Someone told me about this company called “Beyond Meat” which uses plants to make synthetic meat, and I’m really super impressed! I tried one of their products called “Beyond Burger”, and it looks and tastes just like I remember beef burgers being, but it has no meat at all! And they even have it with the same texture, I honestly wouldn’t have known I’m not eating a beef burger if I wasn’t already aware, and they use beet juice to even make it red and “bleed”.
If you’re not eating meat but miss things like hamburgers, I totally recommend this, it’s amazing!
(No I’m not at all involved with this company, I’m just ecstatic lol!)

That looks tasty! I am not a vegetarian, but do like many vegatarian foods. I have looked and found it is available in the UK, and Tesco supermarkets do have it listed, but the stores do vary their products. When I next go I will have a look. Thank you Mamie.February 23, 2019 at 12:06 am #199660
I’ve actually tried one of those about a month ago without even knowing it until now! It was very good!
I knew it was a plant-based patty, but I didn’t realize it was made of something I could buy at the grocery store. I might just have to get a couple of them to put in the freezer for future burger cravings.
Every once in a while, I would get a vegetarian dish…just because. I’ve had Smashburgers made with black bean patties which are pretty good as well.
Not too long ago, hubby and I went to a really nice steak house in Pueblo which served some gluten-free and vegan dishes. The Avocado Chocolate Pudding sounded interesting to me, and it was delicious!February 23, 2019 at 9:14 am #199665
I’d like to try one myself! They do look tasty.February 24, 2019 at 8:28 am #199680
No GMO? No Soy?
I would give this a go. I hate soy products with a vengence, they really are not good for the planet or our bodies but this sounds much better.. I havent seen them here yet but I will keep a look out thanks for the tip.February 27, 2019 at 7:48 pm #199736
I wouldn’t go out of my way to eat such a burger, but – again – they do look tasty and I’d definitely try one!March 3, 2019 at 2:45 pm #199826
I do feel that vegetarian food has improved over the years. I write this because my brother is a vegetarian and eats very well. It isn’t just quorn anymore: vegetables and flavours have all advanced. Plus, even meat eaters eat lots of veg these days.
An interesting thread!March 3, 2019 at 11:16 pm #199851
Oh yes, I do feel vegetarian food has really come such a long way. I love what science is doing, making things more accessible to everyone. I had another one of these last night for dinner, they’re so tasty!

I am a vegetarian and oppose consuming murdered animals. I am happy to see alternatives like this being developedMarch 13, 2019 at 9:03 pm #200006
