Trying meat alternatives can be good for the environment and your health. Meat has been linked to heart disease, cancer, and obesity. Trying meat alternatives can also be an opportunity to try some new flavors and textures. If you want to watch me discuss, here's a link to my FB Live on meat substitutes.

tempeh and tvp are good substitutes for ground meat in chili, sloppy joes. Note: tvp needs rehydration
