Looking for easy vegetarian recipes the whole family will enjoy? You’ve come to the right place! Whether you are experimenting with a vegetarian lifestyle or simply want to eat less meat, there are delicious ideas here for everyone.
I was vegetarian for a few years in my teens and although I now eat meat and fish, I consider myself an Occasional Vegetarian. I love trying and creating delicious new recipes to help my family eat less meat.
Why Eat Less Meat?
Too much red and processed meat can definitely be a detriment to your health, and some people makes it find them feel sluggish. Eating less meat may even help prevent some diseases.
According to Walter Willett, a professor of epidemiology and nutrition at Harvard T H Chan School of Public Health, the production of animal-based foods, particularly beef, is responsible for about half the food system’s greenhouse gas emissions.
Plant-based protein sources including legumes and vegetables are generally a lot cheaper than meat. Cooking plant based meals a couple of days a week can seriously reduce the cost of your weekly shop.
