Meatless Monday Recipes

The Organic Beauty Meatless MondayI get that going totally plant-based isn’t for everyone.  I myself eat seafood a couple of times a week, and have no intention of cutting it from my eating. But regardless of where you are on the omnivore-herbavore spectrum, taking at least one day out of the week to go totally meatless has some major health benefits, and is definitely worth making a regular healthy habit.

Rocking a Meatless Monday just once a week will:

  • Lower your cancer risk
  • Reduce your risk of heart disease
  • Help you lose weight
  • Reduce risk of diabetes
  • Increase lifespan
  • Improve your nutrition
  • Reduce your carbon footprint

Pretty powerful stuff for just one day of healthy plant-based eating, right??

Here are some great recipes to get you started:

Think You Don’t Have Time to Cook Dinner?

By: Natasha Uspensky, CHHC

“I don’t have time to cook” is one of the most common challenges I hear from my clients and readers that keep them from eating healthier. And I bet you struggle with this as well!

I get it: You’re tired. You had a long day. The last thing you want to do after work is slave away in the kitchen.

So you go out and eat a big, calorie bomb of a meal, or you order takeout Thai food, binge-eat frozen pizza or chips and salsa, or worse yet, sup on some packaged, processed crap you found in the back of your pantry.  Or if you do cook, you’re so starving and stressed that you resort to fatty comfort foods to help yourself feel better.

Yes, my friends, this is definitely getting in your way of being in your ideal body, waking up with tons of energy, and looking and feeling your absolute best.
