Normally I do not plug for corporations and I assiduously avoid fast food restaurants because of the pauper wages that they pay their workers. Also, fast food tends to be absolutely terrible for you. Well, I succumbed to the commercial touting the taste of the Impossible Whopper and the commercial, quite surprisingly, told the truth. The Impossible Whopper tastes exactly like its beef counterpart.
Admittedly I was very skeptical and almost opted for a Sunday afternoon pizza at my favorite pizza place, Seasons, but continued on to my intended destination: Burger King. I’ve never been a fan of mayonnaise so I did get my Impossible, sans mayo. I even thought that they would just dump a load of salt in it to try and mask the taste. Surprisingly, it did not taste terribly salty and has not left me thirsty.
A year and a half ago, I had gastric bypass so my digestive system is now a little bit wonky but that is okay. The Impossible is a pretty dense patty so I really managed only about half of it before feeling finished. I feel pretty good after eating it and I am digesting it fairly normally. I think I could get behind this concept of eating a whole lot less animal protein. I do not think I will go completely vegan/vegetarian but there is something to be said for a move to majority plant-based protein.
