BEYOND MEAT is changing the face of protein!

You could say it was love at first bite.  The first time I tasted Beyond Meat, my mind and taste buds were officially blown.  If you haven’t tried their chicken yet, run, don’t walk to your nearest Whole Foods or go HERE!!!!!! to locate the nearest health food store that carries Beyond Meat and experience it for yourself.

Need a little beef in that burrito?  They have that too.  Just released last month, Beyond Beef isn’t your ordinary vegan beef crumble.  This one might be a little harder to find, but when you do, make sure you stock up, because its flying off the shelves.

Beyond Meat loves to spread the love and so do I. How good can something really be if you can’t share it with your friends, right?

Here’s a little love from Beyond Meat and Guys Go Vegan…get out there and GO BEYOND! Click the photo, save some cash and pass it on.

Where’s the beef?

You know the first thing a guy thinks about when he goes vegan, believe it or not, is MEAT.  Strange right? “How the hell am I going to give up meat?”, is what you’ll ask yourself.  Also, “where am I going to get my protein?”.  (We’ll address the “P” word later on, don’t worry.)

I think that as men we automatically relate being manly to eating meat, which is probably something that has been pre-installed in our “man hard drive” since the dawn of time.  Going vegan is going to require  you to update your operating system or for some, wipe it clean.  There are options out there; some good, some bad and some that will completely satisfy your carnivorous cravings.  If you don’t believe me, then see what the expert of all experts has to say, Alton Brown, about the newest discovery and meat substitute, Beyond Meat.  Do  yourself a favor and read this article,Tastes Like Chicken.  I think, it speaks volumes about how far we’ve come in the plant based protein world, and did I mention Alton Brown is singing Beyond Meat‘s praises.

Here are a few of my favorite substitutes after Beyond Meat:

  1. Field Roast (Great sausages, and perfect for Turkey Day)
  2. Gardein (Great chick tenders, and well just about all of their products)
  3. Upton’s Naturals New found favorite.  Wonderful flavor and abundant in spices!
  4. Lightlife Smart Deli (After all we’re men and men eat sandwiches, but not all of their products are vegan)
  5. Tofurky! (They make everything from pepperoni, to Tempeh bacon)
  6. Boca Burger (Good options, but not my first choice)

Don’t forget that not all substitutes are created equal.  Check the ingredients, because vegetarian is not always vegan.

Try some out and let me know what you think.  Check out my poll,

Stay strong men,
