Last week, I discussed six benefits of why you should go on a plant-based diet (or at least consider it). I’ve only been implementing plant-based meals into my diet for a couple of months, so I’m still transitioning from meat-based meals over to this diet, which is a lifestyle change.
If you’re thinking you want to try it, but you want to eat plant-based meals that don’t suck and have flavor, and you don’t know where to start, then lucky for you, I have listed 5 of my favorite plant-based meals (click links for recipes):
Totally healthy and totally vegan. Score! The creaminess and sweetness of the coconut oil and the kick from the ginger and garlic make this meal a certain crowd-pleaser. I never thought lentils and rice sounded so good until I had this. Thank you EndlessMeal.com!
Yum, yum, and even more yum. How can you go wrong with a combination of guacamole and shiitake mushrooms? Well, you can’t with this recipe by CocoonCooks.com. Throw in your own cheese substitute, and you have yourself a winner.
A little bit of spice and everything nice…these are the ingredients to make the perfect vegan gyro. With cucumbers, hummus, onions and more all wrapped up in pita flatbread (or naan bread), you’ll have a mouthgasm.
Zucchini never ceases to amaze me with its flexibility. I mean meatballs? Who thought that was possible? MakingThymeForHealth.com definitely whipped up something amazing with this one. The texture and flavor of these zucchini meatballs make you not want to go back to regular meatballs knowing how good they taste and how much healthier they are for you.
I made these on the fly one time, and I loved how flexible this recipe is as well. You can put it any vegetables, salsas, and spices that fit your desires. Plus, um, portobellos are a tasty filler as well. Can you tell I love avocados by now too?
And with these 5 recipes to start, you now have a recipe to plant-based meals success! For the good of your mind, body, and soul, take care to incorporate more foods that grow straight from the Earth. Get slicin’ and dicin’ because my friends, you’ll want to eat these again and again.
