We have carefully considered all food items used in our recipes. By looking at calorie & nutrient values, & making the right choices, it is possible to save lots of calories & nutrients without compromising on quality & taste, without changing the amount we eat & without ditching the foods we love. It was quite an eye opener as we expected that we could make some savvy swaps of food items, but we never realised there could be so much variation within different brands of the same products. It may not matter if you use something different, but we couldn’t guarantee that it would meet our designated values. One thing I would stick to though is 5% Mince. If you buy lean mince which is 10, 12% or higher, they will all be much higher in calories and fats.
