Have you tried any plant-based food lately? If so, you're not the only one! A lot of meat-eaters are attempting a 'flexitarian' diet or a Meatless Monday to minimize their consumption of meat and dairy. Business Insider reports that plant-based food sales have grown 11% this past year, and it's not just vegans and vegetarians; meat-eaters are helping with those sales. Some markets have embraced items like the Beyond Burger and Impossible Burger. Both brands mimic the texture and flavor of beef.

Here are some places near the Lansing area that offer plant-based burgers if you want to give them a try!

I've had a few plant-based burgers before, and I will say, they're pretty good. However, if you do decide you want to try one just to say you did it, you do have to do it with an open mind. They're not going to taste exactly like the real thing, but they're pretty close. Flexitarians are the biggest part of market growth. If you didn't know, that's someone who is trying to minimize their meat and dairy intake. Business Insider reports that in 2019, the industry hit $5 billion and a recent report predicted that the market could be worth $74.2 billion by the year 2027.

If you've tried a plant-based burger that's not on the list and thought it was great, let us know!
