If you’re considering switching to a plant-based diet, you might be concerned about a few common barriers: I don’t know what to eat, I don’t know how to make it taste good, or I don’t have time. We’ve got good news – we can break it down and take out all the guesswork. All you have to do is keep reading.
Below, you’ll find two weeks (or more!) of healthy, delicious, plant-based recipes. No more trial and error or recipe research, just easy, tasty, plant-based meals. Let’s get started.
3 MAIN MEALS
Listed below are options for three meals a day, providing two to three possible alternatives for each meal. This will help ensure you have ownership over the plan, options for different seasons, and a variety of foods that are appealing to you.
There are a few ways to take the next step. One option is to go through and pick out which meals you want over the week, create a shopping list, and get everything you need to have on hand. If that feels overwhelming, your other option is to just take it one day (or even one meal) at a time. Also, you certainly don’t have to make an entirely new meal three times a day. Leftovers are great time-savers; you can even make bigger batches of the snack options, so you have them for a few days in a row. The point of the plan is to give you options, fill you up, and make your life a little easier. That’s why we’ve included options for nutritious version of comforting classics, mason jar meals for on-the-go, even a plant-based version of Taco Tuesday. Remember that you should always check with your health care practitioner for specific suggestions regarding your health and how to best plan for your needs.
