Happy Monday, I hope everyone is having a productive day and looking forward to enjoying the week ahead with some delicious healthy food. Today I wanted to try something new and investigate the meat alternatives popping up on the shelves in British supermarkets. With all these choices it is becommining easier and easier to adopt a plant based lifestyle.
However not everyone however agrees with non meat eaters consuming foods that mimic meat. It is infact a controversial subject and I have been asked many times “Why would you want to eat food that looks like meat!” Now for me personally I do not see any issue in eating meat alternatives and I could also easily stop eating the alternatives (as I don’t eat them very often). Today however I have decided to try no meat teriyaki strips as they sound pretty interesting and I’m sure they will create a delicious dish .
While eating a plant based diet it is important to ensure the foods you consume are nutrient rich, this recipe is not something I would recommend to eat every day however the variety of vegetable do provide nutrients and it tastes absolutely delicious. Meat alternatives make a nice addition to a meal and when transitioning to vegan or vegetarian diet some meat eaters may miss meat products and this works as a good substitute when transiting. This is a cheat meal and it’s super simple to make and all the ingredients are very affordable and can be bought from ASDA or Aldi. Below are the 3 simple steps to make this delicious meal.
