Well, eating too much saturated fat is associated with raised levels of LDL ‘bad’ cholesterol and this is linked to an increased risk of heart disease and stroke. Although of course, we all need some fat in our diet and some fats are good for us such as the healthy unsaturated fats you may find in avocados or olive oil for example. While saturated fats found in foods such as meat, hard cheeses and coconut oil are recommended to be reduced, according to official UK dietary guidelines.
Reducing the amount of saturated fat we eat is a very simple way to lower our cholesterol levels and support our heart health, so next time, consider our tasty rogan josh recipe swap to help you on your way to a heart-healthy diet.
Not only that, swapping one portion of Beef Rogan Josh to Tofu Rogan Josh is better for your carbon footprint too. A simple change like this would save approximately 2.3 kgCO2e, assuming that the recipe is the same for the meat version apart from supplementing with tofu.
