For meat lovers

How about for those who are all about a hearty, meat-packed meal? While eating meat has plenty of benefits, it’s best not to overdo it. By eating less red and processed meat you have a lower risk of cancer, so why not cut out the steak for fish, beans and other healthier alternatives? 

It’s recommended that you eat less than 70g of processed or red meat a day. You can do this by making a few simple swaps, such as choosing chicken, beans or pulses over red or processed meat and stacking your plate with plenty of delicious veggies and salad so you still feel full and satisfied at the end of your meal. Making these small changes is not only better for your health, but it’s better for your wallet too. Try changing it up and eating a few veggie meals throughout the week to save a little extra on your food shopping. 

But for those nights where you can’t resist the temptation of a succulent steak, try some of these healthy, meaty recipes to get your meat fix while maintaining a balanced diet.

    Such a fabulous collection of recipes that are not only tasty but kinder to your body. It’s a great idea to create dishes like those listed above (even if you are not diagnosed with health issues). Unfortunately I have been diagnosed with gestational diabetes through my second pregnancy and have been trying hard to look after my baby and body and will certainly be rustling up the barbeque pork steak with Apple and garlic as it sounds so flavourful and easy to recreate.

    All the meat dishes sound incredible.

      As vegan it would have to be the rissoto. I love the earthy feel of the dish which is full of cruelty free protein
