It will just be a matter of time before they discover that these pretend meat products are harmful in some way to human consumption.

I'll stick to the real thing.

I like eggs real eggs. All this processed stuff they are calling food can’t be any good for you. The latest stuff about diet and health is sleep, water and unprocessed food. Pretend meat and eggs don’t really fit 8O

You know that thick gel you get when you open a can of red or white kidney beans?

That's all this is. You can add some Xanthan gum, whip it, and it cooks like eggs. All protein and fiber.

Yep, I guess we'll just start calling shit whatever we want to call it now. Vegetables are eggs. vegetables are meat.
I mean, when you think of the stuff people put on a burger, seems that a plant based burger would make all that a bit redundant. "Would you like salad on top of your veggie patty?" Might as well eat a friggin' bread sandwich.

It's not healthier compared to some other processed burger patties:

Quote:
A Beyond patty contains 270 calories, five grams of saturated fat and 390 milligrams of sodium. In comparison, Walmart's Great Value Beef Burger has 30 fewer calories and two more grams of saturated fat. It also has 300 mg less sodium, but it's not pre-seasoned like the Beyond patty.

I don't buy burgers at Wal-Mart, preferring to make my own burger patties, but that gives you an idea of how 'healhty' they are.

It's fast food. 'Healthy' isn't the point. Tastes good, fulfills the need to eat meat, less cruelty to animals, and better for the environment is the point.

Plus, what other burger will give you that much protein with so little fat? ;)

We make our own as well. Lean beef, egg, bread crumbs, and seasonings.

I rarely eat a burger anywhere else, with the exception of the occasional White Spot burger. I also haven't eaten any "fast food" for a few years now.
