Honestly alot of meat substitutes are not healthy for you. There are alot of added chemicals and preservatives and in the end it would be better to eat whole natural proteins in their original form.

Morningstar Farms's Spicy Black Bean Burger lists this as their ingredients. Right away you can tell from its ingredients that it is NOT phase 1 approved.

Ingredients: Textured vegetable protein (soy protein concentrate, wheat gluten, water for hydration), cooked black beans, cooked brown rice, onion, corn oil, egg whites, diced tomatoes, roasted corn, whole kernel corn, bulgur, mild green chili peppers, contains 2 percent or less of calcium caseinate, corstarch, onion powder, spices, tomoato juice, tomato (dried), dextrose, yeast extract, garlic powder, salt, hydrolyzed vegetable protein (corn gluten, wheat gluten, soy protein), autolyzed yeast extract, natural and artificial flavors from non meat sources, paprika for color, soy sauce, jalapeno peper, citric acid, xanthan gum, disodium inosinate, calcium chloride, caramel color, lemon oil, lactic acid.

Wheat, rice, corn, bulgur, and yeast are not allowed on phase 1. Not to mention so many of those additives are almost unpronouncable, which is a red flag for bad-for-you additives.

Sparkrecipes Chef Meg has a recipe for black bean burgers, which is probably healthier, but it still contains alot of flour and breadcrumbs.

I would avoid these black bean burgers!

Look at the ingredients and not the nutritionals. Any source of wheat or grains or sugars or corn?

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie
