How replacing meat in dishes can help you slim

These days, people are being warned to cut down on their meat consumption for health reasons.

Those who eat meat are more likely to –
  • Develop heart disease (meat is full of fat that hardens the arteries)
  • Be obese as many types of meat are high in calories
  • Get bowel cancer – the long time it takes for meat to digest has been blamed for this
If you’re looking to lose some weight and get healthier, replacing meat in recipes with some vegetarian substitutes can really help.

Soya mince is ideal for shepherd’s pie and is much lower in calories than the beef that’s usually used as mince. Soya chunks can also be used in casseroles.

You can get Quorn in a number of different foods including sausages (why not have them with your sausage and mash), mince, sausage rolls, fillets and meat balls. Like Soya, it’s also lower in calories than its meaty equivalents. It also contains no cholesterol. Quorn is one of the tastiest vegetarian foods that there is.

As it contains egg, it is not suitable for vegans.

Example, if you use Quorn instead of beef to make spaghetti bolognaise, you will save almost 100 calories.

If you live in the UK, why not have a Celebration Roast from Redwood Foods instead of your normal roast? It’s made from wheat protein and in the package you get a meat free turkey roast, and sausages wrapped on vegetarian ham. And, don't forget the gravy and roasted potatoes!

Why not ditch the chicken and ham slices for the companies tasty Cheatin' Range? They have ham style, pepperoni style, chicken style, beef style and garlic sausage style and they are all lower in calories than their meat alternatives!

Note - all of Redwood's range contain NO egg, no GMO, no artificial flavorings and colorings and NO cholesterol. They're suitable for vegans. If you live in the USA or Canada, you can buy similar products that contain wheat protein.
