Exploring Beyond Meat: Is it For Real?

Mock Meat – Fake, Fad or the Future of Food?

In the 21st century, there are also sorts of reasons for cutting down on meat, or eliminating it from the diet altogether. Meat production is bad for the environment, and meat eating has a number of associated health risks and it’s plainly bad for the animals slaughtered for our tables.

Introducing Mock Meat.

Mock meat (not to be confused with cultured meat), variously made from foods like soy, wheat and mycoprotein, is a creative solution to these problems, and the market for such products is expanding year on year. But humans can be as conservative as they are innovative, and mock meat is still controversial, on several fronts.

Costs:

Meatless substitutes are nothing new. But for a number of years, the cost of meat-less substitutes has been prohibitive. Sure, you can use a 10 off coupon for getting from Bodybuilding.com or another site. But the products were not only expensive, but of varying quality.

Common Criticisms Are Starting To Disappear.

A common criticism of vegetarian meat is that it doesn’t taste like meat, and the texture or ‘mouth feel’ isn’t equivalent. That’s a matter of personal opinion and – literally – taste. There are many types and brands of meat substitute available, some of which are more meat-like than others. Some people can barely tell the difference. Some even prefer the taste of meat analogues. Others are prepared to sacrifice a bit of authenticity to enjoy vegetarian versions of much-loved, traditional meat dishes with a clear conscience, on both ecological and animal welfare grounds.

Technology is advancing on the imitation front, with products such as the Impossible Burger, launched in 2016. Its USP is that it includes a molecule called heme, which is one of the things that makes meat taste meaty. The Impossible Burger uses plant-derived heme, originating in soy and cultured with yeast. The result: a meaty-tasting burger that ‘bleeds’. Far from being a pale imitation, it has even found its way onto the menu of Michelin-starred top restaurants.

A more substantial criticism of imitation meat products is that they are energy-intensive to produce. However, that depends on the individual product. Think of the energy needed to produce meat: from animal food through to operating slaughterhouses. US scientists have calculated that it takes more than 15 000 litres of water to produce just one kilogram of beef. The makers of the Impossible Burger estimate that their manufacture requires 95% less land and three quarters less water than beef production, and is close to 90% cleaner when it comes to greenhouse gas emissions. 

The health implications are perhaps even more worrying for some skeptics, especially in the light of concerns about processed foods. Many meat alternatives are made by a process called extrusion – the same process used for items like breakfast cereals, which are clearly safe. The jury is still out on how degrees of processing affect nutritional value, but all products are tested to ensure that they are safe for human consumption. It may not be the degree of processing and engineering that’s the problem, but the extent to which manufacturers add sugar, salt, fat and chemical additives. 

In fact, meat-free meats, made from wheat gluten (seitan) and mushrooms have featured in oriental cuisine for centuries, with no adverse effects. Modern takes on these traditional dishes include tofurkey, a faux turkey roast made from tofu, which is in turn made from bean curd. Quality vegetarian meat products provide ample protein, are high in fibre and low in fat, which is helpful for low cholesterol diets. Some, but not all, are also suitable for vegans. Like all foods, their nutritional value depends on the specific recipe, so it’s worth reading the labels and trying out different brands. 

Modern cuisine has moved away from meals where meat is the centrepiece and vegetables the accessory. Flavour is all, and meat alternatives are ideal for absorbing the taste of sauces and seasonings. Contrary to a widespread popular misconception, meat alternatives aren’t just for vegetarians, who are often perfectly happy with a diet whose ingredients don’t resemble meat. They are also ideal for flexitarians, who wish to reduce their meat intake for ethical or health reasons. It’s not about settling for food that’s inferior to the real thing. Growing demand shows that meat alternatives are not just trendy now, but a food for the future, with quality and taste improving all the time.

Veganism is on the up with more people than ever before changing their lifestyles, however vegan-friendly hair care can still be difficult to come by.

MyPillow: Our Profile

About MyPillow

Mike Lindell, the founder of MyPillow, also serves as the company’s chief executive officer. MyPillow’s history goes as back as 1977. Its invention was born out of Lindell’s frustrations with his pillow going flat – something that happens to a lot of people. Lindell would wake up in the morning and complain of several discomforts such as sore arm, painful neck, and numb fingers. He would toss and turn all through the night, but couldn’t understand why.

In his journey of trying to discover why he experienced the discomforts, Mike Lindell decided to use his entire paycheck on a pillow. He gathered that, if the pillow was expensive, it must be terrific. He was wrong! At the time, he was working two jobs; in a drive-in movie theater and in a grocery store. In 1980, Lindell began his entrepreneurial journey by starting a carpet cleaning business. He would later buy a lunch wagon and then own a couple of local restaurants and bars.

All this while, he was still in search of a good pillow with no success. Then one night, the idea to make his own pillow struck him, and he ran with it. He first came up with a prototype and a logo. In just one year, Mike Lindell had made the kind of pillow he had always dreamt off, and he was ready to make it commercially available. Unfortunately, all the boxed stores he approached so that they would carry his products turned him down.

He didn’t give up. He knew that he needed to devise a way of selling his products to not only provide for his family but also to help people have a better sleep. Note that he had sold his business and as such, entirely dedicated to the pillow. One of his friends suggested that he sell his products from a kiosk in a mall and he didn’t hesitate. Luckily, one of his customers ran a local home and garden show; he loved the pillow so much that he gave Lindell a spot in his show. To his surprise, he sold all the pillows he had on that show. From there, he started trading in fairs, shows, and expos. He was making great strides in the business and even started running ads on televisions.

An infomercial that was debuted on October 7, 2011, where Lindell acted as the host, brought in more sales. He even had to construct a call center to handle the incoming calls for orders. In less than 40 days, the company grew from 5 to 500 employees. By 2012, the business was doing exceptionally well. There was a need to expand both the manufacturing and the call center. In October 2012, the CEO of MyPillow appeared on QVC, and the audience fell in love with him and his pillows. Ever since he has been making appearances on air to sell his pillows.

The company uses a patented three-piece interlocking fill that gently cradles both head and neck. The fabric of the cover of all the pillows is made from 100 percent cotton, and in turn, giving the user light and soft touch. The use of 100 percent polyurethane foam filling makes the pillow not only fluffy but also easy to shape and fold.

MyPillow is designed to stay the way you like all through the night. Other products that the company sells include Pillowcases, MyPillow mattresses, mattress topper, art pillowcases, pet beds, MyPillow bed, mattress protector, and neck pillow. MyPillow makes sure that you don’t have a hard time washing your pillow. It is machine washable!

Happy Cow: Everything You Need To Know About the Vegan App

All About Happy Cow

HappyCow is an online company that provides information regarding the best restaurants that serve healthy vegan and vegetarian food at various locations worldwide. It shares information regarding vegan and vegetarian-friendly restaurant listings, bakeries, caterers, bed and breakfasts, and farmers markets. It also advocates for better animal rights and organizes events to further that cause.

When was it started

HappyCow was founded in 1999 by Eric Brent. Earlier, in 1997, he had realized that information regarding vegan restaurants and food joints was hard to come by on the internet. The online resources available at the time were hardly updated to reflect new vegan food joints.

Since Eric was an avid traveler, he saw the need to create a one-stop source of information on all the vegan restaurants where people like him (vegetarian and traveler) who were visiting new cities and countries would find healthy vegan food.

Since its inception, the website has grown tremendously thanks to a diverse team of like-minded individuals who help run the website.

Services Offered

Since it was founded, HappyCow has always granted free access to information to its users to encourage more people to contribute since it now operates based on a crowd-sourced information gathering model.

It has thousands of listings of businesses in most countries around the world. Each of these businesses has been reviewed by customers. Restaurants are categorized as either veg-friendly, vegetarian, or vegan.

Currently, HappyCow is more than just a website showing people where they can find restaurants. It is a community of vegans and vegetarians who share their experiences, add new listings, and give honest reviews about the listings. Members also use the platform to push for improved animal rights.

Users can now find vegan recipes and vegan nutrition guides as well as healthy cooking tips for a variety of vegetarian foods onsite. They can also share their own recipes with the community.

In 2014, HappyCow launched “The HappyCow Cookbook: Recipes from Top-Rated Vegan Restaurants around the World.” People can use it to learn more about these restaurants and how they can make some of the dishes served there.

App and Social Media

Since the smartphone boom kicked off, web usage on mobile devices has been on the rise. HappyCow has a dedicated mobile site and mobile apps for both Android and iOS devices. Users can also subscribe to the newsletter.
The company is also found on various social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest. HappyCow runs a YouTube channel where they interview people and cover events worldwide.

Through these platforms, they have reached more people.

Funding

HappyCow allows free access to its website making it a not-for-profit entity, technically, although they are not afforded the 501-c status. To make ends meet, they rely on adverts, Cookbook sales on Amazon, app purchases on the app stores, charitable donations, and merchandise sales (t-shirts).

Awards and Recognition

HappyCow has been a serial winner of VegNews’ award segment called “Veggieawards.” They have won 11 consecutive accolades for “Best Website” and more recently bagged the award for “Best App.”
The website is rated among the Top 50 vegetarian blogs of 2012 by The Institute for the Psychology of Eating and the Top 100 vegetarian food websites by web100.com
