I recently tried a Beyond Meat burger, who were doubling down on their appeal to carnivores so much that decided to participate in Miami Food&Wine festival’s burger bash. Honestly, if I’d never tasted real meat, I might have been fooled but for a carnivore, that was a slap in the face. My advice — quit trying to recreate nature. I’d rather not eat meat at all, then pretend that mushing together a bunch of plant matter, then manipulating it to look like ground beef, is the way forward. Some things are just not meant to be.
