Nowadays many people are deciding to cut back on their consumption of meat and other animal products. There are a few reasons for this, including numerous health concerns, a compassionate stance on animal welfare, and negative environmental implications. If this is you, then whatever your reason is, I commend you on making this decision!

So, you have decided to or are considering cutting back on meat, eggs, fish, and dairy — what can you eat and how do you make it? Too often this is the most challenging and at times most discouraging aspect of adopting a plant-based diet; what am I supposed to eat? Well, lucky for you there are loads of things you can eat! From rice and potatoes to stuffed portobellos, the options are truly endless, and all you need to do is a quick little Google search for vegan or vegetarian recipes to make your new way of eating feel spectacular! People also often think it must be a lot more difficult to cook plant-based meals, but that is a myth! In a lot of ways plant-based meals are in fact easier. The recipes listed below couldn’t be simpler for anyone who is beginning this journey, and even for people like me, who sometimes just want a simple and delicious vegan meal.
