Meat lovers, enjoy the bloody stuff while you can because it is on its way out. So says an outfit called Beyond Meat.
Beyond Meat manufactures a product that looks like meat, tastes like meat but does not contain one ounce of animal flesh. According to investigative reporters, this commodity looks and taste very close to the real McCoy.
It is fast growing in popularity, and it is now sold in a variety of grocery stores and burger joints.
I am not a vegetarian but I am glad to hear about this development. I am an animal lover and a staunch supporter of animal rights. Sometimes when I drive to Sonoma, I have somber thoughts about the cattle I see grazing in the hills.
Closer to home, across the freeway, there is a bunch of milk-producing cows living a seemingly carefree life. But do you know what happens to these gentle creatures once they stop producing their milk quota?
After many years of good service, they are sent to the slaughterhouse… which to me is an abhorrent thought.
If we migrate (as we should) to Beyond Meat we won’t need to raise large herds and waste a lot of grazing land. We will also improve human health, cut down on methane gas pollution, positively impact climate change, and amend animal welfare. We will also stop the horrible slaughter of 66 billion animals every year.
If you crave meat (as some people still crave tobacco) you will be able to satisfy your hankering for protein by eating Beyond Meat products; their primary source of protein comes from plain peas.
Beyond Burger aims to be cheaper than beef. For the time being it is more expensive than animal flesh, but as its reputation grows and its production increases it will definitely become cheaper than animal meat.
The product is already widely seen on the shelves of stores like Giant, Safeway, Natural Grocers, Jewel Osco, Food Lion, Mariano’s, Harris Tester and multiple burgers outlets.
A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. Leo Tolstoy
As of now, I seldom eat beef and it would be no big deal for me to completely eliminate it.
