If you live in a household that relies on prepping healthy meals ahead of time, you already know that they should also be rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grains.
And did you know that plant-based diets offer lower levels of saturated fat and more fiber? They help to reduce the risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.
By purchasing less meat, your grocery bill will go down as meat is often the most expensive item to buy. Just see how much lower your bill is at the end of the month after just substituting 1 or 2 meals a week!
You might be wondering where the protein is going to come from in a meatless meal. Well, there are plenty of protein sources to choose from such as peas, lentils, beans, nuts, seeds, soy and whole grains.
Many meatless meals don’t require a lot of time as you are not cooking meat in the oven or on the stove. In fact, you can put together a quick and easy dinner in 10 minutes or less!
You might want to start with a “Meatless Monday”. If you’re not certain how to do this, it’s easy. Simply swap a plant-based protein for your usual meat in a recipe. For example, if you are making pasta with vegetables, simply swap your meat with a plant-based protein such as tofu or beans! There’s no extra bother and you’ll have a delicious meatless meal in no time!
And it’s also good knowing that your choice is a humane one that is beneficial for the planet and animals! Enjoy!
