The Journal of Hunger & Environmental Nutrition reported that vegetarians can save at least $750 annually over meat eaters by reducing or replacing consumption of animal products and switching to sources that adhere to higher animal welfare standards.
The Impossible Burger simulates the sizzle, the smell and the juicy first bite of the real thing to rave reviews. The similar Beyond Burger is a hit at Whole Foods Markets.
