Quorn Foods applauds the decision by select Los Angeles politicians to participate in US Vegetarian Week.

On April 23, 2013 Quorn Foods commends L.A. politicians, California State Senator Ted Lieu and Assembly member Das Williams, for their pledge to participate in US Vegetarian Week from April 22nd through April 28th.

According to an article by LAist, Lieu and Williams “have pledged to go meatless for at least seven days as a way to discover the benefits and flavor possibilities within meat-free eating,” in commemoration of US Vegetarian Week.

California State Senator Lieu has participated in this weeklong pledge for three years, with 2013 being the fourth. In the article, Lieu is quoted as saying, “Healthier living is an idea that sells itself and leads to longer lives and an improved quality of life. As a state policymaker, and father of two, I enthusiastically encourage everyone to participate in US VegWeek by treating themselves to more fresh fruits and vegetables that can lead to a longer, healthier life - and lifestyle.”

“It is encouraging to see lawmakers participate in US Vegetarian Week,” says David Wilson, a Quorn Foods representative. “These individuals have the ability to spread the news about vegetarian diets, and we applaud their efforts.”

Wilson also suggests some recipes for individuals who are taking part in US Vegetarian Week. “Quorn is a delicious soy free meat alternative that is perfect for US Vegetarian Week. It tastes great, so meat eaters will have an easy transition if they choose not to eat meat for a week. Our website contains many vegetarian recipes, including meatless burger and salad recipes.”

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.
