Meat is so 2017.
The hardest obstacle for meat eaters is giving up all your favorite meat foods. Because I mean who the hell wants to give up cheeseburgers?! well great news! with the rise of the amount of people who now consider themselves vegetarian or vegan, comes the supply to that new demand and some really innovative meat alternatives which will make you start asking “With all these great new options, whats the point in still eating meat?!” Here’s my top six meatless alternatives (that will make you forget you’re not eating real meat!)
1. The Best Cheeseburger Alternative
The Beyond Meat Burger is one of the beast beef alternatives out there. Founded by Ethan Brown in 2009 and hitting Whole Foods store shelves in 2013, the patty became an instant hit. The 100% vegan patty contains 20 grams of protein and has no soy, no gluten, no GMOs, zero cholesterol, and half the saturated fat of an 80/20 beef burger. The best part about this burger is that it has that meaty texture and juicy flavor that makes real beef burgers so tasty! Click here to locate stores in your area who sell it.
2. The Best Traditional Hot Dog Alternative
The hot dog, one of the most important staples of the American diet, is still able to be enjoyed by those who have given up meat. Created by LightLife , a company founded way back in ancient times…1979. The dogs are made from common meat alternative ingredients like soy and pea protein. The result is a hot dog with the same texture and taste as the real thing. Find out where to pick em up by clicking here .
