Quorn is well known as being a vegetarian alternative to meats, but it’s also a great healthy alternative. My Dad who struggles with his cholesterol now eats it a lot, and has found it to be a good help in his fight against the big C. My Mum who is the cook of their house always keep a pack of the mince in freezer ready too use.
So what makes Quorn so great for a healthy diet?
Low in fat and calories, while also being a great source of protein, fibre and essential amino acids.
I have to admit although my family eat Quorn and I know of it through them, prior to writing this post I myself hadn’t tried it so for the past few weeks I have been trying some of there range to see what I thought. The first thing the I realised was the range they do is so much bigger than I expected with everything from ready meals, ingredients to help you cook from scratch and deli items. I had ups and downs while trying different things, some things I loved, and some I wasn’t so keen on. I have quite a problem with some meats and although I love the taste I cannot eat them without them repeating on me, so it was fantastic to find that Quorn sausages not only taste like a ‘normal’ sausage but I can eat them without having to deal with after effects.
From talking to my Mum I have found that the mince is a very useful cooking ingredient to have ready in the freezer. Not only can it be used straight from the freezer but it is also absorbs the spices, herbs and sauces it maybe being cooked with well.
I honestly couldn’t tell the difference a lot of the time, and Quorn didn’t seem to rest so heavily on my stomach after eating it. It’s definitely something I will eat again.
Have you every tried Quorn? If you haven’t why don’t you take up the challenge of substituting Quorn into your families favourite meal? You can even find recipe ideas on their website and you can even upload your finished meal onto their facebook wall to share with everyone.
I would love to know if you try or have tried Quorn what’s your favourite meal? And can you tell the difference?
