Ever have a bad day? Did your dog die? Your woman left you for your best friend? Your horse run off with that wild stallion? Broke your last git-tar string? Coffee run out? Whiskey, too? Dusty trail whipping sand in your face & tumblweeds frolicking ever-where – mocking your pain? Ten gallon hat feeling 5 gallons flat? Feeling slow on the draw? Plum outta chaw? That saloon whore left you feeling itchy in places nobody wants to be itchy? Has your get up & go just got up & went? Has one final-straw motherfucker used the phrase “assless chaps” – as if ASSLESS was not the fucking DEFINITION of chaps – otherwise they’d just be called fucking PANTS?
Need a little comfort food to go with your moonshine but you can’t really cook or you are too exhausted, anyway? Well – giddy-up, cowboy!
Beyond Meat to the rescue!
Beyond Meat has done it again! Very soon, 4 different, single-serving frozen meals will become available. They might already be available at Whole Foods in the frozen meal aisle. I was lucky enough to find one of each kind and I will talk about the Vegetarian Roasted Sweet Potato Chili here today.
Zaps in the microwave in between 3-6 minutes. And an even lower calorie count (compared to the Korean BBQ & Vietnamese Lemongrass) – with only 270 calories!!! I like my food spicy so I added a squirt (or ten) of Crystal hot sauce to this & it was perfect! And for those concerned about protein intake – this has 21 grams! This dish was hearty for 270 calories & I bet meat eaters would never guess it is vegan. Tough to cook on a campfire but you are probably glamping, anyway. So far – Beyond Meat has hit it out of the park with the three I’ve tried. My review of the fourth coming soon!
Non-GMO & 100% vegan – this is a welcome new dish in the convenience food market. I highly recommend it! Vegan, non-GMO & right in the ballpark with Lean Cuisines (et al) with a very low calorie count. Win-win-win!
