Ideas for Plant Based Meals

One of the best things you can do to lower cholesterol is to eat less (red) meat AND more greens…but for many of us a vegetarian or vegan diet is too large a shift. One small step that can pay big dividends is to incorporate more ‘plant-based’ (aka vegetarian or vegan) meals into your meal planning.

But I’m often at a loss for vegetarian meal ideas—it just feels so much easier to throw chicken on the grill. So when the New York Times recently launched a newsletter called THE VEGGIE I decided to give it a try.

The newsletter is written by Tejal Rao, a restaurant critic for the New York Times whose articles I find smart and informative. I especially like that she’s not a vegetarian: read more about what she’s trying to accomplish with this newsletter in, A Fresh Newsletter That’s Not Just for Vegetarians.

We shall see if it can inspire me to add a vegetarian meal to my weekly meal planning (when I remember to meal plan!)
