Have a Cruelty-Free Thanksgiving Dinner
NEW YORK(RushPRnews)11/27/08-Chances are that there will be at least one vegetarian at most holiday feasts this year, and thanks to Whole Foods and Garden Protein, vegetarian and health-conscious family members and guests will be dining in style.That’s because Garden Protein’s new nutrition-packed Veggie Turkey Breast With Wild Rice and Cranberry Stuffing is unlike any faux-turkey products currently on the marketâ€”offering all the flavor and texture of the “real” thing but with none of the cholesterol and saturated fat found in meat products.
Garden Protein’s Veggie Turkey Breastâ€”which is sure to get rave reviews from vegetarians and nonvegetarians alikeâ€”is available at Whole Foods Market’s deli counter along with vegan versions of all the traditional side dishes.
The new Veggie Turkey Breast is bursting with healthful ingredients, including several vital minerals and five essential B vitamins, and is made with pure canola oil, so it contains no trans fat. Because it’s meatless, it’s better for you. According to the American Dietetic Association, “[A]ppropriately planned vegetarian diets are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases,” including heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and several types of cancer.
“We’ve made our new Veggie Turkey Breast so appealing that you shouldn’t be surprised if nonvegetarians at your holiday table ask if they can try some too,” says Richard Vann, Garden Protein International’s vice president of business development. “It looks and tastes just like traditional holiday fare, and it’s better for you!”
The Veggie Turkey Breast is available at select Whole Foods Markets through January. Call or visit your local Whole Foods Market for availability. If it is unavailable, politely ask store officials to carry it.
