Don’t Knock Vegan Meat Until You Try It
I'll be the first one to tell you, I've never had any plant-based meat as of yet. Why? Because I don't want to be disappointed if it doesn't taste like real meat.
However, I've talked to quite a few people who tell me the same thing, you really won't notice any difference. And they might be right, I am willing to give it a try.
According to the Lansing State Journal:
A subtle revolution is taking place in Foods For Living's frozen food section. Meat alternatives are creeping in. Plant-based meat has surged in popularity at the East Lansing grocery store over the last few years, frozen and dairy section manager Ben Green Said.
Two of my family members eat plant-based meat and absolutely love it. The main reason they enjoy plant-based over all, because it's healthier than eating standard red meat.
It seems that most people don't really care about where their food comes from and yet others like to get information about what's healthy to eat and what's not so healthy to eat.
Lansing State Journal also tells us:
Roughly 41% of Americans said they were likely to buy foods that look and taste like meat but are produced artificially, according to the 2021 Michigan State University Food Literacy and Engagement poll. In 2018, only 33% of people said they were likely to buy it.
I think my wife should go to the grocery store and buy plant-based meat, and then prepare a surprise dinner and just not tell me that the meat is plant-based. That way if I can't tell the difference, maybe we'll make the switch to vegan meat too.
