    For the zombies among us, should we be looking into meat-based plants? Happy Halloween!

    Slightly related, research shows prepubescent/pubescent kids likely should not be put on these kinds of diets for developmental reasons, but for old farts like us who are just kind of sustaining, we probably haven't got much to worry about.

    May be true. However I can't even think of a single time science has flip flopped on vegetables and plants, saving finding out something was poisonous or something. I can recall countless times in the last 30 years where red meat is good, red meat is bad, back and forth many many times. I'd say that alone makes it superior for me.
    Not flip-flopped, but different methodological designs conducted and interpreted by different vested interests.
    red meats=worse (but possibly vital for brain health of ancestors);
    cured=worse;
    "processed"(re:Harvard)=very worse;
    These were correlations. Serving sizes, for red meat, were also inversely correlated.
    And milk might actually have too much calcium that isn't eliminated, as retinol isn't eliminated but beta-carotene is.

    Hence I bought the peanut butter with the 'Ingredientseanuts.' Yum, choline! And peanuts are a member of a grouping of foods, the nuts, that Harvard found to have the strongest correlation with longevity, their measure of "health." But choline specifically is involved in the same brain functions that are impaired by botox injections, functions that seem to be related to interoceptive functions or ToM (alexithymic) functions. Should I prescribe peanut butter for autism, or am I being too hasty?

    A store by me sold meatless hamburger patties. I tried them and loved it. Too bad they stop selling it.

    Our Safeway carries Beyond Meat at $7 for four thin burgers.

    I start with dry soy meat, (TVP), which cost about $1 a pound, and makes about five pounds of finished product.

    Add enough water to make if soft but firm, too much water takes a long time to cook and can make it mushy.

    Grind it to the consistency of ground beef and fry it in soy oil until it starts to brown.

    Add chopped onion to taste and continue frying until the onion starts to brown.

    I add a packet of no name taco seasoning, and a minute or so later add tomato, tomato sauce or tomato paste, a little water and simmer.

    This make a great taco filling or sloppy joes.

    For burgers, I add a little gluten, (and sometimes an unfertilized egg), and fry or barbecue.

    We make a big batch and freeze patties for later.

    The finished product is nearly pure protein and taste better than Beyond Meat or Impossible Burger, at a small fraction of the cost.

    No wierd stuff in it, no steroids or antibiotics.

    You've got me wanting to try that. Thanks for sharing.

    I had a burger patty recipe some years ago which used ground toasted sunflower seeds in place of meat. I was following a vegetarian diet at the time, so I took some of these to a neighbourhood barbecue to ensure that I had something I could eat - apart from the salads and so forth, that is.

    For some reason, all the meat-eaters decided they liked these things, and I had to move fast so that I wouldn't go hungry.

    Hmmmm..... I wonder why Chick-Fil-a hasn't considered offering something of this ilk? Think of the ads "We NOW have burgers as well as Chicken"

    I'm semi-vegan. I eat cows which eat plants.
