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. Fortunately, 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 many ways, plant-based meals are in fact easier. The recipes listed below couldn’t be simpler, and will appeal to both novices and veterans of plant-based eating alike.

To learn more about why vegan diets seem to be gaining popularity, and the health science behind it, you can read this article we published about it last year.
