Eat more vegetables this Spring with Meatless Monday Meals! Need some inspiration? IHG Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Nicole Moretta, shares some tasty meat-free recipes that may soon become new family favorites.
During the Lenten season some of us may have refrained from eating meat on Fridays, and may be encouraged to continue eating meat-free one meal a week. Just because we are eliminating meat doesn’t mean we have sacrifice protein...or taste. Be open to trying some new flavor profiles and don’t let yourself get intimidated by new recipes. This is a great time to explore herbs and spices as well as various cooking styles.
Protein is an essential part of any balanced meal but it doesn’t have to come from a meat source. Yes, you heard me, protein is also found in some plant foods, not just meat. Don’t get me wrong, cheese pizza and spaghetti are delicious, but we don’t have to eat those things every time we eat meat-free.
Challenge yourself and try something new!
