Click those tongs twice and know why these Beyond Meat sausages deserve a spot on your grill

Beyond Meat

For those who want to eat a little healthier this barbeque season, Beyond Meat has what you need to fill up the plate at your next backyard gathering. Plant-based meats have become more appetizing over the years, and Beyond Meat is making sure that doesn’t change. Called the Beyond IV rollout, two sausages are already available for you to test out before the big holiday barbeques this summer. Click those tongs twice and know why these sausages deserve a spot on your grill.

The expanded Beyond Meat lineup

Made from a blend of non-GMO plant proteins like fava beans, brown rice, and mung beans, Beyond Meat products and switching to a plant-based diet could improve cholesterol levels while decreasing your risk for cardiovascular diseases. But enough about the health benefits, you want to know what flavors were cooked up.

Beyond Sausage Hot Italian-Style and Brat Original are the two new additions to the Beyond Meat lineup. If Hot Italian-Style sets your mouth on fire just thinking about it, Mild Italian-Style will drop later in the summer.

The upgrades to the new sausage

  • This product is American Diabetes Association’s Better Choices for Life certified.
  • Ditched out the not-so-great canola and coconut oils and replaced them with heart-healthy avocado oil.
  • Listened to notes from the last Beyond Sausage version and cut the saturated fat by 66%.
  • You’ll only see 2 grams of saturated fat in each sausage.
  • Upped the protein, so this sausage comes in at 17 grams per serving.
  • Less sodium, which is a concern about plant-based meats.

Beyond Meat listened to the concerns about the previous products and wanted to make sure everything going forward was better for you. Less fat, less sodium, and more flavor are the new sausage game’s rules.

And if you are unsure how to cook it or what to do to turn the sausage into a whole meal, let the people at Beyond Meat fix that. To give a cheer to the company and toast the next generation of products, it launched a free goodie. Go to the website and find an entire cookbook of recipes for Beyond Sauage and all the other Beyond Meat products.

No, you don’t have to go to a specialty store to find Beyond Meat to see if your family loves it. Grocery stores you’ve heard of carry a variety of products.

Go down the aisle at these stores

  • Sprouts
  • Albertsons
  • Publix
  • Whole Foods Market
  • Kroger

These are just some stores stocking the shelves with Beyond Meat items, so see if your local grocery store has them. Look for the rest of the gang, and try Beyond Burger, Beyond Beef, and Beyond Sausage, and have the entire cookout covered.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t add meat to your diet for personal reasons, want to eat healthier, or are trying to do your part to help the environment and planet. It also doesn’t matter if you’re not vegan. Vegan options aren’t for vegans exclusively, and these plant-based products are as tasty as animal products — without coming out dry and looking like something no one wants to eat.

Hot Dog Ideas Just in Time for National Hot Dog Day
fancy hot dog ideas best national hotdog day

National Hot Dog day is Tuesday, July 20, 2021, and what better way to celebrate than to take a look at some of the best hot dog brands out there. A hot dog, to avoid dispute, is a frankfurter made of seasoned smoked meat, usually beef and/or pork. The name hot dog originated in the 19th century and was U.S. college slang for frankfurter because the popular belief was they contained dog meat – clearly not the case.

Hot dogs have become a food staple and are consumed a lot during national holidays or weekend barbecues. The hot dog, its toppings, and even its buns differ from coast to coast. No matter what you call them, it’s the hotdog toppings that are the show stoppers. There has long been a debate about whether or not to put ketchup on a hot dog, but with these recipes, you won’t need to worry about ketchup.

Sai Oua, Northern Thai Sausage, Might Just Be Your New Favorite Sausage
Sai Oua Northern Thai Sausage Recipe Linger

Sausage is a great all-purpose meat. A mixture of different cuts of meat (sometimes from the same animal, sometimes not) and spices, its utility is what makes it so great. You can grill sausage, you can smoke it, you can add it to soups and stews, or slap it on a nice hoagie roll with some peppers and onions. The possibilities are near-endless.

Sausage, too, can be found in pretty much every meat-eating society in the world, thanks to the necessity of using every part of the animal one can in as efficient a manner as possible. Whatever was left over – blood, organs, fat, et cetera – was mixed together, preserved with salt and spices, and stuffed into casings made from the animal’s intestines as a means of making one animal last longer. Skip ahead centuries and we continue to embrace linked meats.
