A day of eating without meat can be tasty and nutritious – the key is to include a lot of wholesome, nutrient-rich ingredients that give you enough protein, slow carbs, and healthy fats, and plenty of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. Let’s look at each food and see what it brings to the table.
Breakfast – Oatmeal with Berries
This recipe serves two and it is a great choice when a hard day is ahead of you. Each portion provides you with a lot of energy and is very nutritious too – it contains 88 g of carbs, 12 g of fibre, 21 g of healthy fats, and 18 g of protein.
Lunch – Creamy Vegetable Risotto
This recipe is full of protein because of tempeh and the popular rice and peas combo. It also offers plenty of complex carbs from rice and healthy fats from almond milk and olive oil. You can be sure to get a lot of fibre, vitamins, and antioxidants because of all the veggies and spices. This would be a great choice for a post-workout recovery meal.
Snack – Fruit and Veggie Puree with Chia Seeds
This recipe is full of juicy, fresh produce so it’s great for hydration on a sunny day or as a healthy pick-me-up when you’re running low on energy. You can swap out any of the fruits or vegetables, but don’t forget to adjust the amount of added ice to keep the right thickness.
Dinner – Egg and Banana Pancakes
These pancakes are really easy to make, nutritious, and so delicious! The eggs provide a high-quality protein and healthy fats, bananas and blueberries are great sources of carbs, fibre, and vitamins, and matcha tea powder and cinnamon will add potent anti-oxidants on top of that.
