Longeve Plant Based Products Review

Plant based products are becoming very popular, and I am happy when I receive some to try. Today, the company Longeve, sent me over some of their plant based products, and I will be using them to make lunch and dinner for the family.

Longeve, has created plant based protein crumbles, and plant based bread crumbs, all from nutritious pea protein. In every serving you get 40 grams of this protein. The products are simple to use, by reconstituting them with hot water. This makes them easy to use, and fast to create some yummy recipes, at home or on the go, like camping, or even in a office kitchen. Also these plant based protein products are great for those in college who want to eat healthy but don't always have time to cook.

The company name says it all, it stands for "longevity", and when we eat healthy that is just what we are giving not only to our bodies, but our planet.

All the ingredients in Longeve products are preservative free, and non gmo's. The company is purely focused on food that benefits our health and food that will promote sustainability. Best of all they are easy, fast, and will fit your lifestyle what ever it may be.

So to get started for my families lunch, I made some burgers with the Longeve plant based protein crumbles. In the bag you see these tan like crumbles, and it's hard to believe by just adding hot water, they turn into a burger. This is a great product that you can use to replace any meal or recipe calling for meat. It's made from pure pea protein, and when you taste it, you will never know that. It taste just like what you create. Making a burger, it tastes like a burger, making some meat sauce for pasta, it taste like you added hamburger. And if your watching your waist line, this product total per serving is only 220 calories. So you can have that burger, or meat dish with out the guilt. Another great thing about plant based products like these protein crumbles is they are more cost effective. The 6oz package, will give you a equivalent of three pounds of ground meat, and with today's price's the protein crumbles save you a ton of money. The protein crumbles have a longer shelf life as well, there is no freezer needed, and if you have some left over in the bag, you don't have to throw them away, like real meat. These protein crumbles don't have any flavor added to them, that is all up to you, which makes that a fantastic feature. If you want the taste of taco's then go ahead and add your taco seasoning, the same went for my burgers. As far as texture, when you reconstitute, it looks just like ground beef. You  will never know your not eating real hamburger meat, as long as you season your protein crumbles to fit your recipe. It passed my families test, they did not know until after, that they we're eating a protein plant based product, I wanted their true opinions.

Moving on to dinner, I made some Jalapeno poppers, and coated them with Longeve gluten free breadless crumbs "Panko Style". They coated the Jalapenos just like other breadcrumbs would have, in fact looking at this product, it looks like that other kind. The Panko breadcrumbs are made from 100 % pea protein as well. And they can replace any type of traditional breadcrumb you need to use for your dish. This plant based product is plain and you can once again add any seasoning's you wish, or if you want go ahead and use it plain. Whether making meatballs, or using them to coat a pork chop, or coat a chicken breast, you will not taste the difference from this product then that of a traditional breadcrumb. The plant based breadcrumbs will also work as a topping for a nice mac and cheese dish. The Jalapeno poppers I made, we're done so in my air fryer, and the plant based Panko crumbs held up perfectly, giving them a golden coat and nice crisp. They are easy to use, all I did was spray my stuffed Jalapenos really good with some coconut oil spray, then rolled them in the Panko crumbs from Longeve, and in the air fryer they went. These plant based breadless panko crumbs will be a healthy replacement for alternative crumbs, with great nutritional value.

My main dish was some chicken nuggets, in which I used the Longeve gluten free breadless plain crumbs. They to are a premium product made with the same plant based pea protein ingredients. I made my chicken nuggets in the same manner as my Jalapeno poppers, just coating them in my coconut oil spray really well, then rolling them in the plant based plain bread crumbs. As I did with the panko, I seasoned the crumbs with my own seasoning mixture. The chicken nuggets came out of the air fryer, very golden and crispy, and the plant based plain breadcrumbs held up perfectly again. The taste and texture is better then traditional, because you control the seasoning and or the spice. These breadless breadcrumbs definitely make a wonderful replacement for the traditional breadcrumb, and provide a much healthier option.
