Honest Mum and family

Those who follow me on the blog and social, will know that I became plant-based a year ago, almost to the day, and I’ve never felt happier or healthier. 

While my kids are not plant-based, they regularly eat and enjoy non-meat and dairy meals and luckily there’s are lots of delicious and nutritious meat-alternatives on the market now, making our lives easier while helping out our precious planet.

Enter stage left, The Meatless Farm Co, based in my hometown of Leeds no less, who have created an array of delicious plant-based products with their lip-licking vegan mince, sausages and burger patties which are loaded with taste and texture.

They’re on an important mission to not only excite your taste-buds and keep you feeling full, but also to help you reduce your meat consumption, making swapping out meat dishes easy.

To inspire you on your way, the Meatless Farm Co have launched The Meatless Consumption Target, a campaign aimed at encouraging UK households to switch to one more plant-based meal per week in order to benefit the earth and this family is right behind them.

And you should be too. 

The Meatless Farm Co

Here comes the science bit.

According to new scientific data analysed by environmental scientist Joseph Poore, if everyone in the UK switched just one red meat meal to a plant-based meal per week, it would cut the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions by a WHOPPING 50 million tonnes (8.4 %) – the equivalent of taking 16 million cars off the road in one year- resulting in up to an 8.4 percent reduction in the UK’s total carbon emissions.

The data also demonstrates that switching just one red meat meal to plant-based a week could result in a 23% reduction (8 million hectares) in the UK’s domestic and international farmland use, and a 2% reduction in the UK’s water use, or the same as taking 55 fewer showers per person per year.

WOW!

The Meatless Farm Co believes one of the key barriers to people switching to plant-based is a lack of tasty, meat free alternatives that have a similar texture to meat and can be used in family favourite meals such as spaghetti bolognaise and chilli con carne, and thankfully took to task by creating yummy plant based mince that was quick to cook, sausages and patties too (that my kids couldn’t even tell were different to animal-based dishes).

I even added vegan cheese to the burgers, and cooked up an epic vegan bolognaise they gobbled up last Sunday for a long lunch.

    Absolutely amazing! Me and my daughter are both vegan and have been for about a year now. Any type of deduction of animal products makes a difference. I didn’t even know about The Meatless Farm Co, definitely something to look into.

    Thanks!

    I think it is really important to have some meat free meals every week. The benefits to your family are very well documented for health. Looks like a great product and I’m going to give it a try.

    We’ve recently cut down on meat, eating veggie a few times a week. This company sounds really good – will check them out. Having alternatives like this is so handy in helping cut out meat. x

    I’ve actually been thinking a lot recently about a meat-free day each week for me and the girls, but was worried about how my limited cooking skills would cope! This looks like it takes the hard work out of making the switch… will keep an eye out next time I’m in Sainsbury’s…
