Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) December 28, 2012
On December 28, 2012, Quorn Foods Inc. releases a statement following a North County Times article by Linda Copp regarding how to get the most out of your vegetarian healthy food diet.
According to the North County Star article, “It has been proven that diet influences athletic performance and a vegetarian diet is able to supply all of the energy and nutrients that athletes need to successfully complete their next workout or competition.”
The article states that a vegetarian diet will benefit a person nutritionally in all stages of life, yet it may require extra planning to get all the nutrients needed. The article mentions important nutrients such as proteins, iron, calcium, as well as D & B vitamins.
The article states, “Vegetarian diets are linked to various health benefits including decreased incidence of heart disease, lower LDL (bad) cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, lower rates of type 2 diabetes and lower body mass index.” The article states that for athletes to get the nutrition they need, they will have to turn to a variety of foods.
North County Start reports that beans and grains provide protein, plant foods provide iron, greens and nuts provide calcium and cheese and yogurt provide you with B12. The article informs athletes that, “To maximize performance and recovery, it’s recommended that you enhance your intake of beans, leafy greens, seeds, nuts, whole grains and other colorful plant sources.”
Quorn Foods Inc. knows how important it is for vegetarians to get the proper nutrients in their healthy food diets. “It requires more planning and attention to get all the needed nutrients in a vegetarian diet,” says Quorn Foods representative David Wilson. “Quorn Foods offer great tasting vegetarian food options, and meat alternatives that provide you with the proper nutrients.”
Quorn Foods launched nationally in the US in 2002. Unlike other vegetarian food companies, Quorn foods use mycoprotein: a naturally occurring, healthy form of protein 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, food for your barbecue, breaded meat substitutes, snacks and components to make your own meals from scratch. The wonderful taste of Quorn meatless meals provides the taste of the foods you love without sacrificing nutrition.
