photo.JPGWell, the Beyond Meat people have released a June pdf coupon for FREE products!  Just grabbed these six items and will head back later in the week to stock up.  We really, really, really love Beyond Meat – their beefy crumbles are so ground beef-like it’s scary!  I put three pouches in the crock pot on Sunday morning with a sliced onion, jar of salsa verde and some spicy marinated eggplant slices.  Let it simmer all day on low and dinner was served over leftover rice.  easy-peasy cooking at its finest!

If you’re trying to save paper, I suggest printing out a couple in BIG size because big scans, smaller doesn’t.  just sayin’  And why not share these coupons with carnivore friends (or use Beyond Meat for tacos) and change their minds about meat-free meals.
