Plant-based burgers: making plant-based eating easier, one burger at a time.
In the past few years, plant-based meat has popped up everywhere. We’ve always had veggie burgers, but this new wave of “fake meat” actually resembles meat, helping tons of people shift to a more plant-based diet.
It wasn’t until putting this guide together that I realized just how many different options there are out there. My knowledge of plant-based meats started and ended with Impossible Burger & Beyond Burger. But there are even more than I could fit in this guide!
I’ve tried the two big names in the game (Impossible and Beyond) and I didn’t hate them, but I didn’t love them either. I much prefer a beef burger and I don’t think these can perfectly replicate the taste, but if you’re shifting to a vegan or plant-based diet, I can definitely see the appeal of these as a meat replacement.
Looking at the nutrition, plant-based burgers most closely resemble 80/20 or 85/15 beef. So, if you’re someone who enjoys extra lean meat, these plant-based meats won’t compare nutritionally.
I don’t follow a plant-based diet, but I appreciate good food and am always willing to try something new. I’ll try some new ones here and check back in with some of my favorites when the time comes!
