Vegetarian alternatives to meat have been around for a while. The problem was, they tasted nothing like meat. The meat alternatives around now look, taste, smell, and even sound more like real meat. They are great because they are healthier for you, they don't harm animals, and they are better for the planet. The two big brands are Beyond Meats and Impossible. If you want to try some smaller brands, go to an organic store like Trader Joe's or Sprouts. They have parts of their store that are filled with the products from smaller meatless meat companies. All of these companies, big and small, have veggie burgers, veggie sausages, and veggie ground beef. Since each company makes the meats a little differently, you have to try them all to find your favorite. There are some downsides to the meatless meat one the market now. To make it taste like a burger, these companies use a ton of salt. They also use oils like coconut oil to make the veggie meat sizzle, but those oils have saturated fat. Before you buy meatless meat, please check the label.
