lovehopefaith4aiden So a friend of mine shared a video yesterday about this product @beyondmeat . Being that we are are incorporating more vegan/plant based meals, I was encouraged to try it. I to do not want to eat anything made in a lab, however, since all the ingredients really are natural/plant based, I was open to it. Here's the thing...I am not a big fan of beef/burgers, etc to start...never have been which is why removing meat is not a big issue for me. When I unpacked the burger, it freaked me out a bit, because it resembled raw beef and even smelled like it..I was like uh ummmm. Again, I am not a big fan of beef, but I love veggie burgers and in reality, how much was this burger really like a beef burger? Seriously....way too freaking much like one, it was good....but it was so much like the real thing that I had to rethink eating the burger (lol). Trelas loved it and was like oh yeah...this is a game changer. I'm still a bit freaked out...for one that does not do much meat, it was so much like the real thing and now it has me questioning life😂😂. How did they do it?!

I'm going to have to try this. I had a "chicken" patty and it tasted like the real thing. I had to question it too haha

Thank you @nikiadyson for sharing about this . I have been wanting to try it but freaked out because I love burgers and that has been the hardest part of being vegetarian. Now I have to try these!😀

Yeah...I felt the same way. I was never a fan of meat so I don’t care for anything that mimics meat. I think it’s great for anyone transitioning or wants something that is reminiscent of a burger. I like what they’re doing and that it is available at more and more restaurants.

What is the base ?

Omg how funny. Before I transitioned to veganism completely I was damn near a vegetarian my whole life because meat never much appealed to me. I had one of these burgers and was freaked out also, so I'm gonna stick with bean patties, mushrooms, and jackfruit. But for vegans struggling with giving up beef, these are a godsend for sure.

@nnasar Whey protein isolate and has other natural ingredients like potato starch, sunflower oil, beet juice, etc.

@angitaparker Exactly...my husband is the perfect example. As for me, I'll keep rocking with my been patties and other delicious options such as you. Still so weird lol.

@kdacas yes I agree, like I said...perfect for my husband. As for providing more options in the restaurants, I to think that is absolutely fantastic! Good to see that these options are needed, because more people are becoming conscience of their food.
