Mr. Cool is a meat eater but he is gradually incorporating a lot of vegan option into his world. This is partly because his wife and many of his friends have turned vegan but mostly because some of the vegan options today are just so delicious that he doesn’t feel like he is sacrificing! Beyond Meat has come up with a product that looks, tastes and acts like ground beef in recipes! When you cook it, it even gives off the same red color (from beets). The taste is just like your favorite burger! We have had family and friends that couldn’t tell the difference!
In addition to the great taste, it is free of GMOs, soy or gluten. It also packs 20G of plant (peas) protein in each serving. The company notes that they worked on developing this burger for over 7 years – it paid off! Again, you don’t have to be vegan to incorporate this into your meal plan. I’m going to be sharing my recipes but you can also find some great ideas on the recipe section of the Beyond Meat website. I only use the Beyond Burger patties at this time.
Check out the athletes on their website that they highlight that choose plant protein. VeggieGrill serves the Beyond Burger on their menu. The patties are available at most Whole Foods. They retail for close to $7. You can also find them on AmazonFresh, Safeway, Vons, and Ralphs. To find out where you can purchase the patties, please visit their store locator.
