The Future Is Flexitarian: The Biggest Lifestyle Trend To Hit Australia

07.09.17 Eat, Grow Blog SumoSalad

Australia, the time has come to do away with extremes and for you to be introduced to the Flexitarian movement.

The battle for balance in our diets is more real than ever – in our hearts most of us want to go greener but our appetites crave meat. Now you have both AND discover new levels of great health with the biggest lifestyle trend to hit the nation!

Flexitarian is the combination of two words, flexible + vegetarian. It’s a new way to eat that minimises meat consumption without excluding it all together. By adding new foods to your diet as opposed to excluding any, you’ll discover a range of health benefits that make you feel amazing from the inside out.

We define a flexitarian as someone who shies away from extremes in favour of health, happiness and moderation. Flexitarian means you never have to choose one thing over another forever – you just go with what feels good for today, whether that’s meat, chicken, fish, salad or ice-cream!

SumoSalad is redefining what healthy means because we all have different lives and different tastes, so why should we all stick to ‘one’ way of eating? Whether you want meat one day and veggies the next – check out our Spring dishes that will tantalise your taste buds and fuel you for all your adventures ahead…

To get started, try these easy steps to embrace the flexitarian movement in your daily diet:

Load Up On The Greens:
For salads, mix in tons of other veggies like carrots, beets, corn, broccoli, and onions, along with a plant-based protein.

Meat-free Mondays:
Try out at least one new vegetarian recipe each week to build up your meat-free cooking repertoire!

Switch & Swap
Substitute chicken, beef and pork for beans or lentils in a salad or rice bowl. They’re just as filling and super light on the wallet.

Burger Babes
Try a veggie burger instead of meat and enjoy it with all the classic toppings such as ketchup, mustard and pickles.

Beans Are Boss
Add white or red beans into your favourite pasta dishes for extra protein and fibre.

Meat: Lean & Mean
When including meat in your meals, ensure it’s a free-range and lean cut with minimal fats. Our free-range chicken, pasture-fed beef and lamb and antioxidant-rich salmon at Sumo are great examples of healthy and delicious meat options.

Grains On The Brain
Steamed grains like quinoa are super-versatile and can take on almost any flavour—from sweet to savoury. Packed with protein and super delicious, grains are a fantastic base for any meal.

So get on board with this life-changing movement and head into Sumo today to experience our brand new, flexitarian creations including our Chicken Kaleslaw, Falafel & Hummus and Grains & Greens dishes…
