Beyond Meat and Impossible

Beyond is made from Peas, not soy.

And IDGAF what you heart attackers want to say, it's not dog food and the burgers are good.

Have at it, I'm not saying you shouldn't eat vegetables. I'm saying, eating less meat will not make you healthier. I'm certainly not saying eating MORE meat will make you healthier either. Moderation in everything.

However, cutting meat out of your diet entirely will leave you missing quite a lot of proteins, vitamins, and minerals you can't otherwise get unless you take a bunch of pills and shots for some (Vitamin B12 apparently has very little vegetable sources). I have known a few vegetarians that either acknowledge that you teeter on the edge of unhealthy because of the lack of nutrition; 1 started eating meat again, another gets a B-12 shot at a clinic once a month and has to take a lot of other vitamins.

I'm not even saying that you or anyone else shouldn't be a vegetarian/vegan or that they can't be healthy. I'm all for it. It's your life, your body, your choice. By all means, more meat for me. I'm just against the distortion that less meat is healthier or that vegetarianism/veganism is healthiest diet.

American diet is garbage, but I think most dieticians would argue it has much less to do with meat vs vegetables and a whole lot more to do with sugar. If i were to cut out one thing from a diet to make myself healthier, sugar would be it.

Very well put.

Everything in moderation. I actually don't like beef much. Never have. I don't like chocolate either.

I agree to a point. The ground up plant stuff you substitute for ground beef is actually really good if you're putting it into a pasta sauce, sloppy Joe or chili. A couple times when I've found it on clearance and it was cheaper than the real ground beef, I've bought it and used it in those applications and no one even noticed (especially if you sprinkle a little beef bouillon over it) Buy the actual hamburgers, while leaps and bounds better than original veggie burgers are still nothing like a good burger.

Ground beef these days is either really expensive or cheap because they throw cheap cuts and cut it with a lot more fat..

honestly, it just shows that this community is very much the same as all the other internet ones. Boneheads upvoting stuff they feel is correct or resonates with their pre-existing beliefs and condemning stuff that doesn't. this is a particularly sad case because it's so damn easy to disprove and the people are shitting on a perfectly valid and healthy way to live.

And nobody can understand why I despise conspiracy theorists so much.

You write any stupid thing without evidence that supports them, they'll believe it for the rest of your lives. Give them ten reams of evidence that disproves something and they'll just scream at you.

Thank you, Pede.
