Arrow Free Lunch Today

if you're open to trying a new type of veggie meat substitute. I had one of their burgers and it honestly was pretty OK.

Yep, put enough onion, pickles & ketchup on it, I’ll try it.

I bought it in the store (burgers and sausage). I thought it tasted OK especially with the appropriate condiments/sauce. Did not like the fat content and high caloric content and it costs - at least now - more than the real deal.

Very few things - beside wild fish and vegetables are made in a lab or GMOs. Cold cereal? Lab. McDonalds? Lab...

One of the few things we agree on.

Don't have any of those places around here. Also surprised those things aren't healthy, why not the real thing?

A BeyondBurger, when prepared correctly, is delicious. However, I have to say, the way it smells before you cook it is horrific.

Beef and chicken are made in a lab? Interesting.

Without actually de-railing this thread into a discussion on the validity of any of these particular points....

The motivation is to find a food source to, ultimately, help replace animal derived meat to reduce the ENORMOUS environmental impact of farmed meat, reduce/eliminate the suffering of the animals that are grown and harvested, allow vegetarians to enjoy 'meat' again.

What is a cow good for if not for eating?
Same with a chicken.

I don't get vegetarians, I've been to vegan restaurants, and all they want to do is mess with food to pretend it's meat. Why not just enjoy vegetables and not mess with them in a lab?

I can easily make a stir fry wiht out meat and enjoy it. I don't need to add weird stuff like this.

I was debating whether or not to call out my own third point

I get it, I do. But, I get what you are saying and as much as I hate it, I get what they are saying.

To be honest, how I eat meat and what meat I choose to eat is vastly different than it was 5 or 10 years ago. I eat MUCH less of it - probably by half. To the extent that I can find it, I prefer locally grown and harvested meat. I prefer to eat cows, chickens, whatever that have had at least a half way decent life. If that means I have to go farther to get it and pay more money, so be it.

Soooooooooooo..... all of that being said, if I could get "meat" that had little to no environmental impact, had no associated grow/harvest cycle of animals and it still tastes great, why the hell wouldn't I??

I guess my point is that I can see myself moving that way. But if I were really going to take a stand on those things, I would have stopped eating meat outright awhile ago

So - if a bunch of people took a stand on it, on the same beliefs that I have, I can't really criticize them for wanting to have their cake and, well, eat it too.

Matt you should come up here in the fall and I'll take you deep into the woods with my guns

You'll go home with boxes full or organic venison and feast on meat the way nature intended.

On a related note, i tried to make black bean burgers Monday night for first time. Flavor was incredible, consistency was awful. Anybody have a good recipe for it?

I heard about their ipo yesterday they did well.

Not a vegetarian, just found myself eating red meat way too much and really like good veggie burgers too.

Probably go home with a bit of bird shot in my ass too

At best!

I'm all for hunting and harvesting - and the guns that go with it.

It's not about NOT eating meat, it's about doing it more responsibly.
