Changing your lifestyle can be very challenging! Changing the way you eat can be down right difficult! As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, I try to be sure to incorporate healthier food choices into my daily regimen. A few months ago, my husband and I decided to get serious and commit to a healthier eating regimen that included several plant-based meals.

Of course, this was a little tough for us because we are complete foodies! When the average person thinks of “eating healthy” they automatically assume that your favorite foods have to be restricted! I’m here to tell you that you CAN eat healthier, and still enjoy food without compromising taste or satisfaction!
I heard so many great things about The Beyond Burger from Beyond Meat and wanted to try them for myself. Some of the great things I heard was that it was a completely plant–based protein option that provided great taste! After I got my hands on a pack, I noticed that in addition to packing 20 grams of plant protein per patty, they are also gluten free, soy free, and contain no GMOs! And like meat, it’s sold in the meat case of over 7,000 grocery stores nationwide!
I decided to try them for dinner and was surprised at the color! Most veggie patties have a brown or odd coloring, but these patties were vibrant and very appealing! I chose to cook these on my stovetop grill and they turned out great!
I topped my plant-based burger with smashed avocado, lettuce, tomatoes, and bell peppers! I took a bite and was completely shocked, not because it was extremely delicious, but because it didn’t have a weird texture! I’m a big texture person, and most veggie patties are mushy once you bite them. This patty was juicy and had a nice firm bounce and texture!
Now the real test was my husband! I decided to serve him the burger without telling him it was one of the Beyond Burgers! Lol! As he was eating it, he kept saying how his “hamburger” was so good! Because I am a total goofball, I kept giggling and couldn’t keep it a secret any longer! I told him that it was a Beyond Burger from Beyond Meat! He didn’t believe me because it was just that good!
Thanks to Beyond Meat, I feel confident that I will be able to continue with my healthier food journey without compromising and feeling like I’m missing out! I will be able to incorporate more meatless, plant-based meals into our weekly dinner routine! Don’t forget to download a coupon valid for $1 off The Beyond Burger, at retailers nationwide!
