Dairy, meat and eggs account for 83% of our diets footprint. Over the last decade markets have been shifting and companies have been racing to invent a wide range of non-animal products. When it comes to meat alternatives, did you know that most of what fills the ‘’veggie foods’’ sections in our supermarkets are not necessarily healthy and sustainable products, but can be ultra-processed foods, with no nutritional benefits? In this post I review three categories of meat alter
Hello the fans and the curious! We are coming back from our holidays all vaccinated for #covid19 and eager to participate in the city life again! Save the dates: 26 September and 9 October 2021 We are organising two workshops to share the passion for tempeh and teach you how to make your own artisanal tempeh at home. We started with minimal equipment a few years back, and you can do it too! Never before has there been a better time to produce our own food, especially food tha
Hello summer! If you are anything like us, summer is catching you ready to leave the lockdown and enjoy outdoor barbecues again!
As a flexitarian, vegetarian or vegan, you are always looking for new alternatives to the meat barbecue. Guess what?! Tempeh is great on an outdoor grill, especially when you have a magic sauce to sprinkle on it.
We found this recipe last summer on the website of someone called Billy from "Billy's tempehs online workshop": www.leukegeit.nl, and w
Fastfood isn't always junkfood! A great statement by Veganoo to present their vegan pitaburgers with healthy homemade toppings. Veganoo launched in Brussels a few months ago and is the first vegan fusion burgerbar. When we first tried it, we loved the pickled cabbage, the fresh greens and the plethora of sauces, from Middle Eastern to Hawaiian, making it the absolute vegan fusion food bar. All the Veganoo toppings are based on herbs and spices, more than salt - which is the h
In 2019, me and Winnie began a transition to what we like to call a greener lifestyle, with more mindful consumption patterns: less plastic, less waste, less meat and so on. In 2020 we founded Beanlife to enjoy living with MORE of something: more exciting and more natural plant protein, which is what our tempeh products mean for us. Having great alternatives diminishes the cost of change so that no one has to sacrifice. Ultimately, living more sustainably should also mean liv
Holidays are our chance to gather the family around a delicious meal. Sadly, in 2020 we missed many new adventures together with loved ones. What if you could end the year with a delicious food moment? This December, Beanlife offers you a Discovery Pack of tempeh products and recipes to help you create that special moment. If you don't know tempeh yet, all the better to try something new! Tempeh is a plant based meat alternative that gets its rich taste from a ripening proces
Since earlier this year, our Beanlife team has been working hard in research and development. In a project called Food from Food supported by Flanders Food, we began to incorporate 'waste streams' from oil production companies into our products. The truth is, these foods are anything BUT waste - we are talking about nutty fibers which are not currently valorised as they should. We strongly believe tempeh is a technology for making new tasty food, and we would like to use it t
