We are flexitarians, bioscientists, community builders, and have created Beanlife to make good food for the fun of it. Home experiments with fermentation brought tempeh in our lives - we love it because it’s delicious, and just as much for what it represents: an aspiration to a lifestyle with good protein. For us, the good protein is plant based, ideally organic, artisanal rather than industrial, and locally made. A diet based on bean proteins enables us to eat, buy and produce locally, and make our small contribution to help our planet thrive again.
Ever since we discovered tempeh, we cannot believe it is so uncommon in Belgium. Some people call it the best kept protein secret in the world. Not anymore.
