And the Winner is…The Cow! — 10 Comments

  1. As you know Sue, I am a 98% vegan for medical reasons – severe cardiovascular disease. I like the flavor and convenience of the “burger” patties. I take them to family picnics and I blend in with the omnivores/carnivores. That’s where I stop as they are too expensive and very highly processed. I have fun taking novel whole food plant based dishes to get-togethers. One group, when they hear that I have brought a dish, immediately turn their noses up at it. LOL! Other groups at least give it a chance and usually end up liking the dish. The mind need to be open.

    • Like you, Eric, I’m mostly vegan, allowing for tasty exceptions now and then, and I can see where one of these burgers would be an exception every once in a while. Unless we go to a restaurant that offers organic food with vegan selections, we’re either eating meat, dairy or glyphosate in one form or another.I don’t think every once in a while will kill us. I just want people to know what they are getting beyond the hype and misleading rhetoric/ads.

      (You should switch what you bring to an event with a friend so people don’t know they are eating vegan. The dish will probably be empty by the end of the night! Bon appetite, my friend.)

  2. Wow! Thanks for sharing the ingredient list and the links. I knew they were highly processed, but didn’t realize the dearth of natural ingredients. I have a lot of concerns about the “heme” ingredient. I’m afraid this is only the tip of the iceberg where “Frankenfood” is concerned. Now that people are turning to more plant based diets, either through the latest fad, manufacturers will be rushing to put convenience foods out to meet that demand.

    • Exactly, Pat.Food manufacturers already make lots of “vegan junk food.” We need real food, not fake food, or “food like substances.”

  3. Now that I’m officially a senior citizen I find that plant-based foods simply sit better with me than fatty or meaty foods. I can enjoy meatless meals, but usually supplement with white meats. The rare burger(cow-supplied) will pass my lips. If I have pizza once a month, that’s a lot. Sue, can you imagine? We former members of the “Stomach Club” avoiding pizza? It does all boil down to what my sensitive gut can tolerate!

    • I’d forgotten all about our Stomach Club” when the two of us would eat a large Tino’s pizza in one sitting. It would probably kill us now!

  4. Hi Sue, if my buddy Gene likes this, it’s good enough for me!!! Very interesting. Keep writing and all the work you do.

  5. Thanks Sue! I just learned a lot. My son and I are considering going plant based and your thoughtful research keeps pushing the needle farther in that direction. Great piece.

    • It’s a big step to move from the Standard American Diet (S.A.D) to plant based, Karen. I’m glad you are both considering it. The more I read, the more it becomes clear that the greatest danger to our health, and the best way to stay well, lies at the end of our forks. It takes a while to get used to, but even my husband enjoys plant based. (never thought that would happen!)
