I've heard calorie etc wise, its the same or even a bit worse for you then normal meat. But its much better for the environment, and some of the only options veggies have
if one were truly a strict "veggie" this would be off limits to them as it's cooked on the same grill as the meat patties...bathing lovingly in the sweet meat juices.

To be fair nobody is going to fast food places for health reasons. I didn't not like it but it had an odd taste that stayed for a while after that I didn't enjoy. I found there was so much other stuff that I couldn't really taste the fake meat part. Definitely does not taste like beef.

I've done numerous tests and beyond meat always came on top.

BM vs frozen patty
BM vs fresh homemade patty
BM vs other plant base burgers

My wife and I always found the beyond meat burger came out on top! It's pretty insane considering I would never make or buy a vege burger in past, never ever.

Now we've basically replaced our burger meals with beyond meat (1-2 times a month in the summer).

No regrets (it just tastes better) but it is roughly 2x more expensive than making your own beef patties.
Any suggestions on where to buy BM patties at a reasonable price? Last time at Sobeys it was 8 for 2 patties

Beyond meat is a super processed food item. Typically the more processed a food item is, the likelier it is bad for health.

Not saying it's a bad product, but the spin that it's healthier than the traditional alternative is not really true, and it's long term health impacts are still unknown.
It's super processed because they're trying to make plants taste like meat. If so many people (myself included) weren't a bunch of whiny babies and could stomach a different flavour for health/planet reasons, it wouldn't have to be so processed.

to be fair, some people are easily fooled into many things....including believing this is a much "healthier" choice.

Is it healthy
I’m not taking my chances with this Frankenburger fake ass shit. I tried one when they launched. It was decent going in, not so much the next day coming out. Fake wannabe meat (that even bleeds), created by scientists in labs. No thanks! I’ll stay with my 100% grass fed beef burgers that are made with one ingredient, not a ton of oils and other garbage I don’t even know what it is. If you wanna be a vegan, that’s cool. Do your thing. But what’s with this obsession with wanting to have fake shit that tastes like meat. You don’t see us meat eaters going around trying to create fake vegetables do ya?

Nice deal. My partner is vegetarian but we still like to have burgers sometimes. P:

It'd be nice to see one of these posts where people actually talk about the deal and don't turn into armchair doctors. It's fast food. It's bad for ya. It's yummy. Done.

It's funny how the narrative went from health conscious eating to a huge marketing exploit.

Popular opinion in the early 2000's and 90's "Meat is unhealthy for you".

--> Leads to veggie burgers that taste like feet

--> Veganism becomes popular , as well as being vegetarian

--> Leads to the next wave of "fake meat" burgers, chicken, etc.

But the underlying theme of "is it healthy?" is completely and utterly ignored.

Eating a A&W sandwhich , in my opinion, is unhealthy. Whether it has meat or doesn't.

Stay woke folks.

It's not due to all the extras they added, notably very high amount of sodium. In other words, it's still fast food, but at least it's possibly more environmentally friendly

I didn't realize anyone was considering eating a BM burger as a healthy option...

I prefer it to beef, it is more substantial than a single patty and just tastes better to me. I also think it's a great option to reduce the GHG emissions tied to the meat industry. It's also many levels above in being a more humane option.

I still enjoy my meat, but there are many reasons beyond health to consider alternatives once in awhile.

Thanks for the post, OP!

What's with the hostility towards this? It's just an option on the menu. No one is forcing you to buy this and the common knowledge that these are about as healthy as regular burgers is already months old. No need to invent imaginary strawmen and luddite arguments. Let the market decide the viability of this product. For myself , I will try this and decide if it's a good option. My favorite veggie burger was always from Licks restaurant.

This is pretty closed-minded. I love eating meat but I appreciate that the founders of Beyond are trying to make the world a better place, by reducing methane emissions and also reducing the suffering of animals.

If it's not your thing, no one is forcing you to buy it or eat it. But I guess some people always have to complain.
