Slate has an interesting article about a new fake chicken, called Beyond Meat, that is so like real chicken it made a vegetarian a bit queasy. I enjoy red meat, but know that it’s not the healthiest thing on the planet (they say to have it only a few times a week max). So I’m happy to try some of the fake stuff, but I haven’t loved the stuff I’ve tried – it’s either too salty, or too filled with garlic and other spices, or, like the chicken patties I was into for a while, too dry. This stuff, apparently, is the real fake deal. It’s not available outside of Whole Foods in Northern CA, but I look forward to trying it.
