“Legumes are high in protein and the best source of soluble fibre" Amelia Christie-Miller, founder of the Beans Over Burgers campaign

Discover what Holly and Molly have to say about the new McPlant burger launch and what to expect from Waitrose’s new Plantlife range. The girls also discuss the new Meat Atlas report and the upcoming film Eating Our Way To Extinction, featuring Kate Winslet.

For this week’s taste test, they try the new vegan Baxters soups, Ilchester‘s Vegan Blue and Melting Mature cheese, and – eek – some of Tesco’s Christmas range!

This week’s listener questions are all about organic food (is it actually better for us?) and ancient grains (what are they and why should we eat them?). To submit your questions to Holly and Molly, email [email protected].

In this weeks interview, Amelia Christie-Miller believes in beans so much that she set up her own company. Now she’s campaigning for the future of food to focus on beans rather than meat replacement products. Find out why beans are so good for us and our soils…

Coming up next week, the girls take on a Whole Food Plant-Based Challenge with guidance from nutrition advisor and vegan chef Lisa Marley.
