High protein, low fat pies
Having enjoyed success with a range of high protein pizzas lauched last year, online fitness and bodybuilding centric food retailer MuscleFood have developed a new range of healthier meat pies.
Available in three varieties including Steak and Gravy, Pulled BBQ Beef and Chicken Balti they offer more protein but less calories, fat and carbs then an average store bought pie.
The Chicken Balti pie for example contains 30% more protein, 45% fewer calories, 90% less saturated fat and 57% fewer carbs than the average store bought pie. Specifically. In terms of nutritional profile, the 220g pie offers:
· 31.7g protein
· 19.4 carbs
· 1.5g sat fats
· 284 calories
Also higher in fibre the final recipe was achieved by replacing the traditional high-calorie pastry for a gluten free option, fortified with pea protein to create the same taste and texture fans are used to. The new pies which are available from MuscleFood.com are aimed at body builders and athletes as well as the health conscious as the high protein content helps muscle gain.
