As a cook and former carnivore, Ryan Bauhaus was sick and tired of frozen, processed faux meats. He wanted fresh stuff to work with, so why didn't it exist?
Thus, the idea for Atlas Meat-Free Delicatessen was born. Bauhaus dreamed up his own fake meat product, dubbed vegitein, which he'll soon be selling to meatless eaters across South Florida. The new spot, at the Yellow Green Farmers Market in Hollywood, will sell "meat" by the pound, plus made-to-order sammies, sides, and all the other trappings of a legit deli.
