This Plant-Based Food Delicacy is Now in the Lake Oswego Safeway

Michelle Jaqua

Since the beginning of the year, my husband and I decided to eat a more plant-based diet.

The decision has multiple reasons; We both want to improve our health and lower our cholesterol. We also see the impact of animal husbandry on the environment and want to help reduce that ecological impact in our own individual way.

I personally want to do my part to reduce the mistreatment of animals raised for food.

For the past three months, we've explored our food favorites which are plant-based, and there have been some hits and misses.

One huge hit for us is the product Beyond Meat™. This is a product that looks like hamburger and tastes as close to beef as we have come so far in our plant dining adventure.

When we first discovered Beyond Meat™, the product was only in higher-end markets: Whole Foods, New Seasons, and Zupans. I don't do my regular grocery shopping in these stores. My grocery shopping is at Safeway, Fred Meyer, or Walmart in West Linn.

The other day I was grocery shopping, and there it was, Beyond Meat™ in the meat section! Along with the burger, they also have bratwurst called Beyond Sausage®. My husband and I tried this and love it with stir-fried vegetables, or on a bun with some stone-ground mustard and sauerkraut.

Having this product more mainstream is a great change for us. If you are looking to eat more plant-based for your health or whichever other means, try Beyond Meat™ and decide if you'd like to incorporate it into your diet.
