Shape up with Slim & Proper

Shape up with Slim & Proper

Posted in Blog | 0 comments

Want to shape up but don’t like the idea of nibbling on rabbit food? No, me neither. Having launched our Slim & Proper Lower Fat Sausages just two months ago in January, we have been overwhelmed by their popularity both across the county and further afield. Now available as a sausage meat, perfect for making your own meaty treats, our famous bangers have become a firm favourite with sausage-loving slimmers. Because they contain high levels of protein and less than 4% fat, Slim & Proper sausages are also great for gym-lovers and fitness fanatics. Packed full of delicious traditional flavours, these sausages do not compromise on quality or taste. We caught up with fitness guru Shaun Windo from Lifestyle Solutions Fitness Studio in Pool to find out more about how our skinny sausages can fit in with a healthier regime. “As I’m sure you guys are aware, when trying to lose weight, or as part of a weight maintenance programme, a lower fat intake is essential.  Your lower fat sausages are great at providing a tasty alternative to normal higher fat sausages, which means that they can be consumed more regularly. It’s important that people wishing to adopt a healthier lifestyle and in particular those looking to lose weight don’t feel deprived of the occasional treat, so offering them a product which enables them to treat themselves is a great way of staying on track. “In actual fact, a higher protein intake and a lower fat intake are essential for those looking to drop a few pounds whilst providing their body with enough protein to feed working muscles. I must stress though that everything needs to happen in balance, which is why weight loss programmes like Slimming World and Weight Watchers, or coming to a Personal Trainer like myself, are helpful because it’s about adopting new lifestyle changes through great nutrition and exercise not just going on a crazed fad diet that does more damage than good.” With over 10 years experience in the industry, Shaun is a true fitness professional that helps his clients to reach their health and fitness goals by looking at nutrition, exercise and lifestyle. If you’re would like to find out more about Shaun and Lifestyle Solutions Fitness Studio please visit their website. You can purchase Slim & Proper Lower Fat Sausages or Sausage Meat directly from the Kernow Sausage Company online shop. Don’t forget it’s free shipping on orders over £25 so why not stock up and enjoy guilt-free delicious Cornish produce every time!

Happy St Piran’s Day

Happy St Piran’s Day

Posted in Blog | 0 comments

According to legend, St Piran was born in Ireland in the 6th century where he was famous for performing astonishing deeds. Afraid of his powers, a group of kings put a millstone around his neck and threw him into the sea. Having miraculously landed safely on Perranporth beach, he built a chapel in the sand dunes. This brought flocks of Cornish people to the sandy shore, eager to listen to his teachings. It’s said that St Piran discovered tin, by accident, when a black hearthstone on his fire leaked a white liquid. The Flag of St Piran represents white tin flowing from the black rock, or good overcoming evil. Today, people across Cornwall and further afield come together to celebrate St Piran’s Day on 5th March. There are always plenty of events you can get involved with from pasty throwing at Newquay Zoo to the beer festival in Falmouth. Enjoy a pasty, sip a cider and give a cheers for our beautiful Kernow!

The New Lower Fat Sausage

The New Lower Fat Sausage

Posted in Blog | 0 comments

This week we are pleased to reveal our Slim & Proper Lower Fat Sausage, packed with protein and with less than 4% fat. Just in time for January, our team here at the Kernow Sausage Company have developed this new reduced fat sausage to offer sausage fans a healthy alternative that doesn’t compromise on taste. At this time of year we can all feel the pressure to cut down on those indulgent treats and get in shape. Here at Kernow Sausage HQ we recognise that making smart food choices can help us all to feel happier and healthier. After sampling a wide range of healthy eating sausages we were disappointed by the bland and frankly feeble products on offer. As a bunch of dedicated sausage lovers we were keen to take on the challenge and set about developing a lower fat sausage that doesn’t compromise on quality or taste. Made with only the best Cornish pork, natural casings and traditional seasoning, the new Slim & Proper Lower Fat Sausage can certainly hold its own and contains up to 65% less fat than the traditional banger. As our managing director Gavin explained, “I think most people would agree that the majority of healthy eating sausages you can buy in the shops are quite uninspiring. We wanted to challenge the stereotype and craft a leaner product that packs plenty of meaty flavour.” Read a review of Slim & Proper Lower Fat Sausages by Sugar Pink Food. To see how our reduced fat sausage can fit into your slimming plan, enter the nutritional information below into your calculator noting that each individual sausage is 76g. lower fat sausage Available exclusively at The Kernow Sausage Company online shop, our Slim & Proper Lower Fat Sausage is perfect for those looking to shape up, improve their diet and cut down on fatty foods.
