Going plant-based has often been cited as one of the best things one can do to take care of one’s health. Whether you choose to eat a Mediterranean, flexitarian, pescatarian, vegetarian or vegan diet – reducing the amount of meat in your diet and eating more fruits and veggies is going to be good for your body:
- It’s good for your heart.
- Decreases your risk of Type 2 Diabetes.
- Helps with weight maintenance.
- Reduced risk of cancer.
- Good for your gut.

3. Pap ‘n wors
If you’re craving that juicy Boerie bite of a South African staple – look no further! As seen on Ultimate Braai Master, this Boerie holds its own under the most discerning critiques. Cook it exactly how you’d cook a meat-based Boerie and serve it with polenta or pap and generous spoons of that hearty salsa. More is more.
4. Family Burger Night
What could be more fun than a build your own burger night round the kitchen table?!
Flip some Big Fry Burger patties in the pan or on the braai for only 10min and serve up a whopping 20g of protein per patty with ZERO cholesterol! Ever notice how a meat-based patty shrinks during cooking? Not our patties – what you see is what you get – a generous, juicy, pure plant-powered protein just waiting for you to sink your teeth in! Slapped in between some fluffy buns with all the toppings and a side of chips – that’s a family winning dinner that’s sure to impress!
Here’s what some of our Fry’s fans have to say about their plant-based journey:
“Much more better on the gut. Less inflammation in the body. Both my boys will choose Fry’s burger and sausages over any meat burgers and sausages.”
“ We are on Fry’s meat for 3 years now and my husband’s kidney function were 22% at the time that we started. It is on 63% now and the Dr’s can’t believe he is recovering. We do not eat any animal protein since we started on Fry’s meatless meat. “
“I feel good, more healthier, energetic and ready for my day ahead”
“There’s so many ways that I use my Fry’s plant products, it’s the way my meals are prepared that my family and I don’t feel like we missing out meat, it’s about the flavour profile and cutting out on meat and incorporating plant based goodness makes us feel lighter indeed 🌿”
