Along with most of the population I've made a new years resolution to eat more healthy foods, cut out sugar and do more exercise, I did this last year and kept it up for 6 months and I felt great unfortunately I went on holiday and enjoyed myself a little too much and then just couldn't get back into it when I got home so I'm starting fresh this year and hoping I can stick to it this time.
An essential part of my diet while I'm dieting and exercising is protein and a great source of healthy protein is Quorn. Protein, accompanied by exercise as part of a healthy lifestyle, can help you to improve muscle mass, which could help you to increase your overall strength. It can reduce the time needed to recover after a tough jog or strenuous workout, and it forms an essential part of the antibodies that keep you feeling healthy. It’s inside your hair and nails too, so eating plenty of high quality protein can leave you looking, and feeling, great.
Some protein sources can come with saturated fat, but not Quorn. Products like Quorn Meat Free Mince, Quorn Meat Free Chicken Pieces and Quorn Sausages are a nutritionally healthy protein source*, which can help you maintain normal bones and muscle mass. These products are also a source of fibre and low in saturated fat– ideal for if you lead an active lifestyle.
It’s recommended that we all eat 50g of protein every day. Products like Quorn Mince offer high protein content but with less saturated fat to other similar protein sources. You can mix Quorn products with other healthy protein foods, like kidney beans, to make delicious meals. A serving of Quorn Chilli at 399 calories has more than 20g of protein and just 0.8g of saturated fat.
