If pigs had udders like cows and goats and sheep there would be shelves of the stuff.

Remember when saturated fats and corn syrup were good for you and eggs and butter were killers. Maybe this faux meat won’t turn out to be like margarine but maybe it will. And this is why some people are reluctant. Me I’m just cheap. Top round is $2.50 a pound, how much is mystery meat ( can you buy it at the grocery?)

This is the closest to an actual explanation to what the ‘Fuck Steven Burst was talking about with just about every single one of his fantasy books (Taltos series, Sethera, Khaavren, etc.), great series, but man I never had a clue what he was talking about with this stuff. Thank you for this. Considering that as a kid Read more

I can only eat it if they add meat-based iron in some form (severe anemia, yay), which kind of defeats the whole purpose.

I think for now, I’m just going to stick with my normal plan. I eat meat, do my best to find ethical when possible and when I want to eat less meat I... drumroll please.... Read more

Genuinely curious here - how is the jury “still out” on whether beef or fake beef is more environmentally friendly?

“First and foremost, it has to taste the same as the animal-based equivalent, or at least on par with the flavor they’re used to. Next, the cost has to be the same as what they pay for meat” Read more

Agreed. I tried going vegetarian as a kid, and all of the faux meat products were awful. I drew the line at tofu taco meat and gave up. I couldn’t lose taco night. Then in high school I traveled around China for a month. I had no idea that actual Chinese food was nothing like the American Chinese food I’d grown up Read more

I can afford to stop eating beef, but so far, and I’ve tried about all of the various burgers and ground beef substitutes and none of them tastes remotely like meat. I see/hear ads for them and once in a while, a new one comes out and it’s always the same thing, it doesn’t taste like beef, it just doesn’t. Best Read more

Do vegetarians buy them? I’ve only seen them when the meat-eating host of the cookout thinks they need something for vegetarians. Here’s a lifehack for them - grill some veggies, then you don’t have to deal with sad cold veggie dog leftovers.

What do they do to the plants to make them Meat-like?  Perhaps all the finagling renders (!) the plant as evil as actual meat.  Tell me what you do to soybeans to make them look like ground sirloin and I’ll listen.

As a vegetarian, I honestly do sometimes. It’s been like 15 years, and once in a while, I want a damn cheeseburger without eating an animal. That being said, I agree with you entirely. There are plenty of vegetarian foods that will fill you up, give your palate a hug (or a kick if you prefer), knock you out for the Read more

I use inexact rule I call the 20% rule. I got it from the public health world. If they want the public to do a thing, like cut down on salt intake, it works sort of like this. 20% of people will do it as soon as they hear the advice in the news or on Good Morning America or whatever. 20% of people will do it once they Read more

I have a simple rule......I try not to eat things when I am not entirely sure what they are. Needing a lab to spot the differences puts it pretty high up there you know?

Good!  I’ve been saying for years that the most awful thing about the movie Julie and Julia is that it robbed the world of a full length exploration of Julia Child’s fascinating life.  It’s about time that was corrected.  I will definitely be watching this.

I’ve eaten enough variety of Impossible products to be swayed as far as flavor and texture. It’s simply down to cost for me at this point. Read more
