Here at Vegetarian Breakfast Recipes we’ve noticed that “Flexitarian” is becoming a very common term these days. More and more people are opting to eat less meat for a variety of reasons.
Some of us have ethical concerns with farming practices. We worry about the processes by which the animals end up on our plates. There is also a growing awareness of the enormous cost our planet must pay in the production of animals for food.
Health is another driving factor, less saturated fat, more heart healthy oils, fruits and veg. Awareness of where our food comes from and the impact it has on our health and enviroment are all great reasons to strike a better balance.
Trying meatless, Mammal-less Mondays is a great way to test out a meal that derives protein from another source. Nothing radical! No grazing, no scavenging for fruits and berries, just think of something nutritious and meatless and start your week out on a healthy, planet friendly note.
Try not to think of it as deprivation but rather, a whole new chapter in culinary experiences. Explore new foods and flavours. It comes with a lot of benefits. We’ve talked about health and environment but you may even drop a few pounds and save some money if you do it right.
Keep it simple. To quote well known author, and NY Times writer, Michael Pollen, “Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.”
