Zooey Deschanel Explores the Plant-Based Benefits of The Beyond Burger

November 28, 2017

It's time to rethink meat.

Zooey Deschanel stopped by the Beyond Meat HQ for the latest episode of her new series, Your Food's Roots. In partnership with The Farm Project, the show aims to remind us where our food comes from, and consequently, how it affects our bodies and our world as a whole. So how is the food industry evolving as we change our perspectives?

At the start of the episode, Zooey posed this question:

"Is there a future where we can get all the protein and nutrients we need from plants, but not lose what we love about meat?"

By the end of this video, the clear answer to this question is a resounding YES. On her search for a replacement for animal-based meat, Zooey sits down with Beyond Meat CEO, Ethan Brown, to try her first Beyond Burger. To our delight, Zooey was more than impressed!

"These meatless burgers taste, feel, and even bleed exactly like beef," Zooey Deschanel says.

Zooey goes on to elaborate that "It looks like meat, it tastes like meat, and it's the same micronutrient profile as a burger."

She also goes behind-the-scenes to explore the Beyond Meat R&D lab and cooks up some plant-focused recipes. Check out the full episode below, or click here and be sure to share with friends!
