There are many people making the change to be a vegetarian. My sister was a vegetarian for many years with the reasoning being that if it ever had a face, she wouldn’t eat it. There are also sensible, health related reasons to consider adding at least some meat-alternative products into your diet.
Why You Should Consider Meat-Alternative Products
There are many studies being conducted that point to meat as a threat to many health issues.
- In fact, the World Health Organization concludes that dietary factors account for at least 30% of all cancers in Western countries. That’s HUGE! Vegetarians are about 40% less likely to develop cancer than meat eaters according to studies in England and Germany.
- If you aren’t worried about cancer, consider that to reduce coronary heart disease, you should reduce the amount of saturated fat you consume. Meat contains significant saturated fat.
- The amount of meat you consume could also contribute you to the risk of type 2 diabetes.
- Finding it hard to shed those extra pounds? You meat consumption can be the reason for weight gain in men and women

We were able to review the VegeUSA Vegan Black Pepper Steaks. It was easy to prepare, I just cooked it on LOW heat for 8 minutes to warm it up. You can also microwave it or warm it in the oven.
I prepared the VegeUSA Vegan Black Pepper Steaks for on my husband and father-in-law during a recent home remodeling day. I like to feed them hearty meals when they are working hard in the house. I prepared the Vegan Black Pepper Steaks with rice, topped with fresh green onions and a side of fresh oranges.
The guys had no idea it wasn’t “real meat”! I tried some too, the texture was consistent with real steak and the flavor taste just like black pepper steaks. It’s a little spicy for me, as would any black pepper product but the guys enjoyed it! I think getting men to enjoy a hearty meat-alternative steak is a big success!
