Looking at eating healthier in 2019 especially after the festive binge which starts from pre-Christmas to post-CNY? You can rejoice now as this does not necessarily mean an overhaul of your meal plans.
Marks & Spencer Food has introduced a new plant-based range to meet the demands of the health-conscious.
Launched earlier this year in the United Kingdom and now in Singapore, Plant Kitchen is a brand-new collection of over 20 delicious meat and dairy-free plant-based fresh meals, salads, snacks and ingredients. It is creative in the use the ingredients and flavours.
The range includes everything from ‘dirty vegan’ comfort food such as Cauliflower Popcorn with Buffalo dip and, to healthy meals like Mushroom Stroganoff with 2 of your 5 a day and packed with nutritious ingredients.
The 5 A Day campaign is based on advice from the World Health Organization (WHO), which recommends eating a minimum of 400g of fruits and vegetables a day to lower the risk of serious health problems, such as heart disease and stroke.
Research demonstrates how eating plants can boost our health by raising antioxidant levels, lowering weight and cholesterol, and reducing the risk of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, heart disease, certain cancers and dementia.
It’s also breaking boundaries with high street firsts such as vegan Potato Salad, as well as the first vegan-friendly Sourdough Pizza, exclusive to Marks & Spencer, using a ‘vegan house sauce’ and available in two tempting flavours; Margherita and BBQ Pulled Jackfruit.
The latest plant-based ingredients have been cleverly used to maximise flavour and textures, for example ‘Toban Jhan’ a fermented chilli paste is used in the Thai Green Curry to emulate the complex, funky flavours found in Thai curries.
Plant Kitchen is also terrific value with smaller bites starting from $6.90 and
meals starting from $11.90 so you don’t have to fork out for the ultimate meat-free feast.
