Beef/Pork/Lamb

Healthy Beef, Pork or Lamb Recipes

Whether you’re in the mood for beef stew, a lean pork loin, or a hearty lamb chop, we’ve got you covered. Our recipes are created with cancer patients in mind, and include a variety of healthy ingredients, some of which can help reduce your risk of developing cancer.

In the right quantities, red meat is a great addition to your meals. Packed full of protein, vitamins and minerals, it can help form a balanced diet. Too much red meat and processed meats, however, can increase the risk of cancer.

This doesn’t mean you should take beef out of your meals! Whether you opt for a comforting beef stew or a burger on a Friday night, make sure you eat no more than 18oz of red meat per week for a lower cancer risk.

Lean pork is a powerhouse of essential vitamins and minerals. Full of protein, zinc and iron, there’s more to pork than you may think. The leaner the cut, the more concentrated the health benefits become, so we suggest avoiding fattier cuts of pork to reduce your consumption of saturated fats and sodium.

Similar to beef and lean pork, lamb is another meat packed with nutrition. In fact, regular consumption of lamb can assist with muscle growth and maintenance, reduce tiredness, and boost the immune system.

Lamb is a flavoursome meat and goes well with other herbs and spices. Eaten across the world, it compliments various sides and drinks making it a great choice for any meal.

It can be difficult to decide what your next meal is sometimes.

To make things easier, we first recommend picking a recipe which fits well with your current diet. You can see the full list of nutritional information on the individual recipe pages.

Most of our recipes contain many of these healthy ingredients which have been linked to cancer prevention, and are an essential part of a balanced diet.

You can still eat a filling, nutritious meal, with all of the essential ingredients you need, while keeping your calories low!

It’s worth seeking out Vitamins A, C and D, and minerals such as zinc and calcium, as these give your body the energy it needs to grow and repair.

Several studies have concluded that higher levels of sodium can increase the risk of developing some cancers. For this reason, our recipes tend to have lower levels of sodium.

All of our recipes using beef, pork or lamb have been specially crafted to support cancer prevention and survival, in line with the AICR cancer prevention recommendations.

These guidelines include aspects such as limiting the amount of fats, starches and sugars, while being mindful of your current diet. If you find a recipe you’d like to try, but you’re concerned it may be a bit too different from your current diet, or you’re not sure about the ingredients which are used, we recommend consulting a health professional.

In addition to our beef, pork and lamb recipes, we have a large collection of recipes for a range of other tastes, from vegetarian mains to fuelling healthy breakfasts.
