Planning is key

 

+ Thank you to all the Chefs, Cooks and Restaurants who have kindly allowed us to share their delicious meat-free recipes for Meat Free Week.

PLANNING YOUR MEAT FREE WEEK

+ It’s a great idea to plan your meals for the seven days before Meat Free Week commences. It will make it so much easier (and more fun) to stick to your resolve. Our wonderful chefs & foodies have helped make it easy with their nutritious and delicious vegetarian meals.

+ Like most things in life, the greatest success comes from good planning. Think about when you’ll most miss meat and replace it with one of the fabulous recipes on this page.

+ Don’t forget that it’s important to eat protein with every meal, to fill you up and ensure you have long-lasting energy. You can access protein from non-meat sources such as legumes, beans, tofu, tempeh and the like.

Myth Busters

There are so many myths out there when it comes to diet and lifestyle. We thought we’d share some of the real facts with you:

MYTH: Vegetarian foods do not contain iron

FACT: There are two types of iron, haem iron (from meat) and non-haem iron (from plant based foods). Whilst it is true that haem iron is more readily absorbed, a diet rich in high iron plant based foods can provide the recommended daily intake of iron.

MYTH: Vegan diets are unhealthy

FACT: A vegan diet requires some planning to reach the recommended intake of nutrients. However providing this is taken into consideration vegan diets can be healthy and beneficial to many adults.

MYTH: I can’t get enough protein from plant based foods

FACT: Protein is present in most foods. Animal sources provide the highest amount of protein. A planned vegetarian diet can provide adequate amounts of protein for a healthy lifestyle.

MYTH: I will be hungry if I don’t eat meat

FACT: Protein has the highest satiety factor. Providing a diet contains adequate protein it is unlikely that a person will be hungry. Additionally plant based foods contain fibre which helps to make a person feel full for a long period of time.
