A healthy approach to food this new year.

I intend to start this year a bit more health conscious than I did last year! I love cooking Especially fresh, home cooked family meals. Something that I am very happy to have tried last year is Quorn. Having never tried it before , you may recall how surprised I was that their was such a big range (offering over 100 products). Since our first taste of Quorn, we have enjoyed many a Quorn meal. We are not vegetarians, but since finding out that Quorn is a great source of protein, as well as being low in saturated fat, I have been happy to incorporate it into our family meal plan.

Mycoprotein, the main ingredient used to make Quorn products, is a healthy protein source and good source of dietary fibre. Protein contributes to the maintenance of normal bones.  As I mentioned above it is low in fat -especially saturated fat. Reducing the amount of saturated fat in the diet can help to maintain normal blood cholesterol levels as part of a healthy lifestyle and a varied and balanced diet.

But don't just take my word for it, Olympian Gold medal winner Mo Farah also uses Quorn in his diet!

He said “When I'm not training, there’s nothing better than a nice family meal. I often get asked if I indulge when I'm not training but the truth is, my lifestyle doesn't really change when I’m off the track. In our house, we eat Quorn Mince; it’s a healthy protein that’s low in
saturated fat. It allows you to enjoy all those family favourites, such as Chilli and Spaghetti Bolognese, safe in the knowledge that you’re eating a healthily with less saturated fat.” 

To find out more about Quorn products and to watch some delicious Quorn recipe videos take a look at the Quorn YouTube Channel.
