    I've read several books on vegan\vegetarianism.
    We as a nation eat way too much meat.
    We treat the animals we eat poorly.
    I still think it's okay to eat meat,
    but my mind could be changed.
    P.S.  I once went a month without meat and nicknamed myself the "meatless wonder".
    The worst of times..they don't phase me,
    even if I look and act really crazy.

    Hope you didn't use that nickname around the ladies!

    I think that we, as a nation, eat way too much in general.  And can be so wasteful with it.

    Awesome.  I have a friend who has been vegan for several years.  He is also an Iron Man Triathlete several times over.

    ^^^They have a displeasing scent when cooking.  Fine on the grill, but stinks the house up if done in the kitchen.
    I would rather have a more classic beanburger.

    You know they did have a weird smell when I opened them but I didn't smell anything after I put them on the grill.  it was a definitely a nice alternative to a beef burger. With a slice of cheese and bbq sauce I honestly didn't know the difference.   
    What bean burger do you recommend gambs?

    I agree, they do have a strange smell.  Taste is good but after now having the Beyond Burgers many times and finally finding an Impossible packet in a store to make burgers from that, I also prefer making a bean-burger from scratch.  Also have a few purchased ones that I like -- BJs actually has a type I really enjoy.  (Costco over BJs as a warehouse shopping store, but those bean burgers are great) 

    For me the burger is just as much about the stuff I load all over it as it is the patty.

    When trying to be healthy I put all of that shit (pickles, lettuce, tomato, olives, etc) in a bowl and smash up 2 bean burgers.  Fucking delicious.

    The hidden biases that drive anti-vegan hatred


    Hank Rothgerber, a social psychologist at Bellarmine University, Kentucky, thinks it all comes down to answering the question: how do we continue to eat meat?

    “So basically we live in an era today, at least in the Western world, where there’s more and more evidence, more and more arguments, and more and more books about how eating meat is bad,” says Rothgerber. “But still, our behaviour hasn't changed significantly.” He points out that 2018 looks set to be – it takes a while for the annual statistics to be released – the year with the highest per capita meat consumption in the history of the United States.

    “So what I’m looking at is, how do people rationalise that, and still feel like they’re a good person?” To continue to eat meat, Rothgerber suggests, requires some serious mental gymnastics. Luckily, our brains are extremely good at protecting us from realities we don’t want to face – and there are a number of psychological tricks at our disposal.

    Yes, that's the way it is.  Sadly.

    Good. And 4 patties for 45 SEK, is way cheaper than Beyond Burger that is only 2 patties for 62 SEK.

    Gonna try this one next, with them saying they are better than Beyond Burger.



    But, I am one of those who doesn't need a "meat" taste and prefer a stuffed, fried veggie patty over these types of patties. Give me the old and discountinued McGarden any day. Or Burger Kings "Veggie burger meal". Just mashed veggies, fried.

    Seems all chains are switching to these meat substitutes now.... well oh, well
