Plant protein

How can I replace meat?

There are lots of alternatives to animal protein available, you just have to get to know them. (Not a complete list)

> Legumes, which include peas, beans, lentils, etc., are a main source of plant protein, and are rich in iron, fiber, and other nutrients.

> 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.

Why reduce our meat consumption?

Vegifying your meals is good for your health and the environment!
> Meat production causes pollution: intensive livestock farming is a leading contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, water waste and soil pollution. Livestock animals are also commonly treated with antibiotics in order to meet consumer demand.

> 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.
In short, eating too much meat is bad for the animals, the planet, and your health. Try consuming less meat and instead focusing on high-quality nutrition. 🙂
