Endless Meat-Free Options
Following a vegetarian diet doesn't mean you have to eat the same foods over and over. Your diet can include just as many tasty varieties as one that includes meat.
Don't hesitate to get creative in the kitchen. Try some of these ideas and add your own creative twist to them:
- Build your meal around protein foods such as beans and peas, tofu or tempeh, or eggs if you eat them.
- Experiment with meat replacements like soy hot dogs, veggie burgers or marinated tofu.
- Make dishes which typically contain meat like lasagna or chilli with plant-based proteins, making these meals lower in saturated fat and cholesterol free.
- Use snacks to fill food gaps in your day. Healthy snacks include dried fruits, popcorn, low-fat yogurt, hummus, nut butters or trail mix.
