Mom: "now it should be ready. Add the parmesan and serve it. And remember to turn off the gas!"

I think Impossible Meat tastes better than Beyond Meat, but I should A/B test them to be sure.

Even if you don't care about how farm animal are being treated, isn't it cool to see the advancements of food tech?

We still have to rely on plants to synthesize all the nutrients that go into vegan meat, but cutting off animals from the human food chain is a *huge* optimization. Perhaps 5x more efficient. It will be crucial when we must feed 12B humans.

Beyond Burger with contorno of Tuscan-style peas (cooked in olive oil, garlic and black pepper).

The second side is kale with vegan feta cheese and lemon juice (but for a proper Tuscan dish I should have used rucola instead).

Also, the burger should have been "al sangue" (rare). That's how most people like their steak in Florence.

White miso soup with enoki mushrooms, wakame (seaweed), negi (scallion) and tofu ๐Ÿ˜‹

The plant based whopper is the cheapest meal! ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

Has Impossible Meat finally figured out how to scale production?

Affordable meat is a reality!

How to Lower the Price of Plant-Based Meat

My thoughts: plant-based meat is still 2x more expensive than beef and 4x more expensive than chicken... but getting cheaper and growing in distribution across America, Europe and Asia.

Even if you're not vegetarian, please consider eating plant-based meat for its lower environmental impact. Choosing vegetarian food sometimes is still better than doing nothing.

by the way...

Meals based on vegetable protein sources (beans and peas) are more satiating than meals based on animal protein sources (veal and pork) - a randomized cross-over meal test study

I stopped by a restaurant and ordered the ใƒ˜ใƒซใ‚ทใƒผใ‚ปใƒƒใƒˆใƒŸใƒ‹ใƒ‡ใ‚ถใƒผใƒˆ (healthy set mini dessert).

And they gave me all this stuff! ๐Ÿคฉ

The entrรฉe is a spaghetti (not due to butter, but they could also make it without it).

The sausage-looking rings are actually slices of pink cherie potato. The other veggies are yuzu (a citrus), scallion and celery (I think). Topped with nori flakes.

Gourmet food like this is uncommon in izakayas. I think I'll come again tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜‹

The second dish is a salad. But what a salad!

The base is purรฉe, and the veggies sticking out are purple potato, green beans and of course pumpkins for Halloween. I couldn't identify the white stuff, probably daikon?

Anyway, it's crunchy, colorful and fun to eat ๐Ÿ˜‹
