There are many benefits to eating vegetarian, from your health to the planet, and even committing to a meatless meal or two a week can be a great way to add some variety to your diet and cut back on the meat consumption. If you’re a vegetarian or are considering the transition, check out our top tips for vegetarian success.
- Meal prep – it’s always helpful to have meals planned in advance, but especially so when you’re adapting to a new diet. Meal planning also reduces waste and your grocery bill. Fitfood’s vegetarian meals are an excellent way to get the benefits of meal planning without actually having to, you know, plan.
- Rework old favourites – The rise in popularity of vegetarian and vegan diets means it’s easier than ever to simply reinvent a vegie version of your favourite meals, so you don’t need to mourn the loss of your go-to meat-based comfort foods just yet. Enter Fitfood vegetarian meals like Vege Taco Bowl, Indian Butter Paneer and Pumpkin Risotto. Colour us excited!
- Eat the rainbow – Speaking of colours, remember to include a good variety of colour on your plate. It’s an easy way to ensure you’re getting the maximum amount of vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants in your diet. Sorry – Skittles don’t count.
- Keep your diet balanced – Cutting out meat doesn’t mean you can throw the entire food pyramid out the window. It’s just as important to maintain a healthy balance in a vegetarian diet, which means making sure you’re getting enough whole grains, veggies, plant protein and good fats. Fitfood’s vegetarian meals are carefully planned to meet all your nutritional needs, so you don’t even need to think about it – just eat and enjoy!
Avoid – And finally, our number one thing to avoid on a vegetarian diet. Don’t let your food be boring! No matter what you’re eating, it will be more enjoyable with a bit of variety, which is why Fitfood’s extensive vegetarian range includes the full scope of foods for every mood – from the fresh and summery to warming comfort meals. Save time, eat healthy and keep your vegetarian meals fun with Fitfood.
