While browsing the aisles of your local grocery store recently, you may have overheard fellow shoppers buzzing about Beyond Meat’s new Beyond Burger.
People are going crazy over the mouth-watering patty because it’s much healthier than the average burger—with absolutely no cholesterol and 20 grams of protein per serving—it’s completely hormone- and antibiotic-free, and it bleeds delicious juiciness. Oh, and it’s completely vegan!
The Beyond Burger is so meat-like that it’s the first plant-based burger to be carried in some stores’ meat aisles.
It contains beets, which make it look like the real deal when you bite into it. (Don’t worry—it doesn’t taste like beets. ?)
On #worldenvironmentday, it's crucial to remember that we all have the power to make a positive change every time we sit down for a meal. It's no secret that animal agriculture is a leading driver of many of the major issues facing our environment. We hope to help address this by building meat directly from plants. Better for the ? and your health ❤️! #photocred: @veganfatkid ?: @veggiegrill
But because the Beyond Burger is made entirely from plants, no animals had to suffer for it, and it’s better for human health and much more environmentally friendly than any burger made from animals. Ready to sink your teeth into one?
You can find the Beyond Burger at the following restaurants:
- Next Level Burger
- Veggie Grill

One of Beyond Meat’s goals is to have the vegan burger carried by fast-food chains. While no chains have mentioned plans for the plant-based burger at their restaurants, McDonald’s former CEO Don Thompson joined Beyond Meat’s board last year, which makes one think that maybe even fast-food chains know that the future is vegan. ?
With more and more companies creating delicious and healthy alternatives to meat—which causes the suffering of countless animals and is destroying the environment—there’s no excuse not to take the pledge to go vegan!
