Gardein is helping Canadians break-up their everyday routine in new and exciting ways. When things get dull, it’s important to switch things up and sometimes that means you need to cheat. On meat that is.

The brand is encouraging Canadians to take its cheating challenge and substitute Gardein’s delicious plant-based products for meat in their favourite recipes at least one day a week. Try Sunday brunch with plant-based Maple Breakfast Saus’age Patties, pasta night with spaghetti and Meatless Meatballs or Fishless Filets with tangy slaw.

“Getting stuck in a rut in your everyday routine can impact your happiness in your personal life and with the people you love. As an expert in the study of relationships, confidence and achieving balance, I can attest to this,” says Kimberly Moffit, Relationship Therapist and Expert. “Small, easy changes to your everyday routine and a desire to try new things (even in the kitchen) is so important to keeping daily life exciting! I love the idea of taking a break from what you’re used to and cheating, that is, when it’s on meat.”
