Quorn, Leader in Easy Vegetarian Meals, Explores the Financial Benefits of a Plant-Based, Mediterranean Diet
Date:4/29/2013

Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) April 29, 2013

On April 29, 2013, Quorn, a leader in vegetarian and soy free meals, responds to an article published in One Green Planet about the financial benefits of a plant-based, Mediterranean diet.

According to One Green Planet, a new study published in the March issue of the Journal of Hunger and Environmental Nutrition, concluded that participants who took part in the 34-week study saved almost $40 a week by following plant-based Mediterranean recipes given to them by instructors.

Additionally, a total of 83 participants took part in the study of which roughly half of the participants lost weight. The participants were taken from emergency food pantries and low-income housing sites.

Because meat, poultry and seafood are often the most expensive items of food, consuming a plant-based diet helped the participants save money. As an added benefit, the plant-based diet also improved the health of many of the participants.

Quorn Foods, leaders in soy free and easy vegetarian meals, knows how hard it can be financially for people to make the switch to a vegetarian diet. “This new study is great,” said Quorn representative David Wilson. “Not only can people eat healthier, but now switching to a vegetarian diet can save you money too. People often think making a major diet change can end up costing them extra money, but using Quorn products in addition to making other vegetarian changes can actually put more money back in the consumer’s pockets. Quorn tastes great compared to other meatless competitors, so you do not have to sacrifice taste for health.”

Looking for a healthy alternative to meat? Unlike other meat-alternative manufacturers, Quorn uses mycoprotein: a healthy, naturally occurring alternative protein source that replicates the taste and texture of meat, while being significantly lower in saturated fats and calories. Quorn Foods offer a wide range of products, including ready-to-serve meals, snacks, and food for your barbecue -- as well as ingredients to make your own nutritious, meat-free dishes from scratch. The wonderful taste of Quorn's meatless meals lets you experience the foods you love without sacrificing nutrition.
