We all know that the key to sporting success lies in our nutrition (and training hard!) and having a healthy, balanced diet with lots of lean protein is essential. So when the guys at Musclefood.com told us all about their Veal range, we knew we had to check it out.

According to MuscleFood, their British Isles Rosé Veal is assured and reared in spacious conditions with natural light, straw bedding, good ventilation and on a milk & cereal based diet.

It’s also certified, 100% British and contains absolutely no added water or salt, so you’re guaranteed to receive just 100% pure meat with every order.

Formalities aside though, the health benefits of this lean meat are second to none.

It’s extra low in fat with only 3.4g per serving and high in protein (19.4g per 100g). It’s also extremely delicious thanks to its mild flavour profile and mouth-watering tenderness – we couldn’t get enough of it here!

We first cooked up a batch of Spaghetti Bolognese with their British Isles Rosé Veal Mince and Dr. Zak’s Protein Pasta (also available from Musclefood.com) for a nutritious dinner, which added up to:

540 calories (144 from the Veal)
69.4g Protein (19.4 from the Veal)
31g Carbohydrate (0 from the Veal)
14.3g Fat (6.8 from the Veal)

We couldn’t believe that by using Veal Mince we slashed the fat content of this dish by 50% compared to when you make it with Steak Mince.

We’re so glad we gave this delicious meat a try because now we know sticking to a high protein, low fat, low carb diet isn’t so tough when you’ve got a fantastic food like this to add variety.

It’s firmly on our list of diet staples.

From British Isles Rosé Veal Stir-Fry (26g protein) to tender Veal Saltimbocca made with MuscleFood’s Escalopes (41g protein) and even curbing our steak cravings with their Veal T-Bone Steak (21.3g protein) – the cooking opportunities are endless!

We could even have a lean protein packed “cheat meal” by rustling up some British Isles Rosé Veal Meatballs in a tangy Bloody Mary Sauce.

Plus, Musclefood.com is offering all Fighters Only readers a free pack of 360g Veal Meatballs with their order. Just enter the code ‘FOVEAL’ at the checkout or head to www.musclefood.com/foveal
