    Beyond Meat Cookout Veggie Burgers. Any thoughts on this? I list the nutrition label-

    Title: Beyond Meat Cookout Veggie Burgers. Any thoughts on this? I list the nutrition label-

    So has anyone tried this?

    They taste pretty good (almost like a real burger), and you have to actually cook it (no microwaving), so it's not processed

    I think they may use tomatos and some beans in there as they do get bloody

    Here's the basics of the nutrition label:


    8 servings per container
    (serving size: 1 patty)
    22 grams of total Fat
    0 (zero) Trans fat
    4gs of polyunsaturated fat
    9 grms of monounsaturated fat

    and is this may be the most important number: 0 zero Chloresterol

    any thoughts on this?

    Still healthy?

    Thanks in advance

    This may rely upon soy as the protein source. That might or might not be a problem, depending on which article you believe.

    Also, "refined" may be a synonym for "processed" and thus isn't something you want to see in a health food ingredient list

    I prefer what's in the picture below, but it's not processed pseudo- meat.I just don't trust that process yet. It's just the way I'm wired.

    Getting ready to sear some leeks and asparagus now.

    A lot of my reservations are based on what Cy posted.

    What did they do to make the veggies have the meat/beef flavor and texture.

    Also, unless you have an issue with out of control lipids, not all fats are necessarily bad. Trans fats/ hydrogenated oils, I try to minimize.

    For the people that like it and are satisfied with it, I congratulate them and "More power to them"!

    Setting phytoestrogens aise, One more thing concerning soy content is my body just doesn't tolerate soy very well.Soy based shakes? That's an almost immediate trip to the crapper.

    Edit: I did try BKs Invisible Whopper or whatever it was and have tried the soy based breakfast sausage. It had the usual result. An instant demand to hit the toilet.

    Every so often tofu ainít that horrific, but wonít touch the alternate meat stuff because red meat (preferably rare) & killer seafood just canít be beat. On a somewhat related note, grilled my first peach over the summer & was shocked how good it was.

    I really don't have a problem with vegetarians or vegans (not my thing). What I have a problem with is that they're using this crap right now normalize not eating meat. In fact if you go to restaurants now, a lot of times instead of saying "meat" at restaurants, they're calling it "protein."

    As time goes on and this fake meat crap becomes further normalized, it'll have a growing presence at stores and menus until meat is "the alternative." And then eventually, you won't be able to get real meats.

    But yeah, if I went to a BBQ and they were only serving this fake shit, I'd probably skip eating and stop at a fast food place on the way home.

    That's the weird thing, I can occasionally eat (and enjoy) tofu grilled alone or with steamed veggies on the side and I have no problems. Edamame? I occasionally eat a serving or two.

    Maybe it's the methylcellulose they cram in some foods? It's pretty much a disguised laxative.

    I love my Edamame pods that I steam in the microwave. Iíd prefer a huge bowl of chips honestly, but those are getting to be a decent replacement.

    We found this place close to the Phoenix airport going buy the thousands of positive reviews. The cheddar cheese and pepper grits were life changing & that smoked brisket was the best I had ever eaten ever. Weíre buying a small smoker to sit on top of the grill.

    They've got their brisket pretty well nailed! The didn't trim too much fat before smoking ( that's bad manners and loss of pure flavor), color is right, and the bark looks good.

    Smoking brisket and take some time, but is well worth it!
    The whole plate looks good, but brisket is one of the BBQ world's "tell-alls" about the skills of the pitmaster. I think beef ribs are the next in line.

    Like I said in another post. If being a vegetarian or vegan is so good why do they try to make everything taste like meat?

    Thats because like everything else the government wants to control everything. Most small businesses are a thing of the past also. Most are now franchises. Ive been saying for over 20 years we need a big meteor to hit the earth and take out our governments so we can start over.
