The weekend is upon us, and there's nothing I love more than to plan some funky meals to enjoy with my family and friends.
Recently, I watched a science documentary, featuring several studies that showed that a diet heavily based on red meat is not really the best thing for us. Ever since, we've been making a conscious effort to cook more and more meatless dishes at home. But I have to say, our repertoire wasn't great. I mean, sometimes you've gotta go beyond chicken and fish to keep your taste buds guessing, right?!
15+ Super Delicious Meatless Recipes to Try
So I was totally giddy (and drooling) over some recipes found on Foodie.com. Not only they are healthier versions of classic favorites, but it's also food that you’d actually share with your friends! A major plus for this party gal ;)
These recipes are truly delicious! For instance, the Spicy Black Bean Burger from MorningStar Farms® is one of my faves!! Just because you start with a veggie burger doesn't necessarily mean you’re making a veggie burger...You can make salads, wraps, stews and even pizzas - I personally love making spaghetti bolognese or a nice frittata for Sunday brunch!
The great thing is that you are enjoying a healthier, fresh take on your classic recipes and family favorites, without compromising on taste! And that, my friends; is what I call "eating smart"! ;)
