Most families understand the importance of a balanced diet. It makes families healthier. It makes you feel at your best, and can make the difference between developing certain health conditions. As a parent, of course, making sure my son is eating the best  he can is important to me. A balanced diet doesn’t always mean a meat based diet. Not that we are wholly giving up meat, but I do want to switch to include plant based proteins as well.

Many people, including some great athletes, are starting to use plant based protein in their diets- the future of protein. They know that that it is a healthy way to get the protein that they need without a lot of the things that come with meat based protein. Beyond Meat, a 100% plant based product that lets families have the food that they love, but without the down sides of animal protein. Beyond Meat can be used to make things like beef nachos, chilis, even meatball subs. It can also be used for kids who love their chicken nuggets but for moms who would rather the kids not have chicken.

Beyond Meat wanted me to take a challenge. I used Beyond Meat to make the kids a quick after school snack of chicken nuggets. I was worried if my boy would like them as much as traditional chicken nuggets, but he devoured the whole plate. I ate some as well, and they did taste pretty good.  My fella doesn’t care (or really bat an eye) when I switch his foods around, so he didn’t mind that it wasn’t chicken.

    I love making non meat dinners! It is so healthy not to eat meat every day. I would love to try the delicious Southwest style tenders!

  2. valmg @ From Val's Kitchen says:

    No I cannot say we have tried many non-meat products. I can’t tell, is this product gluten-free?

  3. Jennifer H says:

    I can’t say we have. This sounds like a good concept though. I’m curious if we’ll like the flavor.

  4. Stephanie says:

    Protein is a must have in my diet! I notice a big difference in how I feel if I don’t get enough. Thanks for sharing this great alternative — I hadn’t heard of them, but will definitely be checking them out now.

  5. We often try non-meat products, but I haven’t yet seen Beyond Meat. I will have to keep an eye open for it!

  6. Grace Hodgin says:

    I will have to look for this brand in the store. Sounds like a nice product to try.
