In the UK we have Linda Macartney meat free food. The sausages are lovely. I am not a fan of sausages usually but I love these. Yum yum.
We don't actually eat much red meat or bacon etc, its not good for you anyway and too much can bring on all sorts of cancers. My Former MIL died of bowel cancer in her early 60's and she ate LOADS of red meat. No bowel cancer in her family.
Back in the early 1980s we had the first of the veggie bergers.
NO ONE expected them to taste like a quarter pounder, but, in and of themselves were not terrible.
That seemed to be the start of a "trend" where it became imperative to make genetically altered food.
Now, I do not know about the UK but here in the states , nearly 40 years after those veggie burgers made their way onto the American menu responsible suppliers are making a big point of posting their meats as being "grass fed" and no anti-biotics being fed to them.
And the veggies have become equally important in that they now have people looking for that NON-GMO posting on the labels.
Why is this?
I firmly believe that they are now just discovering the damage to "playing" around with the food and the effects that has had on our health in general.
There are explosions of things happening in the human body that are not for the good.
Diabetes is just one of them. It has become nearly epidemic.
Not to mention the ever increasing numbers of people that are clinically obese.
How about the increase in the number of people with Alzheimer's and severe dementia?
And much, much more. Including children increasingly diagnosed with ADHD, and our neighbor, who at the age of 7 was put on Prevacid.
It is my opinion that when they started to change the food supply that in turn changed the human body, and not for the good.
So, Chosen, I am very happy you like your meat free foods.
For myself I want real food. I want them the way God originally created them.
