If you read about food, it’s impossible to escape mention of the Impossible Burger. The plant-based burger has become a sensation among those who practice a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle but miss the taste and texture of a burger.
Depending on what you read, beef has become the food villain. Many want to blame beef for everything from causing disease to warming the planet.
None of this is deserved. Beef, especially 100% grass-fed beef, provides many health benefits.
One of the major talking points on climate change in recent years have been this: People should cut back on eating meat, as it will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and contribute toward slowing down climate change.
That’s an attractive thought. Simply change your eating habits and help save the planet.
But is it true?
So, what is the history of the hamburger? It includes the wisdom of cattle ranchers 10,000 years ago, Romans, Mongolians and, most importantly in terms of direct influence, the great steaks of Hamburg, Germany.
But it took the vision of American entrepreneur to turn it into one of the most popular sandwiches on the planet.
