (leftover acorn squash!) and decided to reheat both for a night snack. Thank you!

  54. Kristin says:

    fridge and freezer full to the brim! But i know I could DEFINITELY make some space for some lightlife products!!!

  55. Wow, so glad I just saw this! Snapped my photo and shared a few captions. 😉

  56. Alec says:

    Here’s my fridge!
    Plenty of room for some delicious, fake meat!

  57. Laura Beth says:

    I am sadly on chaperoning a field trip for my seniors! So, I decided that I would take a picture of the hotel fridge because it’s all I have! And I found some apples and grapes at a farmers market nearby, which is the only things I brought here to munch on. It’s a stretch, but here’s hoping!
