Beyond Meat is truly the future of protein: http://beyondmeat.com/about
Here is their mission statement:
We believe there is a better way to feed the planet. Our mission is to create mass-market solutions that perfectly replace animal protein with plant protein. We are dedicated to improving human health, positively impacting climate change, conserving natural resources and respecting animal welfare. At Beyond Meat, we want to make the world a better place and we’re starting one delicious meal at a time.
As you all know by now, I love meat! However, I am always open to trying new things and discovering healthy alternatives to my current food repertoire.
The products are 100% plant protein – burgers, chicken, beef meatballs & crumbles. No, they do not taste exactly like meat, but they are close enough. And with protein compatible to actual meat consumption, I would say these are a fantastic alternative to some of our favorite highly caloric foods!
The recipes are simple and outstanding: http://beyondmeat.com/recipes
You can find Beyond Meat at Whole Foods and now Walmart! Vegetables never tasted so good.
