Plant-based meat patties do an ace job at satisfying cravings for meat. Because they taste just like the real thing, you may be tempted to overcrowd your vegetarian diet with too many of these substitutes. Mock char siew is mouth-watering, but just like soya-based burgers, meat substitutes are highly processed with tons of artificial ingredients and chemicals. Enjoying juicy plant-based cheeseburgers once in a while is necessary to stay sane, but do not opt for it as your regular choice of protein as these patties contain almost no protein, fibre or nutrients.
