    Meat-Free Meal Plan

    Trying out a meat free diet for a day might sound daunting for beginners, let alone an entire week. Little do many know that in fact this journey is not only cheap and easy, it’s also very, very delicious.

    Eating less meat brings with it a whole load of health benefits, from boosting your energy levels and keeping your cholesterol levels down (if you reduce your dairy intake, that is), to reducing both your grocery bill and your consumption of chemicals often used in the production of meat and dairy.

    The following meal plan takes the hard part out of planning a week of dinners without the staple meat-based mains you might be used to. You could be surprised how filling and tasty they can be.
