What to Expect

The Beyond Meat Burger was designed to "look, cook and satisfy like beef". And it does. Once cooked, these patties look exactly like a perfect medium rare beef burger. Not only does it look the same, but it also tastes the same. This might not be preference to all vegans and vegetarians. But for those starting out or who really miss that meaty taste, this is the ultimate vegan burger. The only difference between the Beyond Burger and the real thing, is that the Beyond is ever so slightly softer and more tender - the way a meat burger should be, but rarely is. For those keen to try out this burger for themselves, here are a few places now offering it.

Hudsons The Burger Joint

This burger joint has become a fast favourite among vegans for the fantastic burger choices. Their Beyond Meat offering, The Houdini, comes with mounds of vegan mozzarella, vegan bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and mustard. You can also substitute any of the other patties with a Beyond Meat Burger for just R35.

Many can complain about tons of things these days, the prices of food going up, the prices of petrol going up. I mean there are endless things to complain about but if there's one thing I do know, when it comes to food - everyone has been taken aback by all the changes that are being made to food. Processed food, unnecessary additives, brine and more so there is nothing better to give you peace of mind than Fresh Produce Spots.

One thing that is a complaining factor when it comes to food is that food has become almost toxic to our health, but we have to eat right. To starve to death or eat the unhealthy stuff? Not really much of a choice, however you can choose to make better and wiser decisions.

Changes...Change Is Good Right?

Many people are going organic and even some growing their own foods or are trying to find better ways to approach their eating habits by buying better foods. Yes! Eating the unhealthy stuff is quite yummy, but the best step to take would be buying fresh produce.

Let's check out some cool places that you can visit to buy amazing fresh foods...

Fresh Produce Spots

Fresh Produce Spots

Freshly Grown

They also have meat options and may I add that they also have the South African favourite, biltong. Can I get a yay! Freshly Grown also has bakery goods, some pantry items, fresh herbs - you can check out their options on their page.

Fresh Produce Spots

Bryanston Organic & Natural Market

If you are more of an alternative route type of person then the Bryanston Organic & Natural Market is the place too buy your stack of fresh goods.

They have really cool stalls with fresh foods situated in a market that has become one of Joburg's favourite so if you want to hit two birds with one store, this is the place to do it. You can find anything from fruits, vegetables, chopped relishes and spice - it's quite a mix. Definitely a fresh produce spot you should know.

Now, let's explore, switch things up, make better choices and be inspired to cook, chop and get creative with the idea of making good food.
