I'm a novice at the whole healthy eating thing, well i eat vegtables, so I need some help with protein. Does quorn contain as much protein as meat?

Also, as I'm a vegetarian can I have more dairy ect?

Any veggy's who are into fitness please give me your advice

Quorn 15g per 100g
Chicken breast 24 per 100g
Beef 22.5 per 100g
Lamb 20.5 per 100g
Pork 21.8 per 100g

So its not bad, better than mince at least!

not yummy at all. I hate the stuff. If I was a veggie I'd much prefer beans, peas, nuts, cheese, cream, milk, yoghurt and eggs for protein.

you can eat it if you are vegetarian but not vegan as it contains egg white.

Not quite as much protein as meat, but not far off and with far, far less fat. On the other hand of course, it is more expensive.

Also remember you can add to the protein with beans and eggs and dairy etc.

He's laughing because that's the point of Quorn, it's a meat substitute!

How is it better than mince? The only mince it's better than is quorn mince.

EDIT: The quorn I'm looking at only has 14g, so it's not even as good as quorn mince.

quorn is okay. i prefer the cheaper supermarket-brand alternatives...tesco quorn-style burgers are 18g protein/5g fat/6g carb per 100g, and cheaper than beef burgers or similar.

or, cheaper still, and if you can be bothered, make your own veggie burgers - just throw a few tins of pre-cooked/soaked beans or lentils into a blender with some peppers, onions, tomato paste, an egg, bit of flour, spices or whatever you want. use as little or as much oil as you need, i made some yesterday using none at all. and they don't taste too bad, though most meat eaters would disagree...

I quite like making quorn burgers out of the mince although you have to put a ton of seasoning in them.

aha, yep. i don't even really want to know how much salt ends up in there, but i guess it's better than all the crap that goes in ready meals...
