A big thanks to Beyond Beef™ for hosting this conversation!
Have you seen the Beyond Meat products at Whole Foods or any other store? You probably have, most stores carry Beyond Meat products. One of my teens is a vegetarian… working towards becoming vegan and one of my other teens is a health nut and wont’ touch anything unhealthy so we decided to try Beyond Meat.
Who is Beyond Meat?
At Beyond Meat, our mission is to create The Future of Protein. We bypass the animal altogether and make delicious products like chicken strips, meatballs, and beef crumbles directly from plants. We are dedicated to positively impacting human health and the health of our world. THE BEYOND MEAT MISSION
Beyond Meat uses protein from plants to create chicken strips and tenders, meatballs and beef crumbles. These products are 100% plant-based products so that families can enjoy foods like beef nachos, chili, pastas, fajitas, meatball subs and so much more. Fortunately we can enjoy these foods but without all of the unhealthy aspects of animal protein like the hormones, anti-biotic treatments, etc.
Beyond Beef™ Chili
We plan on making Beyond Beef™ Chili this weekend! It’s perfect timing too… it’s getting COLD here in Chicago! I seriously can not wait to see how this tastes and compares to chili with real beef.
So far, Becca and I tried the Beyond CHICKEN™ Strips on our salad. I actually didn’t tell her about this chicken. I just made our salads and we started eating. I was afraid to tell her for fear she wouldn’t try it. She didn’t seem to notice at all.
Beyond Meat Partners with Elite Athletes
Athletes intuitively understand the benefits of plant-based proteins, and so they’ve partnered with Beyond Meat to effectively communicate – by example – the benefits to other families and their children.
These athletes come from the NBA, WNBA, MLB, AVP, and WSL and include J.J. Redick, David Wright, Maya Moore, April Ross, Eric Bledsoe, Maggie Vessey, and Tia Blanco. They want to promote the great benefits of plant protein in hopes to help people understand that there is no sacrifice with plant-based protein vs. meat. They want to help families understand that plant protein is not nutritionally inferior compared to meat protein.
