It’s Fake and It’s Processed
While I'm not a big beef eater myself, many of you love to sink your teeth into a juicy burger once in awhile, despite health warnings. So now we have companies looking to replicate a burger with non-meat ingredients.
While it may seem noble, both health wise and ethically, I don't think it's in your best interest to eat these products. Why?
Because I'm a real food nutrition coach, one who believes in eating pure unprocessed food.
Foodcompanies like Beyond Meat are selling fake burgers like hotcakes. They are highly processed and contain 5 times as much sodium as an unseasoned real burger.
So I say if you really want a burger, have one. Just not too often. And load it up with some veggies and skip the cheese.
