In 2017, plant based\u00a0eating thrived all over the world. On the cusp of the new year, plans are already being made to increase vegan and vegetarian accessibility, not only for those currently following said diets\u00a0but also for those who still eat meat. In January 2018, Reroot Foods will launch\u00a0GOODMINZ\u00a0in the UK, making it the UK's first vegan mince made from vegetables. GOODMINZ\u00a0was created by Richard Reeves, a former chef, and food development specialist. Reeves is enthusiastic about the product, believing it will fit in nicely with the plant based future. Reeves explained: \u201cPeople are increasingly on the lookout\u00a0for delicious and convenient plant-based food products. But finding them isn\u2019t always easy and the food values of many vegetarian and vegan products aren\u2019t particularly inspiring for the home cook. GOODMINZ changes all that." This vegan mince can be shaped into burgers, sausages, and meatballs \u2014 making it a popular selection for people of all diets. It can also be used as a crumble in both wraps and pasta, as well as a topping on pizza. GOODMINZ\u00a0comes in purple, green, orange, and brown. Each is filled with five different, fresh minced vegetables and other superfoods like chickpeas and quinoa. They're only lightly seasoned, making them perfect for customization.

Rather than making the leap from meat to vegetable bowls, people looking to reduce their meat consumption can look to products like this, which resemble more familiar foods, as well as many other meat substitutes.
