In Brief The Facts: KFC debuted its very first plant-based item yesterday with great results. Reflect On: As we move toward a more health-conscious society, it is in these seemingly minor shifts in the mainstream that we will start to see huge shifts all around. But are these foods truly healthy? Should we be focusing on whole food plant-based diets? Yesterday, KFC debuted its plant-based chicken, Beyond Fried Chicken, at a single Atlanta, Georgia restaurant. This product was developed in partnership with Beyond Meat and could be ordered in two varieties: wings or nuggets. Why is this news? Well, if you’ve been following the mainstream growth of plant-based diets, you know that this is not the first partnership of its kind. Beyond Meat has hit the market in partnership with A&W, Tim Hortons, Burger King, Subway, and now perhaps due to its popularity – KFC as well. This event was really a test to see if they (KFC) should expand distribution as part of an official menu addition across the board, and based on the response am sure we will start to see this vegan option availability spread like wildfire.
On top of that, it requires 99% less water, 93% less land, and 90% fewer greenhouse gas emissions, and 46% less energy to make Beyond Meat products when compared to a beef product.
and then one hour later their toilets were all clogged.

Yuck. Talk about super processed food. No thanks.
I'll go with natural, not processed food. If I want plants I'll eat plants, if I want meat I'll eat meat. All natural, please.
But I suppose the cycle is becoming complete. Now I can have fake food, accompanied by fake social media friends and fake news. VR can provide me with fake experiences.
What more can a person ask for?
