In a study of over 37,000 Americans, those who ate the most plant protein were 29% less likely to die of coronary heart disease.  Why not start with a Meatless Monday routine?!

Recipes for Meatless Monday Meals and Beyond!

As Lent approaches, many of us prepare to say goodbye to meat on Fridays, and perhaps are inspired to extend this practice throughout the week. It's worth noting that incorporating plant-based meals into our diets is beneficial for our heart health. Not only does it provide an opportunity to explore new flavors and cooking methods, but it's also an excellent way to experiment with aromatic herbs and diverse cooking techniques. Don't fret about protein deficiency or losing delicious taste. With a little creativity, we can make meals packed with plant-based protein that are just as delectable as any meat dish. So let's break away from the mundane meaty menu and explore the vast array of plant protein sources available to us.
