 I’ve always wanted to own a restaurant. This year, that dream became a reality for me. I’m super excited about my new business but also very nervous.

Impossible burger provides meat lovers a vegan option

Vegans are taking over the world one step at a time. What once began as a diet consisting of only pure fruits and vegetables, is now a diet that consists of hundreds of meat and dairy substitutes that not only taste as good as the real thing, but do not kill animals and damage the environment. The main goal of the impossible burger, as stated by the founder, Patrick Brown, is to create “uncompromisingly delicious and nutritious meat...
