Did anyone try the Quorn Swedish Meatballs?

They were AMAZING but have been discontinued now and me and my fiancee haven't really recovered despite that happening over a year ago now.

Chicken isn't too bad. But even still, think of all of the supplies that have to be shipped to a farm to look after the chickens in the first place, as well as having to grow food for them. Vegetables just get grown and shipped for the most part.

It's red meat that's the real big problem, they produce far more greenhouses gases and require many more resources to farm.

Also in regards to the whole "you need meat to have muscles" thing, where do people think the protein etc in animals comes from? Pretty much everything you get from meat you can get from plants in one form or another.

Speaking of Quorn, Wimpy do a Quorn burger and it's so good, they deliver too btw :D

I'd be all for putting the price of red meat up to make it more sustainable but as for that argument flying is considered a major contributor to CO2 so flying in ingredients from all over the world for one plate of food surely must have at least comparable emissions to a cow that lives in a field eating grass.

I don't know enough about it too be honest but from what I understand plant based protein doesn't have all of the BCAA's that animal based protein does.

So having less cows would help that problem or do you think we should just let them go extinct? That still wouldn't reduce those problems of a plant based diet.

What problems?

No, not go extinct, but we need to reduce meat intake by a ton. It needs to be seen as more of a special thing rather than "hurr durr it's not a meal without meat, let's have some shitty watery ham in my sandwich because animals are disposable"

I'm not opposed to people eating meat, it'd just be nice if people reflected on the impact of eating it a bit more.

The problem of flying produce in from all over the world, especially when some of it is heavily industrialised and it's impacting the areas that it's farmed, avocado's and almond milk for example.

So what I said then with regards to meat?

Love that argument.

What's even better is the overreaction from vegetarians. The argument was that cows produce methane and methane is bad so stop farming red meat. There was no mention of reduction or more ethical farming letting cows go extinct is the only logical solution. I mean is it out of the question if cow farming is that bad for the environment?

I didnt know we had a veggie thread

Im a veggie and I like it

I dont agree with the supply chain and the environmental impact so thats why I abstain, dont eat fish either

vegan doesnt appeal as dairy is a big part of my diet and they put milk powder and egg protein in everything

quorn and linda mccartney is really good

Im not militant though, I dont see why I wouldnt eat like a well sourced amazingly prepared steak in a restaurant once a year or something

cows wont go extinct, they just wont be bred so relentlessly and in such numbers

same with chickens, pigs etc

they tend to have really bad lives on the whole

I think there is a general shortage in the marketplace for Quorn products at the moment. There was a period after Christmas where our local Tesco didn't even have Quorn sausages. Maybe it's a massive increase in demand or maybe their product got shifted towards supplying manufacturers like Greggs.
