You may not realise it, but vegetarian menu planning can be easier than you think! National Vegetarian Week, 11th to 17th May this year, is all about eating delicious and exciting food, but it’s easy to plan healthy and tasty vegetarian meals all year round.
I’m no vegetarian, but even meat eaters like me can celebrate National Vegetarian Week by choosing to eat more meat free meals. Regular readers will know that I’m passionate about reducing the amount of meat my family eats. It benefits our health, our environment and our budget.
I’ve done some vegetarian menu planning and put together three days worth of vegetarian menus complete with recipes. If you are a vegetarian I hope you will find it a great resource – and if you aren’t I hope it will encourage you to dip your toe into the vegetarian lifestyle by cutting out meat one or more days this week.
Every time you choose to eat a meat free meal, you are benefitting your health and the health of the planet. So even if it is just one meat free day per week – or a few meat free meals here and there – everything you do helps.
Making the Menu Plan Work For You
Feel free to switch things round within this menu plan, or even just cherry pick the recipes and meals that appeal to you most. This is just a guide, designed to show you how easy vegetarian meal planning can be and how easy it can be to eat more plant based meals.
