Why Try Meatless?

Nutrition, From Our Kitchen

sage img

Interested in making a small step toward better health - eat less meat! Meats are a main source of saturated fats, which are known to contribute directly to heart disease. Grilling red meat can produce carcinogens, and processed meats contain additives that have been linked to cancer. While meat is a great source of protein, iron, zinc, and vitamin B12, hearty meat alternatives like tofu, seitan, and tempeh are high in protein and an excellent source of calcium, iron, and zinc. Beans and lentils are low in fat and loaded with protein, fiber, B vitamins, and iron. Quinoa, amaranth, and oats are grains that are not only high in fiber, but also provide a significant amount of protein, vitamins, and minerals. And don't forget the fruits and vegetables! Adding more fruits and vegetables can easily add substance to a meal and pack a nutritional punch. Try substituting meat with meat alternatives at one meal. You may open the door to a world of new food you didn't know existed.
