I read an interesting post today by Jeff Novick (Jeff is an expert dietitian affiliated in part with the McDougall program).
In the post, he describes an on-line debate that occurred over the “Beyond Meat” veggie burgers, and he gives reasons why the “Beyond Meat” burger is not a healthy choice. If we’re going to purchase processed products once in a while, label reading is important! We usually don’t have to go any further than the ingredient list.
Another interesting tip: Now that food manufacturers are no longer required to reveal the percentage of fat in a product, Jeff explains how we can tell the percentage of fat by doing just a bit of math. He mentions The Impossible Burger (I’m not familiar with that one) and shows how that product is 53% fat (with 41% of that being saturated fat).
Here’s the link to Jeff’s post.
Making your own plant-based burgers at home is easy and delicious! Here are just a few of the hundreds out there.
I’d love to hear about your favorites too!
