On some level, I think quite a lot of people would probably like to eat a plant based, vegan diet. Especially if they were made aware of the potential benefits, not just for their health, but for their performance, for the environment, and for the other species we share the planet with too.
But despite this awareness, there would inevitably still remain one big barrier blocking the path for so many people: they wouldn’t know what to eat.
They wouldn’t know how to replace the meals they’re currently having with substantial plant based alternatives. Cut out the meat, dairy, eggs and processed foods, and what are you left with? Am I just gonna eat salad and sawdust?! They get the notion that a vegan diet would be too difficult.
I’ll let you in on a little secret. It’s really not difficult. Yeah I said it. You’ve just gotta get started, experiment a bit, fail a lot, and after a while you’ll find some good solid meals that you’ll forget are vegan at all. But if you want a head start on all that, I can give you a little direction.
If you’re starting to become a little plant curious, or if you’re already plant-strong and looking for new ideas, here’s ten examples of everyday dishes that with a few small adjustments, can easily be made into healthy, delicious, plant based meals. Nothing complicated. Nothing expensive. Just quick and easy nutritious food.
