To stretch your meat further, try these options:
- Buy one piece of meat, and cut it into small pieces for use in casserole, stir fries or other dishes
- Have smaller portions of meat, and make sure to fill your plate up with healthy veggies and whole grains such as whole grain pastas or brown rice
- Ground meats such as chicken or beef are excellent in soups, stews, casseroles and other main dishes.
- Add substance to a smaller amount of ground meat by adding cooked lentils. They're really tasty, and when added to beef they just seem 'meaty'!
