Lightlife Smart Dogs are vegan hot dogs made with plant-based ingredients that are blended with herbs and spices. These tasty dogs are free of saturated fat and cholesterol, and lower in sodium than many “regular” hot dogs. They’re perfect hot off the grill and tucked into a bun, topped with your favorite condiments. One Smart Dog contains just 60 calories, 0 grams of saturated fat, 8 grams of protein, 2 grams of carbohydrate, and 350 milligrams of sodium. (Their low carb content makes them ideal for helping you manage your diabetes, too.). Lightlife Smart Dogs are also good for the environment — the Lightlife Brand is committed to sustainable, plant-based eating and looking for ways to improve their impact on our planet.
