Amazing Foods of the Future We’ll All Be Eating Soon

Climate change is spurring some really fascinating innovation…


Pea Milk: Better Than Animal Milk in Every. Single. Way.

Let me start by asking you a question. If you could drink milk that had eight times the amount of protein as almond milk, ½ the sugar as regular milk, and didn’t require cows on factory farms to be harmed in the process, would you try it? My guess is the answer is yes. Now, if you found out that it also tastes amazing, and has 50% more calcium than milk, would you drink it on the regular? My guess is the answer is ‘f&ck yes’!

Amazing Foods of the Future We’ll All Be Eating Soon

Pea milk has 8x the protein, half the sugar, and 50% more calcium than cow milk.

Welcome to the deliciousness that is Ripple Foods. From the same founder that brought you Method (listed as one of the fastest growing companies in America in the last 10 years), Adam Lowry needed a new challenge. When his daughter started asking him to bring home more “vegetable milk,” Ripple Foods was born.

In addition to all the positive benefits of drinking their pea milk, Ripple’s bottles are also made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic; and that plastic can be recycled in over 99% of households. It also requires 93% less water than milk (it takes 1000 gallons of water to make 1 gallon on dairy milk). Oh, and they only use non-GMO ingredients. Talk about a ripple effect! That sound you just heard was the mic drop.

Expect to see this incredible beverage on shelves across the country very soon, and you can likely already find it in your local Target store. So, before you pour regular old milk on your next bowl of cereal, make sure you remember to Ripple it up instead.

The future of food has never been so exciting. For us, for the planet, and for the animals. Check back in with us in the coming weeks, as we plan to post more on the deliciousness coming out of the incredible businesses taking our world by storm…

Which of these delicious foods are you most excited to try?

    Pea milk? Hmmm… I love milk, but just ensure that it’s tastier than milk because I hate peas.

    Can you imagine if we don’t eat meat, and the animals’ population increase, what will happen to earth? Everything here is living with a purpose, don’t ruin that.

    Meatballs!! I’ve been craving for meatballs, but I am on a diet now. I started to eat just veggies last month, and I don’t want to ruin my vegan life.

    The impossible burger is now possible. I tried this burger, and you can’t determine if it has meat, nor doesn’t contain one. It tastes one!

      It should’ve named possible burger because they made it. Lol ?
