    Justin Sullivan/Getty Images The United States Department of Agriculture has updated its nutritional guidelines for all Americans, continuing to recommend limiting red meat and saturated fat.  The cattle industry has objected to the guidelines, on the grounds that they don’t adequately address beef, but instead refer more broadly to “protein foods” including plant-based options.  Beef industry and low-carb diet advocates claim that the advice ignores the latest science on saturated fat and red meat.  The guidelines aren’t controversial among mainstream nutritionists.

Mainstream supermarkets now stock foods made from plant-based protein next to its meat, poultry and fish. And in the toniest neighborhoods of major capitals, eateries that devote as much attention to atmosphere as they do to the menu serve up inventive, meatless dishes to a casually hip crowd.
