We're trying to cut down on the amount of meat we eat but we miss the taste/texture of meat so we've been buying commercially produced veggie pretend meat. Some has been really nice i.e. the texture and taste made us feel like it was meat and some have been awful. We're not going veggie for the animals but for the environment and ourselves. Let me be up front....real bacon is never going off the menu.
But then we got to thinking are we doing the right thing or have we been swept up onto a gimmicky/more expensive bandwagon.
I have two questions that I can't seem to find out the answer to and I know the GN hive mind will be sure to be able to help.
Is it healthier to eat commercially produced veggie pretend meat rather than real meat?
Does eating commercially produced veggie pretend meat help the environment or does the act of it being made commercially leave a big carbon footprint?
