I was selected to review an interesting product and due to the fact that I was a vegetarian for seven years and still am careful with what I eat, I jumped at the chance to do the review. This product is called Quorn and it is a meat alternative.
Interestingly enough I had already heard of Quorn from my friends who live in the United Kingdom, but back when I was buying vegetarian foods frequently this product was not available. Currently it is only carried in one store in our town, but I do hope that more stores will begin to carry it soon, and I plan to request it at the store we usually shop at. They are very good at stocking items we request.
Quorn offers all types of products, from alternative hamburger, to alternative chicken. I selected the Naked Chick'N Cutlets, and the Meatless and Soy Free Meatballs. I actually had three coupons for free Quorn products but opted to give one to my son's girlfriend who showed interest in the product.
Before I show you the amazing photos of our dinner, and tell you my opinion on Quorn, lets look at a word from the company:
Quorn Foods is the premier producer of meat alternative products worldwide. Based in the UK, our products have been sold in the US for about 12 years now. Quorn's products are made from a naturally occuring protein in the fungi family.
The protein is harvested in a fermentation process similar to brewing beer. Because our products are soy-free, they're naturally non-GMO and have a superior taste and texture to other meat alternatives. Compared to meat, Quorn has about half the calories and fat yet is very high in fiber and protein.
All products are frozen make a wonderfully easy, healthy substitution in all your favorite recipes. We're certain you'll love Quorn!

|To the food-lover it’s a simple way to make all your favorite meals, healthier.|
|To the weight-watcher it’s a way of dramatically reducing fat and calorie intake without trying to survive on soup and salad.|
|To the healthy eater it’s a cholesterol-free source of protein, fiber and essential amino acids.|
|To the vegetarian it’s the nutritional benefits of meat – without hurting a hair of any animal’s head.|
|To the environmentalist it’s an alternative to turning the world’s rain forests into grazing land and an alternative to depleting the dwindling fish-stocks of the ocean.|
Disclosure: I was provided product free for review but I did truly enjoy my experience.
