I bought Impossible Burgers at the Grocery Outlet and compared to them to Beyond Meat burgers, also available on discount at the Grocery Outlet. My feeling is that people who crave meat may like Impossible Burgers but most vegetarians and vegans might prefer Beyond Meat. I’m scoring the Impossible Burger 3/5 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.
I recently found Beyond Meat burgers, the Cookout Classic 10-pack, on sale for $7.99 at the Grocery Outlet. This review looks at ingredients, cooking tips, and sustainability and I also compare the Beyond Meat burger to the Impossible Burger.
I bought hemp seed bars from Canadian brand, Hemp Yeah!, at the Grocery Outlet and they’ve become some of my favorite seed-based energy bars. Hemp Yeah! is a line of hemp-based products from Manitoba Harvest, several of which are available on discount at the Grocery Outlet. I’m giving the hemp seed bars 4 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.
I bought Quorn Meatless Turkey-Style Deli Slices at the Grocery Outlet last week and found them to be very similar to real turkey (as I remember it). Quorn Foods is a veteran of the vegetarian movement and although this product (which is vegetarian) doesn’t score as highly as Quorn’s vegan products, it still gets a very solid 4 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.
I bought two types of Nature’s Path cereal at the Grocery Outlet this month – Almond Nut Butter Crunch and Coconut Cashew Nut Butter Crunch. I thought that both were good and Nature’s Path does a really good job on sustainability metrics, reducing waste and carbon footprint and being a longtime pioneer in organic farming practices. 5/5 Green Stars for social and environmental impact!
I bought a box of Clif Chocolate Peanut Butter bars at the Grocery Outlet last week, from Clif Bar’s Sweet and Satly range. Overall, I think that Clif bar has been a leader in climate action and deserves an ethical score of 4.5 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.
I picked up a bottle of Califia Protein Oat milk at the Grocery outlet a week ago for $2 – it’s normally $6 at other stores. The Califia Protein Oat milk worked really well in my coffee and tea – it’s similar to Oatly, which I’ve also bought at the Grocery Outlet. Overall, I think that Califia Protein Oat milk deserves 4 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.
I found Kite Hill butter at the Grocery Outlet last week – $2.99 for the 8-ounce tub, normally $6 at other stores. I would say that it’s maybe slightly better than vegan spreads like Earth Balance but not quite as good as Miyoko’s vegan butter, in terms of taste. Overall, I think that Kite Hill butter deserves 3 Green Stars for social and environmental impact.
They are marketed as Whole Food Nut + Seed Bars, and the ingredient list verifies this: peanuts, pumpkin seeds and sunflower kernels are the top three ingredients and they also contain hemp and chia seeds and almond meal. Overall, I think that Purely Elizabeth bars deserve 4.5 Green Stars for social and environmental impact
Visiting the Grocery Outlet in October, I was most excited to find Beyond Meat sausages on sale for $3.49 – the Sweet Italian flavor of Beyond Sausage. I found three things are important to keep in mind when preparing them.
