Ok. Now I’m convinced I have heard it all.

Chicken free chicken.

What a time to be alive.

This isn’t a joke, but apparently Coles are going to be selling this new vegetarian product.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for people eating plant based foods.

I don’t mind a bit of it as an alternative every now and then.

But why don’t we call a spade a spade.

If you don’t want to eat meat for whatever reason, that’s cool.

I respect their opinion.

Like hopefully they do mine, for choosing to eat meat.

But why do people insist on eating things that resemble meat?

This chicken free chicken (yes, that’s it’s name) is made up of pea protein and pumpkin.

Why can’t they just call it, oh I don’t know, pea and pumpkin patties or something like that?

Pea protein is pretty good as a protein powder so I’m assuming this thing might even taste half decent.

Just please, for the love of God, don’t call it chicken.

To be honest I don’t really care what they do, I just find it amusing that this is actually a thing. 

But seriously, on the topic of meat free meals, I think it’s a really good option to do each week.

You don’t want every meal as a meat option.

There’s plenty of paths you can do down.

Soups with beans added – especially in winter are always a winner.

You’ve got stir fries that once again can be made up on beans that you can literally whip up in 5 mins.

And of course you have fritatas and all that stuff – providing you’re not a vegan.

There’s plenty of good meat free meal options that are going to hit the spot and that don’t take that long to prepare.

Cheers,
Daniel

PS – don’t forget to let me know your thoughts on what I mentioned yesterday, about doing the monthly workout thing via a follow along at home workout video available via an app. So all you have to do is push play and follow along.

If there’s enough interest, I’ll add it to the DPM training options moving forward
