    I would try it. I'm doubtful that it actually tastes like ground beef, though.

    :lol: Yeah, I've known my share of week-long vegans. I'e been vegetarian for 21 years, vegan for 10. So many options have sprouted up in the past 5 years that it's not that hard to be vegan anymore, maybe she'll succeed. My wife doesn't even care to try, but she gamely eats the stuff I cook anyway.

    But those patties, they only sell them at Kroger, I guess Simple Truth is their hippie brand. The meatless breakfast patties are good too. Beyond Meat makes a similar patty, but they're more expensive.

    Are you disputing the flavor of the burger or disputing the benefits?

    I can't prove either, just wondering.

    I have a friend who hunts, but the only sausage he'll eat with his breakfast is the fake Morningstar stuff, guess he had some directive to eat better.

    Yes, I've seen them.

    I've tried a few others and she didn't really like them.

    Almost all of my college friends were vegetarians, so I got used to the flavor of fake meat. Could never get down with fake burger patties though.

    I still love tofu and try to eat it every once in awhile. Can't get it at any restaurants around where I am now, but used to love eating Thai food with tofu instead of meat. So good.
