Meatball Pasta with Beyond Meat is a great way to do dinner!
Dislcosure: This is a sponsored post; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
For years now, I have tried to find a meat alternative product that was gluten-free with no such luck. Almost every meat alternative contains gluten of some form and also soy. That was until now when I was introduced to Beyond Meat.
Beyond Meat has created a variety of proteins similar to typical meat products but they are using 100% plant-based products in the foods this means there is no gluten or soy in the product, also non-GMO products too!
Beyond Meat has actually struck a partnership with several elite athletes to help promote both the great taste and the benefits of plant protein. It is extremely nutritionally rich as well as being better for you without sacrificing the taste.
These athletes include J.J. Redick, David Write, Maya Moore, DeAndre Jordan, April Ross, Eric Bledsoe, Maggie Vessey, and Tia Blanco. They are from a variety of sports and are coming together to support Beyond Meat and the #FutureofProtein.
Again, one thing that we love is that there is no gluten. I like to add a meatless meal into our menu each week or one such as this using Beyond Meat. It works out perfectly for my family and helps keep the balance. Beyond Meat makes a wide range of products including Beyond Meat chicken and ground beef.
Beyond Meat is on a mission to be the Future of Protein. They would love to showcase how beneficial and helpful to society it is to make foods directly from plants.
We decided to take the challenge and do a little switch of our own. I swapped out traditional meatballs for Beyond Meat Meatballs in our latest Meatball Pasta. My daughter and husband ate up without even noticing that there was a difference, I won’t lie…I still haven’t told my husband! We will just keep that as our little secret, okay? Shhh….
My son picked up on the taste and texture difference fairly quickly, that was not surprising considering he is extremely picky when it comes to texture of foods.
Right now, Beyond Meat is hosting a giveaway where you could possibly win a variety of products! All you do is purchase your favorite Beyond Meat variety, then you do a little secret switch and share the result with your friends.
