Bit like vinyl LPs with download codes. I really can't see the point of 'fake meat'.

The BK Spicy Beanburger was cheap and lush, I spent six months just living on that and Guinness...why ditch the classics?

Is it one or the other though? Once you've got the Rebel Whopper then the Spicy Beanburger must be cast aside on to the rubbish heap like Superted?

They're full of absolute shit.
An inflammatory bloatagenic nightmare of ultraprocessed oils and additives.
Fabulously profitable though.

not a veggie burger, but this company Memphis Meats has worked out a way to clone meat. i've been waiting for it to become commercially available, no idea how well it's doing in the US? seems to have quietened down since i first came across them, which feels like at least 5 years ago now.

Darned cockwombles.
Shocked at how much vitamin c they have! Veganism is the new religion right
Only one of them. It probably contains crushed-up Berocca

Whether veggie burgers are full of shit or not, eating beef regularly is a climate disaster

Gandhi kicked the British out of India on a vegetarian diet so I don't think it's really going to do you any harm let's be realistic

It is easier to be a vegan or vegetarian on the Indian subcontinent, that's a fact. Cos more diverse vegetables have grown there for longer

Gandhi ate meat briefly for a while when he was a kid, cos a mate of his told him that it was the difference between Indians and sahibs. And that if Indians started eating meat, they would be able to defeat them. Then he felt bad and wrote a letter to his dad telling him what he did, asking for punishment.

I had a veggie burger recently in a restaurant I'd ended up in late night. The veggie people I was with loved it but the man thing that came over to me was how full of salt it was, no doubt to enhance flavour 'cos it'd taste like shit otherwise. It was seitan - main thing that occurs to me re. this stuff and other substitutes is how unatrual it is, and with soy/tofu also a product of industrial monoculture. I think I'm right in saying that there are no vegan diets occurring amongst indigenous peoples i.e. its very much a product of the industrialised world? Ethically obvs, it's the bomb but.....I have more time for vegetarian cuisines made from yer actual vegetables.

Yeah i mean our teeth tell us that right. Weve got teeth to eat meat. We just eat way too much. Should be once a month ritual thing, payday only. Full pig at a wedding.

What about deep soy conspiracy theory? ie that soy is being produced in big quantities now and it contains alot of estrogen so its having an overall feminising effect.

100%

vegetarian restaurants also often use a fair amount of garlic to enhance flavor. not a problem for me but I know vegetarians who are intolerant or allergic, so pretty much rules out Indian and Korean.
