Healthier Eating with Quorn
This year one of my aims is to lead a healthier lifestyle and diet. I would say even though I allow myself treats I eat fairly well most of the time and although there are improvements I could make I do enjoy cooking and I want to be able to eat nice meals. I am a meat eater and I don't think I could ever become a veggie, as much as I like vegetables, I would miss bacon butties, steak and roast chicken too much!
I recently went to my sister's for dinner and she made Lasagne and asked if I noticed anything different...which I couldn't! She told me she had used Quorn mince and I honestly couldn't tell the difference! I must admit that I have never really thought of using Quorn instead of meat before and I didn't realise that they do bacon, chicken fillets, steak and even a roasting joint! The main constituent of Quorn, is a naturally occurring, high quality, healthy form of protein and it replicate the taste and texture of meat exceptionally well, as well as containing less fat.
If you and your family haven’t tried Quorn before, try making one of their favourite meals with it and see if they notice the different? You can find Quorn recipes on their website, and you can make the dishes (or try some of your own recipes but replace meat with Quorn substitute) and upload pictures and share recipes to the Facebook Wall.
Have you tried Quorn? Did you notice a different in taste?
