#75: Beyond Meat Goes Public, Vegans Go Mainstream

May 2, 2019

Vegans were the bud of jokes for years, but with the rise of plant-based meats, and the announcement that vegan powerhouse Beyond Meat is now being publicly traded, no one is laughing anymore.

From Del Taco to Burger King, plant-based meats are really hitting their stride in major restaurants, and it is becoming a social norm faster than anyone could have predicted. 

On this week's episode we bring in chef Skyler Tanksley, co-founder of Munchies Vegan Diner, and our resident food scientist Constantine Spyrou to break down the current plant-based movement, and what we can expect in the future.
