Plant protein

How do I repace meat?

THere are several existing alternatives to animal proteins, you just have to be aware of them. (Non exhaustive list).

> beans are a primary source of plant protein: naturally rich in iron, fibre, and other nutrients.

In this food category we come across: peas, beans, lentils, etc.

> Grains (quinoa, corn, bulgur, rice, etc.) are also a good alternative to meat. Rich in carbohydrates and proteins, they contain many minerals. It is important to know that the combination of grains + beans supplies your body with all the amino acids necessary for its proper functioning.

> Oilseeds: almonds, nuts, sesame seeds, etc.

Can I eat your products as a daily meat replacement?

Our products are very good for your health but should be consumed as part of a balanced diet. We do not recommend you eat them everyday, simply because it is important to have a varied diet that includes different protein sources.

Pourquoi réduire sa consommation de viande ?

Vegging up your meals can benefit both the environment and your health!

> Meat production causes pollution: intensive livestock rearing is a huge source of greenhouse gases, deforestation, tremendous water waste, and soil pollution. To have sufficient yield, antibiotic use in animals is highly common.

> An over-consumption of meat can also negatively impact your health: eating too much animal protein is unhealthy for your body.

Excess protein, fat, and fatty acids promote bad cholesterol and certain cardiovascular diseases.

Plant proteins exist (beans, grains, oilseeds, etc.) and supply you with the necessary protein intake to avoid any deficiencies.

> Meat is expensive: poultry, beef, pork, lamb… consuming meat on a daily basis calls for a pretty hefty budget.

To sum up: eating too much meat negatively impacts the planet, animals, and your own health: try to reduce your meat consupmtion a bit and to to focus on high-quality nutrition :).
